Interel rejigs public affairs team with top roles for two lobbyists
The agency has promoted Katherine Morgan and hired William Wallace.
Interel Consulting has hired one senior public affairs operator and promoted another to plug the gap left by the the imminent departure of a top lobbyist.
APCO director William Wallace joins as a senior director leading the agency’s expanding tech and government procurement business. He makes the move to Interel after five years at the Covent Garden-based lobbying firm.
Before joining APCO, he was a senior consultant at Grayling and a Conservative party policy adviser focusing on IT telecommunications and procurement.
At the same time, Interel has promoted director Katherine Morgan to be deputy managing partner. Morgan was named this year by PAN as one of the new movers and shakers in the lobbying world. She is also in contention for consultant of the year at this year’s Public Affairs Awards.
The rejig comes as deputy managing partner Steve Edwards is set to join Living Streets as director of policy and communications.
Managing partner George McGregor talked up the moves as evidence of his agency performing well in 2018. He claimed: “Interel has gone from strength to strength this year. We’ve had some important client wins and our work is being recognised by our peers and clients because of our relentless focus on results.”
