Its award-winning solutions cover connectivity services, infrastructure hosting including public and private cloud, as well as a growing portfolio of cyber security solutions to defend customers’ critical infrastructure against a rising number of threats.

Starting with its first data centre in Montreal, today Continent 8’s private, connected network of data centres and points of presence span over 90 locations across four continents. It is expected to hit 100 locations in 2023, servicing newly regulated markets and providing connectivity to customers in strategic locations to support their global growth plans.

The company has a strong presence in European markets with state-of-the-art data centres in key iGaming hubs such as the Isle of Man, Malta and Gibraltar, where in the latter it has a unique data centre located 500m deep within The Rock inside a former Ministry of Defence facility.

Award-winning co-host of ITV Racing signs with fast-growing London agency

On the eve of Royal Ascot, Press Box PR is delighted to announce that Francesca Cumani, the UK’s leading female racing presenter and one of the faces of ITV Sport, has joined the agency’s talent stable.

Over the next five days, the multi-lingual thoroughbred TV personality will be front and centre of the Flat racing season’s most extensive and glamorous festival coverage.

Francesca is equally well known in Australia as the co-host of the prestigious Melbourne Cup. She has been integral to ITV’s horse racing coverage for the past eight years and is an SJA Broadcast Sports Presenter of the Year winner.

While horse racing is her first love, Francesca is keen to broaden her appeal and sees the Press Box team as the ideal partner to bolster her ambitions in the UK.

Press Box PR, a fast-growing creative and digital PR agency operating in sports, consumer, entertainment, and B2B markets, launched its talent management and publicity division two years ago, with Francesca joining the likes of former Royal butler Grant Harrold and 2023 Apprentice winner Marnie Swindells.

Cumani said: “I have enjoyed a long and productive relationship with my agent James Henderson who is based in Australia for the last 16 years and that will be ongoing but I am keen to explore opportunities closer to home and put the skills I have learnt to use both within the racing world and further afield. I am passionate about the great outdoors, animals, travel, food, fashion and culture.”

Lynn Carratt, Head of Talent at Press Box PR, added: “Our talent offering is unique in that, like the remainder of the agency, the team is made up of former journalists. We approach talent management and publicity from the perspective of maximising commercial value for our talent roster and brand clients by growing and sustaining earned media coverage. We’re delighted to be welcoming Francesca Cumani to the Press Box PR family and looking forward to many exciting plans ahead.”

The talent division is part of Press Box PR’s 40-strong London team, led by founder Alex Donohue, which also includes Jack Mansell (Head of Sport), Jack Watson (PR Week 30 Under 30) and Katie Storey (Head of Consumer).
