Hampshire hires for news position

Hampshire County Council this week brought in Fiona Holgate as head of news to replace Kate Ball, who is going on a year’s maternity leave.

Holgate is managing the county’s press office, leading a team of seven. She is responsible for corporate PR, marketing, internal comms, market research and media relations. A former journalist and producer for BBC show Look North, Holgate has relocated from Orkney, where she was a PR consultant for the NHS.

The Audit Commission gave Hampshire an ‘excellent’ performance rating in October last year.
