Finsbury’s London office has brought Christina Mills on board as a consulting partner; working through her recently founded consulting business Christina Mills Communications Ltd.
Mills moved to consulting after more than 20 years in senior in-houes roles spanning FMCG (SABMiller), natural resources (Rio Tinto) and financial services (NatWest and Abbey National).
Based in London, Mills will help to expand Finsbury’s global employee engagement and internal communications capability, a growing area of the business.
She will work closely with Michael Abrahams and Craig Horowitz in Finsbury’s New York office, along with Finsbury’s other international offices and German partner agency Hering Schuppener.
Mills said: “I’m thrilled to be working with such a class act as the Finsbury team. I’ve always been impressed with the quality of the people and the culture of the business, and it’s great to have an opportunity to contribute to its next stage of growth.”
Christina was a Finsbury client for 10 years, most recently as group director of communications and reputation at SABMiller, managing the global internal and external communications for the $100bn recommended acquisition of the company by Anheuser-Busch InBev.
Roland Rudd, chairman at Finsbury, added: “Christina’s a great fit for us. She brings a rare combination of truly global in-house skills and experience. She has led both internal and external communications for cross-border M&A, financial calendar work and corporate strategy across multiple sectors.”
