Taylor confirmed as Future’s head of communications
Bath based special interest media group Future has confirmed the appointment of Chris Taylor as its head of communications following a report last week.
Taylor joined from IPC Media where he was group head of PR, and will report to UK chief executive Mark Wood.
In the role, Taylor will be responsible for all aspects of Future UK’s external and internal communications. Managing a team of four, he will oversee media and public relations, as well as internal communications across the portfolio, which is based in London and Bath.
"I’m delighted to welcome Chris to Future," said Wood.
"He has a proven track record in developing and delivering innovative PR strategy, with a focus on supporting business objectives. We’re delivering brilliant editorial content and first class advertising solutions across a range of digital and offline platforms. Chris will help us amplify those stories.”
A former journalist, Taylor is known for having recently oversaw the delivery of the consumer PR campaign for the Shockwaves NME Awards 2011.
He created and implemented the PR campaigns for some of the biggest magazine launches of the last 20 years – including Nuts and Look.
“Future rightfully has a fantastic reputation for delivering compelling content to passionate consumers,“ said Taylor, who will start his new role as on 26 April.
"It is leading the way in developing digital propositions for its diverse audiences and the prospect of joining the team and helping to develop that narrative is truly exciting.”
