New PR beat for ex-editor Maria McGeoghan

Former Manchester Evening News editor Maria McGeoghan is back in work at one of the North West’s leading marketing and PR agencies.

Maria, pictured, left the MEN earlier this year amid a wide-ranging editorial restructure by publisher Trinity Mirror that saw editors-in-chief appointed to its daily newspaper titles.

Now she has been appointed as director of strategy and operations at the Cheshire-based Scott Partnership.

The agency, based in Holmes Chapel, specialises in PR and marketing for clients in the science, healthcare, chemical and environment sectors and also has offices in Cambridge, where it recently acquired two subsidiaries, the US and China.

Said Maria:  “The Scott Partnership is a real success story and I am delighted to be joining such a talented and enthusiastic team.

“They are embracing new challenges in new markets and I look forward to working hard to help achieve TSP’s future ambitions.”

Founder and chief executive Kath Darlington added: “Maria joins the team to lead the strategy in our two Cambridge-based businesses, both of which are experiencing the growth that our group structure presents.

“Her solid foundation in the North-West of England will be an asset to us and as such, Maria will also help us strengthen our footprint locally, both in the UK and Europe. Our solid senior team will be enhanced by Maria joining us, as we take the business forward to exploit our many opportunities.”

    Wow Mr Darlington! How did you learn to speak in cliches like that?

    Wow Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms Digger! How did you manage to miss that the ‘Mr’ Darlington you take to task is called Kath? Her Twitter declares ‘CEO The Scott Partnership. Specialist in global science and technology marketing & communications. Wife. Mother. Mancunian.’ So unlikely to be an unfortunately named chap.
    Anyway, glad to see that Maria has found something to get her teeth into, even if, like so many of us now, it’s outside regional press.
