Bell Pottinger staff and Times journalist among 10 Pagefield hires

Ex-Times journalist among 10 Pagefield new hires

Corporate PR agency Pagefield has recruited 10 new members to its team, as a part of an expansion process which started last summer, writes Mario Cipriano.

The hires include former The Times reporter Philip Pank, who joins as a partner, and former MHP and Bell Pottinger senior consultant James Baker, who joins as associate partner.

Sam Postlethwaite arrives as senior executive also from Bell Pottinger and will work alongside other new arrivals Ed Brown and Ben Stetson. The agency has also recruited Kate Begg as senior consultant and Nancy Martin as a consultant.

Pagefield has also hired two new researchers, Hal Stevenson and Olivia Crawford, and Jacqui Beaumont as a finance manager – a newly created role within the London-based company.

Oliver Foster, chief executive of Pagefield, said: “It is an incredibly exciting time for our agency, and our expansion reflects the phenomenal growth we have seen as a business over the past year.

“We continue to attract the best talent at all levels and, as the Pagefield family now offers to our clients more than 60 consultants and 20 senior advisers, we are able to deliver the highest levels of service to any client of any size, from any sector.”
