Gordon lives in Exeter and works as a freelance copywriter and PR consultant. He was previously a journalist for 15 years, most recently as business editor of the Express & Echo. Outside work he enjoys supporting Exeter City, playing golf and volunteering with the comms team for TEDxExeter.

“I’m excited to be joining an independent local charity which makes a real difference to the lives of people in Exeter and campaigns to improve government policy and public services,” he said.

“Working at the Echo gave me an insight into the important role of Citizens Advice Exeter, its staff and volunteers in helping people with issues including debt, housing, benefits and employment.

“I’m looking forward to helping to raise awareness of this vital work and ensuring the charity continues to thrive.”
