Energy specialist Eyles has been taken on as part of WRG’s plans for growth in the energy sector and she is expected to develop the business at a global level. Eyles will use her background in the energy and maritime sectors to develop WRG’s Shell account. 

Eyles has more than 15 years of experience in international marketing, client handling and communication across Asia, Middle East and the US. She has worked exclusively within the energy and maritime sectors for nearly eight years, holding senior positions both agency and in-house. Her most recent role was as head of communications for JLA Media, a niche PR consultancy serving the global maritime and energy industries.

Eyles said: "I’m thrilled to join WRG at such an exciting stage in the development of the business and on such a prestigious account.

"I hope that my industry knowledge will contribute another dimension to the capabilities of WRG, blending with the formidable skills of the existing team to evolve the service offering we can deliver to clients like Shell."

Danny van Otterdyk, head of communications production at Shell, said: "We’re looking forward to working with Nicola and the wealth of experience she will bring to the agency-client relationship."
