The director of a Lincoln PR company has made it into a midlands young entrepreneurs business list. Matt Hammerton (37) is the Managing Director of public relations company Lava PR and features in the 2010 42 Under 42 list by the Midlands Business Insider magazine.
The annual list is made up of the best people in business aged under 42, and features various sectors, from local government to the robotics industry. Hammerton is the only Lincolnshire businessperson to have made this year’s list.
Hammerton launched Lava in 2006, and has worked with the likes of Npower, Lincoln BIG, The Orders of St John Care Trust, and Enterprise UK. He previously worked as the Lincs FM Group‘s Director of Communications.
“I’m delighted and honoured to be included in this prestigious group of business people,” he said. “But more than being flattered personally, I’m pleased that Lava has been recognised as a business with a big future and the potential to make a significant contribution to the region’s economy.”
Lava is one of 250 PR companies to hold the Public Relations Consultants Association’s (PRCA) Consultancy Management Standard (CMS). The firm had also been shortlisted for the first Recommended Agencies Register awards, which ranks PR firms across the UK by client satisfaction.
