Elliot will work across sectors at the agency, focusing on media strategy, special situations and developing the firm’s digital offering.

Rory Godson, Powerscourt’s founder, said: 'John’s a former Sunday Times colleague and a seasoned media operator with 15 years in high-pressure working environments under his belt. He has a seriously impressive range of skills and experience and bringing him aboard further increases Powerscourt’s rapidly-growing firepower.'

Elliot spent eight years as a journalist in newsroom at The Sunday Times, also writing features and a property column for the paper.

His 15-year career in the national media also includes stints with The Daily Telegraph, the Daily Mail and Condé Nast. He also spent three years as a commissioning editor at HarperCollins, where the authors he signed up and published included David Cameron.
