Rock Star Joins Gatehouse
In exciting news, Gatehouse has acquired RockstarComms – the publisher of the Journal of Internal Communication and the popular RockstarComms blog.
As part of the deal, founder Ian Harris, has joined us as Head of Content to oversee the launch of a number of innovative products and content platforms that will be rolled out in the coming months.
Ian comments: “With so much competition for employee’s attention, it’s harder than ever to reach people in a meaningful way. That presents a huge opportunity for internal communicators who can punch through the noise. Gatehouse is all about setting high standards and taking the opportunity to do something different, which is why I’m thrilled to be joining them.”
We’re excited to have Ian join us at such a pivotal time, his enthusiasm, insight and ambition will be a great asset to the team. Work has already begun on the development of brand new products that will seek to revitalise the industry and help our clients make a tangible difference within their own organisations.
We will continue to provide industry news and opinion at www.internal-communication.com, and publish the Journal of Internal Communication — a 100 page bi-monthly book, featuring stories and case studies from leaders in internal communication — available via subscription at www.joic.eu.
Ian will be based between our studio in Shoreditch, London and our recently opened second office in Brentwood, Essex.
