Hope&Glory has brought in Portas’ former head of comms, Seb Dilleyston, and Good Relations’ former consumer director, Anna Terrell, to join its newly-created board.
Dilleyston has more than 15 years’ experience, having worked at agencies including Freud Communications and Mischief PR before he worked freelance with Hope&Glory.
He joined retail and fashion specialist Portas as head of comms and worked with Mercedes on its London Fashion Week sponsorship, as well as with footwear brand Clarks and shopping centre operator Westfield.
Terrell has worked at various agencies including Golin and most recently Good Relations, where she served as consumer director.
During her time at Good Relations she worked with B&Q on its press office and with Royal Caribbean on the launch of its ship Harmony of the Seas.
Hope&Glory has also created a new board made up of founders Jo Carr and James Gordon-MacIntosh, partners Gavin Lewis and Adrian Chitty, as well as Dilleyston and Terrell.
Gordon-MacIntosh said: “Hope&Glory is now a 48-strong team with a growing portfolio of clients. The creation of a board means we can continue to bring in senior consultants to ensure those clients are receiving senior counsel and the team is working with the best in the industry to support its development.”
