Hume Brophy hits up Whitehouse Consultancy number two Helen Munro

Munro is said to be joining the rival firm as a replacement for Robert Condon.

Hume Brophy has pounced for The Whitehouse Consultancy managing director Helen Munro to run its 15-strong UK public affairs team.

The lobbying and corporate PR firm founded by John Hume and Eoin Brophy has signed up Munro to replace Robert Condon, according to well-placed sources.

Condon quit earlier this year to head up government relations for tech firm VMware. Hume Brophy also recently lost director Chris Martin to Ketchum.

PAN  understands that Munro will take over as Hume Brophy managing director later this year. However Munro declined to comment on the move, as did senior figures at Hume Brophy.

As managing director at The Whitehouse Consultancy, Munro has been founder Chris Whitehouse’s de facto number two for four years. She rejoined the agency in 2014 having previously been a director from 2000 to 2006 and gone on to be head of communications for the ‘Energy Bill Revolution’ campaign.

“Helen brings an excellent and extensive track record of nurturing relationships with clients,” said Whitehouse when she rejoined in 2014. “And because she was one of our earliest employees, she understands our distinct and friendly ethos. We couldn’t have hoped for a better match to run the business as its grows.”

Hume Brophy recently named former Conservative MP James Wharton as its first corporate and public affairs chairman. The ex-minister joined the lobbying firm last year as a part-time senior adviser, effectively replacing fellow Tory Esther McVey
