Knights Media & Public Relations has welcomed Graham Buckley to its team.

The latest appointment reflected what the agency said was "Knights MPR’s ambition to increase its impact for the benefit of clients, business, society and the environment".

The Truro-based agency – which specialises in advisory communications and public relations for clients across the energy, shipping, technology and engineering sectors – said it had seen increased demand for its services from global brands, including the world’s third largest energy company – Total.

Knights MPR founder and MD, Jason Knights, said: “I am delighted that Graham has joined our business. His career and track record demonstrates not only his exceptional technical ability, industry knowledge and reputation, but also his passionate desire to advance the growth of value-added communications for business.

“It’s the perfect fit, because Knights MPR is deeply committed to working with companies that are making the transition to outsource their communications and public relations by using specialist support.

"With Graham on board, working alongside our growing team of experts, we can further amplify our support to local, national and international companies.”

Knights MPR said award-winning PR consultant Graham was "known for his clear, strategic and results-focused approach, having worked with global brands across a range of industry sectors including oil and gas, health and safety, renewables, industrial engineering, construction and medical".

Previous clients have included Honeywell, Globus Group and Marigold Industrial.

Graham said: “With a growing range of renowned national and international clients – many of which are facing increasing regulatory and commercial pressures – it’s a really exciting time to be joining Knights MPR.

"The team is a highly experienced one bringing strategic internal and external communications support, that is delivering measurable benefits right across the client roster.

"Applying value-added communications and brand awareness strategies across companies and their supply chains, should remain a top priority for business development, especially in the current Covid-19 climate.”
