Charlotte Street Partners expands with four new partners
Malcolm Robertson has 'ambitious plans' to build up his agency in London.
Charlotte Street Partners has appointed former Tulchan Communications director Martha Walsh as a partner.
Walsh spent six years at Tulchan and most recently was head of investor relations at BBA Aviation.
The Edinburgh and London-based agency has also hired Shelter Scotland senior communications officer Sabina Kadic-Mackenzie as an associate partner.
And it has promoted three of its senior team - David Gaffney, Laura Leslie and Harriet Moll – to be partners.
Charlotte Street Partners was founded by former BAA communications chief Malcolm Robertson and ex-SNP politician Andrew Wilson in January 2014.
The latest moves mean that the 17-strong agency now has eight partners.
Robertson said:“We are delighted to welcome Martha and Sabina to our talented, engaged and motivated team. In addition, the promotion of David, Laura and Harriet reflects their outstanding contribution to the development of the firm and their continued commitment to extending and improving our client services.
“Martha’s experience in investor relations and financial communications is particularly important to us as we extend and grow our offer in this area to clients in Scotland and across the UK. She has made an immediate impact. This is a market we feel is under-served from Edinburgh and we have ambitious plans to build the company’s presence in London.
He added: “Andrew and I are very fortunate to be building the firm with the support of a great board and a team of extremely capable and committed people who are working to make Charlotte Street Partners the best place in our sector to work in and work with. We continue to look for further opportunities to stretch the potential of our existing team and to recruit new talent. We hope to have further announcements to make later in the summer.”
