He previously worked as a senior account director at Hanover for three years, before joining Freud Communications in June 2016.
Gavin Megaw, managing director, corporate and brand at Hanover, said: “Chris was a great loss to the agency, so we are delighted to get him back as we expand our breadth and depth.
“Our aim is to build the pre-eminent corporate practice for organisations looking to build their profile and successfully navigate major operational and reputational challenges.”
Calland is co-chair of the PRCA’s Crisis Group, and a member of its PR & Communications Council.
