Former daily editor steps up to PR director

A former editor of Liverpool’s Daily Post has landed a senior role at a leading public relations agency in the city.

Jane Wolstenholme, left, who also writes fiction under the nom-de-plume Jane Costello, has become director of corporation public relations at Kenyon Fraser.

Her roster of clients currently includes Merseytravel, The Royal Liverpool University Hospital and Smokefree Liverpool.

She said: “Kenyon Fraser is a fantastic company and I’ve been bowled over by the creativity and enthusiasm of its staff – and how hard they work to get results for their clients.

“The firm has grown significantly in the last two years and I’m extremely excited about being a part of that success.”

Managing director Richard Kenyon added: “Jane brings a wealth of media experience and contacts to the business following her time both as a journalist and as a PR consultant.

“We’re absolutely delighted to have her on board.”
