Pagefield has appointed Kieran O’Connell, formerly of Tata Steel, as an associate partner in its public affairs team.
O’Connell was public affairs manager at the global steel producer. Previously, he was a senior consultant at Hanover Communications where he worked with clients including Cuadrilla, Three and BlackBerry.
Oliver Foster, managing partner at Pagefield, said: “We are delighted to be adding yet another high quality team member to Pagefield.
“We have always prided ourselves on having a mix of in-house and agency experience and Kieran ticks both those boxes. We know our clients and the wider team here will benefit from his knowledge and understanding of government and some really interesting and challenging sectors.”
O’Connell added: “Over the last few years, Pagefield has quickly built a reputation as one of London’s most successful and laterally-thinking agencies. I am looking forward to starting and working with a very diverse and high profile mix of clients.”
He takes up his role in mid-March.
