"We are delighted to welcome Sally back to the agency," said Gary Stockman, CEO, Porter Novelli. "She is an extremely well-respected leader in the industry with a 20-year track record of growing business both domestically and across borders. Her emphasis and personal commitment to attracting and developing talent will be especially valuable."

Ward said: "Taking on this role was a challenge that I couldn't resist. Porter Novelli remains a strong brand synonymous with quality work, and I look forward to helping to grow its position in the marketplace. Addressing that will be exciting, as will the opportunity to build an industry-leading team."

In addition to her roles as UK MD and partner, Ward will join Porter Novelli's executive committee.
