Nisse is currently director of media strategy at Fishburn Hedges and will leave the agency he joined in 2007 at the end of the February.
 
Newgate, established in September 2011 under the leadership of former Citigate CEO Jonathan Clare, is looking to establish a global consultancy working across City and corporate PR, and public affairs.
 
Clare commented: ‘Jason is one of the most experienced PR professionals in the industry. His insight as a senior journalist and experience at Barclays and Fishburn Hedges will be of immense value to both Newgate and its clients.’
 
Before joining Barclays in 2006, Nisse worked as a journalist for two decades on titles including The Banker, The Daily Telegraph, The Times, The Mail on Sunday and The Independent.
 
Nisse added: ‘I have really enjoyed my time at FH and have loved working with some wonderful, talented people, but the opportunity to help build a new force in international comms with Newgate is a challenge I can’t pass up.’
 
Newgate is owned by Porta Communications, an AIM-listed marcoms group set up in 2010 by Citigate co-founder David Wright. Clare, Newgate’s executive chairman, was also among those who founded Citigate in 1988.
