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.
