NEW YORK, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Global public relations leader Porter Novelli announced that Sally Ward, senior partner and managing director of the agency's London office, has been appointed president, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), effective June 1, 2013. In this role Ward will be responsible for the growth and profitability of Porter Novelli's regional operations. She will continue leading the agency's London office.

"Sally is an incredibly well-respected leader within Porter Novelli and the global communications industry, and she has played a critical role in building not just our London office but in providing strategic counsel to our team throughout EMEA," said Karen van Bergen, CEO, Porter Novelli, to whom Ward reports. "Her commitment to client service, innovation and collaboration will be crucial as she works to strengthen our capabilities across the region."

Prior to joining Porter Novelli, Ward was the founder and director of Plum Consulting, an executive search, talent management and senior-level coaching and mentoring firm. Before forming Plum, Ward spent five years in various capacities with Weber Shandwick in the UK, guiding the firm's consumer practice during a period of explosive growth, leading some of the biggest international clients, and acting as deputy CEO in the UK.  She left Weber at the end of 2006 as the firm's European vice chairman.

Before her tenure at Weber Shandwick, Ward spent seven years with Porter Novelli (formerly Countrywide Porter Novelli), as a portfolio director and later as the agency's UK development director, responsible for new business, marketing and creativity.

"I am honored to lead Porter Novelli's efforts in EMEA," added Ward. "We have a skilled team across the region that is committed to driving measurable change for our clients' businesses and that of our global network.  The intention is to further grow our capabilities to ensure we provide the best service to clients and remain a top place to work in the region."
