Alison Clarke, Chairman of Only Marketing, has been handed the PRCA’s most prestigious accolade; the Mark Mellor Outstanding Contribution to the PR Industry award.
Clarke joined Beattie Communications in January to lead its ultra-specialist marketing arm, which has expert teams working across nine industry sectors spanning from retail and healthcare through to education and property.
Beattie CEO Laurna Woods said: “We are so proud that Alison has been recognised not only for her personal achievements and outstanding career in the global communications field but also for all that she does to support the industry and give something back.
“She is a truly valued member of our team and we are privileged to have access to her years of experience and expertise.”
Alison Clarke said: "I am surprised, grateful and humbled to receive this award. There couldn’t be a better and more exciting industry to be plugged in to.
"Giving more to the talent we have is a pleasure and a privilege. Mark Mellor was one such enormous talent and it is an honour to receive an award in his name."
Clarke, a former PRCA chair and CIPR president, served as CEO of Grayling UK and Ireland from 2011. Prior to that she was Huntsworth Group business development director and Asia Pacific president of Weber Shandwick.
Just a few weeks ago she led a Beattie Bootcamp two-day training course for executives, looking at pitching for new business and how we present ourselves to clients.
