Political Context has appointed Paul Hannon, formerly leader of
Newbury Council and a director of consultancy Sallingbury Casey, as its

it merged with the Rowland Company, Hannon worked as international
officer for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and, most
recently, as a freelance political consultant.
