‘In the past year, Tim has grown crisis revenue in the EMEA region by more than 30 per cent, leading and co-ordinating some of Europe’s largest clients,’ said Jack Martin, global chairman and CEO.

‘In his new role as co-chair of the global crisis practice, Tim will continue to manage issues and crises across all time zones and regions. His experience in developing and managing crisis communication strategies for high-profile companies will undoubtedly prove beneficial to our clients facing or anticipating a crisis situation.’

Luckett joins Chris Gidez as co-chair of the global practice while retaining his role as MD of the EMEA crisis team. With Gidez, Luckett will provide counsel and support to companies and organisations across the globe as they prepare for, manage and recover from reputation-threatening situations.

Luckett’s promotion follows on from the departure of H+K’s crisis comms associate director Duncan Gallagher to Edelman. A replacement for Gallagher has not yet been announced.

Before joining H+K, Luckett spent ten years with national newspapers, starting out as a news and sports reporter and rising to positions of crime correspondent and news editor.

He said: ‘The crisis practice is one of the fastest growing areas of our business and moving into 2013, I look forward to ensuring the quality, consistency and relevance of our crisis offer on a global basis.’
