A few years ago, we needed some additional PR support across our roster, I asked a number of editors and journalists across a range of titles, which PR would always receive a returned call, they all mentioned Simon, so he was hired! He is strategic, professional and fearless in his pursuit to do what is right for the artist. I know our artists are in the best possible hands with Hackford Jones steering their publicity campaigns.
