Associate editor of weekly newspaper Financial News, Maggie Pegano, has joined international and public relations consultancy Shared Value Limited, as a partner.
Pegano, who will be able to draw on her network of contacts both in the UK and internationally, will be responsible for business development and the development of new clients for the firm.
Prior to Financial News, where she was launch editor in 1996, Pegano has worked right throughout the national broadsheet press. This includes spells as city writer at The Sunday Telegraph, financial editor at The Independent on Sunday and city correspondent at The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and The Times.
Maggie Pegano was also the founder and managing director of an executive search practice, which specialised in the media and communications industries and the placing of nonexecutive board directors, and has worked in television and radio as a presenter.
Pegano said: “The job is very mediabased which is very appealing and I am looking forward to making the switch from financial journalism to financial public relations.”
