?koda’s Press and PR department has appointed Iga Kowalska-Owen as Press Information Officer and Holly Robinson as Press and PR Assistant in a recent hiring spree which takes the team up to five.

Iga Kowalska-Owen joins the Milton Keynes-based firm from Golley Slater Public Relations where she managed the car manufacturer’s business sales account. As well as trade journalism, she brings with her consumer public relations experience and marketing skills.

In her new role, Iga will be in charge of product and brand information as well as ?koda’s press websites. She will also handle sponsorship and motorsport press activities and assist with media events.

With a passion for cars, languages and travel, the Polish-born team member is delighted to be joining the Czech manufacturer: “?koda is part of my Central European heritage, so I feel particularly fortunate to be representing the brand here in the UK. I look forward to communicating the many benefits of our cars to the media and the buying public.”

Holly Robinson joins the team on a work placement scheme from Leeds Metropolitan University where she is studying Public Relations and Marketing. Holly, who wants to join the car industry after graduating, will also be playing for Volkswagen’s netball team.

Cathie Bell, Head of PR at ?koda, comments: “I am delighted that Iga and Holly are joining us at ?koda. Their skills and experience will further boost our strong and friendly team and I believe they will fit in extremely well.”
