Industry maven co-founded Corbett & Keene in 1988.

Ginger Corbett is leaving Premier PR to pursue other projects that she has been developing. She will continue to work with Premier occassionally and said she will also work on finishing a book that she is researching.

Corbett has been with Premier since 2001, when her agency Corbett & Keene (set up with Sara Keene in 1988) was folded into Premier.

John Reiss, Chairman of Premier PR says: “Ginger is one of the industry’s most experienced and well-respected PR professionals. She has been a mentor to so many across the industry. Over the years she has added enormous value to Premier helping to build it into the agency that it is today with more than 100 publicists servicing clients across the entertainment sector. She is very much part of this company’s DNA and will be much missed by me and all her colleagues, but we wish her the very best with her future projects.”

Corbett said: “I am very proud to have set up Corbett & Keene with Sara Keene and have experienced a very small company growing into a big international success. I feel that I now need time to complete the research on a book that I have in development and a couple of design projects, as well as undertaking some occasional work with Premier. So my ties with the company will not be entirely severed.”

Premier was named UK PR Team of the Year at the 2011 Screen International Marketing & Distribution Awards.
