Strategic advisory and comms agency Blackstock Consulting has appointed Harriet Shone as a director.
Shone will expand the agency’s policy and advocacy work, which focuses on the built environment, logistics and technology sectors.
Prior to joining Blackstock, Shone was head of the Liberal Democrats’ international office, where she led projects, worked on campaigns and liaised with top officials across a variety of countries. She also help a number of other roles both in parliament and at the Party’s headquarters.
Andrew Teacher, founder of Blackstock Consulting, said: “As our business has grown, more and more of our work has focused on helping businesses grow and advising them around policy, regulation and strategy.
“We’re committed to being seen as thought leaders in the built environment and across technology-related issues. Harriet’s extensive experience will prove crucial in helping us further expand Blackstock and provide the best possible advice for our growing client base.”
Shone added: “Working through two general elections and a referendum on the front line of British politics has been inspiring and I’m excited to be able to build on my experience in a growing, entrepreneurial consultancy that continuously helps its clients to set the agenda.”
