Charlotte Street takes a new turn
Edinburgh and London-based agency announces expansion into healthcare and investor relations markets.
Fast-growing lobbying firm Charlotte Street Partners has appointed two new partners as it creates new investor relations and healthcare practices.
Charlotte Street Partners was founded by former BAA communications chief Malcolm Robertson and ex-SNP politician Andrew Wilson in January 2014. It is chaired by businessman Sir Angus Grossart.
Tamsin Garrity joins as head of financial communications and investor relations, based in London, after working as an investment analyst for ten years - most recently at UBS. Investor relations is added to the firm’s existing financial communications offer.
Jo Nove is promoted to partner after five months with the firm. A former Labour party adviser, she will be head of client services and lead the healthcare practice, based at the company’s Edinburgh office.
Last year, PAN reported that Charlotte Street Partners had signed up Kevin Pringle, a former special adviser to Alex Salmond, as a partner and non-executive director.
In a statement, Robertson claimed: "This is a very significant moment for the company as we scale and extend our offer carefully."
He added: "We are putting significant investment into the growth of the company as we prepare for the next phase of our growth. It is always a challenging market but it also hugely enjoyable, as we build an outstanding team."
