Radio presenter’s firm set for liquidation

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 | BUSINESS NEWS

A distressed PR and events company run by Heart FM radio presenter Ed James is set for a liquidation hearing after the firm ran into financial difficulties.

A meeting with the company’s creditors will take place on Thursday 25 February in Droitwich to determine the next step for Ed James Ltd.

The company is run by Birmingham radio presenter Ed James and his partner Denise Mickle.

Mickle told The Business Desk: “We have been experiencing problems. We have lost a number of contracts and been a victim of bad debt. We have also had a company go under on us.

“Once we have had the meeting we should have more information about what happens next.”

Ed James Ltd is not currently in administration. However, the Ed James Group website was down at the time of writing. The PR and events company has represented the likes of Marco Pierre White’s restaurant in The Cube. It has also worked on behalf of automotive dealer Guest and Bournville College, which is based in Longbridge.

Creditors of the business have been told to attend the hearing at the St Andrews Town Hotel in Droitwich. The hearing has been organised by Justin Brown of MB Insolvency.

Mr Brown said he was unable to comment.
