Three UK hires Headland for corporate communications

Headland has been appointed by the mobile network Three UK to advise on corporate and financial communications.

The brief spans senior communications advice, press office support, corporate and financial PR and campaigns.

Headland was appointed following a market review and competitive pitch process. Partners Dan Smith and Andy Rivett-Carnac will lead the team.

Justin Bass, director of legal & corporate affairs at Three UK, said: “We have an exciting period ahead of us and we recognised that achieving our ambitions requires a different approach. At every stage, Headland has demonstrated strategic and creative thinking, a depth of experience and an ability to deliver a full-service corporate and financial communications offer.”

Dan Smith, partner at Headland, said: “Being appointed by Three is a significant moment for Headland. In just thirteen years, Three UK has gone from launch to 10 million customers. It is one of the most successful challenger brands in the UK, operating in a highly regulated and scrutinised environment.

“The business is now in a fascinating new stage of growth and we’re delighted they have chosen to work with Headland which, like Three, has been built to challenge the status quo.”
