Lowick lures in Labour peer to head up new associates group
Kevin McKeever has signed up Spencer Livermore, Claire Kober, Caroline Edgar and Owen Meredith.
Public affairs shop Lowick has marked its second anniversary by setting up a new associates group led by Labour peer Spencer Livermore.
The group will be chaired by Livermore who was Downing Street strategy director under Gordon Brown. Also on the board are former Haringey Council leader Claire Kober, former Portland partner Caroline Edgar and Tory Reform Group chair Owen Meredith.
The board has been established to advise on emerging trends and insights across the corporate and political world. Kevin McKeever, founder and managing director of Lowick, said: “I’m incredibly proud of Lowick’s growth over the past two years. The appointment of our Associates Group comes at an exciting time of expansion.
"We’re ambitious for our future, which is firmly rooted in the high-quality work our first-class team is delivering for clients. We’re extremely pleased that Spencer, Caroline, Claire and Owen are joining us at this critical stage in our growth. Their individual and combined experience will be a huge asset for Lowick.”
Lowick was set up in 2017 by McKeever who was previously a director at Portland. Since then its work has included supporting the launch of the Independent Review into Integrity in Tennis, designing and launching the Community Engagement Board for Heathrow Airport and advising on political issues in property development for companies including U+I, Sainsbury’s and Clarion.
In a statement on the new role, Livermore said:“At a time of great uncertainty, Lowick is providing high-quality, critical advice to a range of businesses. They’re one of the most exciting new consultancies in London and I’m looking forward to chairing the new Associates Group, which brings together a fantastic range of talent.”
