Lansons has promoted Scott McKenzie, director and head of change and employee engagement, to joint MD. He will work alongside existing MDs Laura Hastings, Rebecca Mayo and Stuart Graham.
McKenzie joined Lansons as board director in December 2012, before being promoted to the management board in November last year. He helped has since established Lansons’ change practice, broadening the agency’s scope to expand into new sectors including healthcare and manufacturing.
Tony Langham, Lansons chief exec, said: “Scott’s contribution to our business to date, and to shaping our integrated consultancy offering, is considerable. He’s also won us some cracking clients.
“Scott is a widely respected and talented consultant, and this promotion recognises his role in the future success of our business. This relies on building our fantastic portfolio of retainer clients and also attracting an increasing number of significant higher value projects.”
McKenzie added: “Our work on a range of high profile change and corporate issues projects has enabled us to provide genuinely integrated advice and consultancy to some major clients, and the knock on effect has been that we’re increasingly diverse in terms of the organisations we work with, and with the skills we have in the building.”
Before joining Lansons, McKenzie was head of change and internal comms at Hill & Knowlton. He has also held roles at RBS, including heading up the internal and external comms of its private banking business.
