Lansons has hired Rollo Crichton-Stuart as board director to strengthen the consultancy’s financial comms remit.
Crichton-Stuart joins from an associate partner role at Bell Pottinger, which specialises in corporate, financial and political communications. He was a senior member of the capital markets team supporting clients across the financial and business services, energy and technology sectors. He also spent two years on secondment at MAERSK Oil & Gas UK.
Crichton-Stewart will support the growth of Lanson’s financial communications capability. The consultancy’s recent projects include the IPO of Metro Bank earlier this year.
Tom Baldock, director of financial communications, said: “Lansons is an ambitious agency with a great culture where high calibre practitioners can thrive. Rollo has all the attributes we look for in a senior hire and I’m looking forward to working with him as we expand our capital markets advisory work.”
Crichton-Stuart said: “I’m delighted to have joined Tom to expand Lansons’ financial communications capability. Lansons has a brilliant reputation for the quality of its work and it is one of the most forward-thinking agencies in the industry in terms of its culture and investing in the services clients really need. I’m looking forward to starting.”
