Victoria Sheridan Consulting (VSC) has launched a financial PR division after handling the comms around wealth manager Harwood Wealth’s IPO announcement earlier this month.
Caroline Villiers joins the property-focused comms firm to expand its financial division over the next 12 months. Villiers has some 15 years’ experience in IPO, M&A and corporate restructuring communications. She has previously worked with Lehman Brothers and M:Communications.
On 11 March, Harwood Wealth announced its intention to float on London’s AIM market. No date has been confirmed for the IPO and VSC will continue to work with the wealth manager after it starts trading.
Victoria Sheridan, VSC founder, said: “Caroline brings a wealth of industry experience to our team and she will play a crucial role in helping me to firmly establish the VSC brand in this particular market.
“I decided to expand our services in this regard as I believe there is a real opportunity for us to deliver a competitive offering to organisations in the process of restructuring; particularly smaller firms who may prefer to team up with an agency of a similar size with complimentary organisational values.”
