MR welcomes Sir William Lyons winner to the team


Motoring Research has further strengthened its client-focused team with the appointment of 2012 Guild of Motoring Writers’ Sir William Lyons Award Winner Andrew Brady as content assistant.

Andrew this week joins the Harpenden, Hertfordshire editorial agency in the newly created role that will support the team’s ability to deliver both content and back end solutions.

In the role, Andrew will work closely with the five-man team and will concentrate on supporting the editorial and technical side for one of Motoring Research’s blue chip clients, MSN Cars.

Andrew will also focus on Motoring Research’s in-house new car price and specification database, which is used to deliver editorial data listings to several prominent online and print publications.

Speaking of his new position, Andrew said: “I’m really excited to join the Motoring Research team as content assistant.

“After three years of studying journalism at university and a stint as a freelancer, the hard work has paid off and I’ve made it into the industry I’ve always dreamt of working in.”

Editorial director Richard Aucock said: “We are delighted to have appointed someone of Andrew’s calibre. He has already proven himself during training and, now he’s officially on board, I’m confident he’ll be a great asset to our team.

“What’s more, wearing my Guild of Motoring Writers’ Chairman’s hat, I’m particularly pleased to have him as part of our team. It’s great to help a fellow Jaguar/GoMW Sir William Lyons Award winner break through into this great industry.”

Andrew’s appointment comes just months after Motoring Research revealed Gavin Braithwaite-Smith had been appointed features writer. The two new appointments will further strengthen MR’s ability to deliver high quality writing and content to key clients such as MSN Cars, Top Gear and FortyOneSix.

Editor CJ Hubbard remains Motoring Research’s key point of contact for MSN Cars and news editor Sean Carson will continue to deliver agenda-leading content to all clients – all overseen by managing director Peter Burgess.
