Nottingham Digital Public Relations Agency, Reservoir, rehired former employees James Watkins and Glen Davies.

Watkins joins the agency as head of digital public relations and Davies as head of content and marketing.

Watkins previously worked for Tank between 2015 and 2018, and has since led digital PR teams both at various agencies and internally in the East Midlands.

Davies will manage the content team’s writers in their creative copy production, as well as lead the agency’s marketing and branding.

He was one of the agency’s first employees in 2011, leaving in 2015 to lead PR campaigns at SEO and digital marketing agencies in Leeds.

James and Glen each saw how it evolved at different times and that was a key part of what made them back down.

“For former employees, returning to a company is a rare thing, and it is a great asset that they have joined to help Tank reach the next stage of its growth and development as a relationship agency. digital audiences working at the highest level. “
