Powerscourt has brought in David D’Arcy, former international press and comms manager at the European Commission, as a senior consultant.
D’Arcy has some ten years’ experience with the EC, including a stint as senior press officer in London. His last 12 months included a sabbatical with the United Nations.
His experience spans comms, diplomacy, policy and advocacy across industry sectors including financial services, digital, data protection, climate change and energy. Before joining the European Commission, David worked in a variety of journalism, private sector communication and TV production roles.
He will be based in Powerscourt’s Dublin office.
Rory Godson, chief executive, said: “David has an ideal background for a Powerscourt colleague: journalism, international experience, working at the Commission. He offers a rare combination of cool-headed analysis and passionate advocacy. He will offer our clients great insight into the workings of Brussels.
“While David will work across our firm’s client base, he will be based with our Dublin team. Our distinctive proposition to Irish and international clients is that we can offer the same quality of service in Dublin as in London but with a perfect cultural affinity.”
