London, UK – 19th January 2016 – Jump, a specialist B2B agency that provides complete international PR, marketing and creative services to the video industry: broadcast, post production, connected TV, cable, satellite and service suppliers, has announced the appointment of Alicia Root as PR Associate. Alicia, who has vast industry experience as both a PR professional and journalist, takes on the position with immediate effect.
Prior to joining Jump, Alicia held the role of US Account Executive at Platform PR, where she represented clients in the broadcast, TV, and digital media space. Prior to Platform PR, Alicia worked as a PR consultant for other agencies across the broadcast/professional video sector.
