This year’s Rising Star PR Professional of the Year goes to AJ Bell’s Jack Pattinson, following a round of judging and a vote by financial journalists.

Jack joined the PR team in summer 2022 from a customer-facing role at AJ Bell, quickly establishing himself as an important contact for those up against a tight deadline and utlilising his experience building customer relationships to help journalists find retail investor case studies.

The judges were impressed by Jack’s speed and approachability. “Jack is clearly a hardworking member of an already hardworking team,” remarked one judge. “His work was clearly impactful and he has helped develop and strengthen relationships with the press,” commented another.
