Curtin&Co managing director leads MBO of 20-strong agency
Catherine Senda has been at the planning agency since it was set up a decade ago.
The managing director of planning public affairs firm Curtin&Co has linked up with the chief operating officer to stage a management buy-out.
Founder Tom Curtin is stepping down from the helm as Catherine Senda and Nick Stanton lead the MBO. He will continue to act as a senior advisor.
Curtin said: “During 25 years in the business with Green Issues and Curtin&Co, it has always been my intention to hand the company on to the managers who I have worked closely with over the years and now seems the right time.”
Curtin&Co was founded in 2009 and has since grown to over 20 consultants. In 2017, the company opened a second office in Cambridge.
The full buy-out team comprises Senda, Stanton, Steve Carey, Paul Harvey and Mike Cox
Senda, who has been at the agency from the outset, said: “There has never been a more exciting time to be working in either politics or property so Nick and I are extremely excited to be taking on the challenge of helping our clients achieve more success.
“Having worked so closely with Tom for ten years, we would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his leadership and support. We have every confidence that Curtin&Co will continue to go from strength to strength in this new era.”
