The Diary gets many press releases in its email box each week but one from mortgage PR guru Richard Hurst caused amusement in the office last week.
In a bid to get publicity for his client, specialist lender Swift Group, Hurst revealed how the firm had chosen a member of staff to be the voice on the firm’s phone system. The release said that around 50 staff had competed for this highly esteemed job, with securities supervisor Penny Remington crowned the winner.
The Diary would like to say well done to Penny. We look forward to hearing her voice on the firm’s system soon.
