  • William Rees joins Kia’s award-winning Press and PR department
  • Currently studying Journalism, Media and Culture at Cardiff University
  • Melissa Lodge returns to continue her degree at the University of Newcastle

Will Rees is the newest addition to the Kia Motors (UK) Limited Press Office, and both the team and company warmly welcome him, as part of Kia’s student placement scheme. He will work under the guidance of Sara Robinson, Public Relations Manager (Brand & Dealer PR) and Daniel Sayles, Head of Press and PR.

Will will be involved in all aspects of the Press Office, ranging from monitoring the media coverage the brand receives on a daily basis and reporting it to senior management, right the way up to running his own PR projects and events, and developing the media exposure they receive.

Currently working towards a degree in Journalism, Media and Culture at Cardiff University, Will is taking a year in industry where he hopes to extend his knowledge of public relations and the media. He will be taking over the position from Melissa Lodge, who will return to finish her studies in English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Newcastle.

“The idea of working in Press and PR fascinates me, and I look forward to having the chance to prove myself working for such a highly acclaimed team,” said Will. He is keen to get involved with the entirety of the opportunities presented to him, and relishes the chance to work in the motoring industry; an industry that has always been of high interest to him.

Stephen Kitson, Director of Corporate Communications at Kia Motors (UK) Ltd, remarked on the newest arrival: “We are delighted to have Will working with us at Kia, and I’m sure that he will quickly feel comfortable and enjoy his time here. With the opportunities and support myself and the whole team offer, I have no doubt his talents will flourish.”
