After almost a year without an editor-in-chief, PRWeek has named Steve Barrett as its new editorial leader.

Barrett previously served as editor-in-chief of fellow Haymarket Media owned publication Media Week in the UK.

“Steve presents the perfect combination of extensive editorial leadership experience, deep marketing knowledge and insight, and a keen interest in developing editorial brands across all channels,” said PRWeek publishing director Julia Hood in a statement.

We’ve heard that PRWeek executive editor Erica Iacono was also in the running for the position. PRWeek‘s previous editor-in-chief Keith O’Brien left the publication last April to join social media focused agency Attention.
