Senior BBC correspondent joins Stonehaven

John Moylan, one of the BBC’s most senior journalists, has joined Stonehaven as a director to bolster the consultancy’s reputation and media practice.

He will work alongside fellow directors, Caroline Preston, the ex-head of broadcasting at Downing Street, and Ben Thornton, a former partner at Portland.

Moylan has covered business and economics at the BBC for more than 20 years. His career spanned the dotcom boom, the financial crisis and he was also posted in Brussels as the BBC’s Europe business reporter.

Over the last six years, he led the corporation’s reporting of the energy sector, the steel crisis, the automotive industry and the gig economy.

“Stonehaven has an exceptionally talented team with a growing, diverse portfolio of clients who value strategic, evidence-based advice,” said Moylan. “I am looking forward to playing my part in the next stage of the Stonehaven story.”

Peter Lyburn, Stonehaven’s founder and CEO, added: “John’s contacts span industry, government, NGOs and trades unions. He brings unique experience and knowledge across key strategic sectors and industries.”

“Stonehaven uses data and insight to change businesses and build strategic reputation, stakeholder and customer campaigns,” he continued. “John’s experience builds upon our capabilities to both advise clients and execute campaigns.”

This appointment is the latest in a string of hires at Stonehaven which have taken its headcount to over 20 consultants.
