At Bell Pottinger, Scott advised clients on a range of capital markets, corporate, crisis and issues management communications.
Nick Miles, founder at Montfort, said: “Montfort is growing fast and Olly will add to our very strong offering in insurance, banking, broking and fintech.
“We are building an enviable position across the financial services sector, anchored by our pre-eminence in serving asset management clients, where the recent arrival of Mike Foster from Financial News has brought further firepower to our successful team. But Olly also has excellent experience outside FIG and he will add significantly to our generalist skill set.”
Scott said: “Montfort is an outstanding company with great momentum and world class consultants. I am excited to be joining such a focused and entrepreneurial business.”
