Citypress strengthens social media team with Sky News hire

We’ve hired Sam Elmidoro from Sky News to join the agency’s growing social media team.

Sam joins Citypress as senior social media manager, delivering campaigns and providing strategic advice to clients across the agency.

In her previous role as senior social media producer at Sky News, Sam managed news output and analytics across all the brand’s social media channels, which have a combined audience of more than 13 million people.

Prior to joining Sky, she worked predominantly in media journalism, including PRWeek and Brand Republic.

Ruth Lee, director of social at Citypress, said: “Sam brings direct experience of delivering news and engaging content to an audience of millions on a daily basis.

“Her news skills and judgement, combined with deep analytics capability, further strengthens our growing social team of strategy, analytics, content and community management specialists.”

The appointment follows a strong year for Citypress. The agency grew to 90 employees and was named a PRWeek Best Place to Work for the third year running.

The agency also invested in a new 10,000 sq ft head office in Manchester to support its continued growth.
