London, 24th October 2017: Pagefield, the award-winning communications agency, has expanded its team with over ten new hires, including former Times journalist Philip Pank and former MHP and Bell Pottinger senior consultant James Baker, who join as Partner and Associate Partner respectively.
This comes at an exciting time for the agency, following the launch of the 20+ strong Pagefield Global Counsel team earlier in October, with further hires across the agency, including Kate Begg who joins as a Senior Consultant, bringing with her an extensive knowledge of both the technology and transport sector, as well as Nancy Martin who has been appointed as a Consultant, with experience advising clients across retail, food, sport and financial services.
In addition to Pagefield’s senior hires, three Senior Executives join the growing team: Ben Stetson formerly of FleishmanHillard Fishburn, Ed Brown who joins from the Employment Related Services Association (ERSA) and Sam Postlethwaite from Bell Pottinger. Two new Researchers have also joined the team – Olivia Crawford and Hal Stevenson – as well as a newly created post of Finance Manager, taken up by Jacqui Beaumont.
Over the summer, Pagefield bolstered its senior leadership team by promoting Lucy Holbrook and Geoff Duggan to Partners.
This announcement follows the appointment of Liam Parker who joined Pagefield earlier this month from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), where he was Special Advisor and Director of Political Communications for the Foreign Secretary, Rt.Hon. Boris Johnson MP.
Oliver Foster, Chief Executive of Pagefield said: “It is an incredibly exciting time for our agency, and our expansion reflects the phenomenal growth we have seen as a business over the past year. We continue to attract the best talent at all levels, and, as the Pagefield family now offers to our clients more than 60 consultants and 20 senior advisers, we are able to deliver the highest levels of service to any client of any size, from any sector – combining global agency depth and breadth with the client service focus that has been our number one priority since we set up as an independent agency in 2010”.

We have worked for almost 200 clients since we opened our doors in 2010, including: Airbnb, Avon, Discovery, Kellogg’s, EDF Energy, AB InBev, Camelot, The British Library, Santander, The Museum of London and John Lewis.
