Curtin&Co captures former Conservative MP Andrew Bingham
He becomes the second recently-ousted Tory MP to move into public affairs.
Former Conservative MP Andrew Bingham has resurfaced at planning public affairs agency Curtin&Co after losing his seat in this year’s general election.
Bingham served as Tory MP for High Peak in Derbyshire from 2010 to 2017. During his time as an MP, he voted against equal marriage and served as parliamentary private secretary to the international development secretary Justine Greening.
At the recent general election, he lost his seat to Labour’s Ruth George by 2,322 votes.
In his new post as an associate director at Curtin&Co, Bingham has been charged with assisting the company’s expansion into the Midlands and East Anglia.
Curtin&Co chief operating officer, Nick Stanton said: “Andrew’s experience in the High Peak constituency offers insight into planning and development in rural areas, useful for the company’s planned expansions”.
Bingham becomes the second recently-ousted Tory MP to move into public affairs after PLMR brought in former education select committee chair Neil Carmichael.
