David Leslie and Sam Barnett have joined Pagefield as consultants.
Leslie joins from international corporate, financial and political comms consultancy New Century Media, where he spent five years, while Barnett joins from Bell Pottinger’s corporate and brand team, where he spent two years.
Oliver Foster, managing partner of Pagefield, said: “In Sam and David, we’re delighted to be hiring some of the industry’s brightest talent to add yet more high quality knowledge and understanding of media and government to our growing team. Since the EU referendum, we’ve seen a significant increase in briefs coming our way and new clients appointing us, so this a really exciting time for us as an agency.”
Pagefield was founded in 2010 by Mark Gallagher, ITV’s former group corporate affairs director and chief of staff, with Oliver Foster and Sara Price. It specialises in corporate public relations and public affairs.
