BEATTIE GROUP STRENGTHENS CRISIS COMMUNICATIONS OFFERING WITH KEY HIRE
Thursday, 14 November 2019
Beattie, the integrated agency, has expanded its rapidly-expanding crisis and reputation management offering by hiring lawyer Rhiannon Evans.
Beattie’s specialist crisis practice – which includes its Only Crisis brand – has enjoyed its most successful year ever, picking up a number of high profile accounts across the charity, legal, pharmaceutical, banking and finance sectors.
Rhiannon graduated with a first-class law degree and spent six years advising on some of the most high profile regulatory, financial and corporate crime cases across England and Wales. Her clients have included prominent companies, charities, business leaders and public figures.
Director Chris Gilmour, who heads up the crisis offering across Beattie’s 12 office UK network, said: “There has been a shift in the expectations of crisis clients over the years, with a requirement for their communications consultants to be far more than a reactive press office.
“It’s vitally important that organisations take on board strategic communications counsel capable of complementing, rather than competing with, their simultaneous legal, operational and reputational considerations.
“Rhiannon’s wealth of experience as a financial crime and regulatory lawyer, along with her ability to give practical advice on reputation management, will be of significant benefit to our clients and will complement the team’s existing strengths.”
Rhiannon will be based at Beattie’s London HQ. Beattie has 12 offices in the UK and Ireland including Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow. Other group brands include Only Marketing, Only Retail and Only Digital.
