He will report to Amanda Pierce, the UK CEO of Burson-Marsteller, which last month hired UK public affairs veteran Kevin Bell as global public affairs chairman.

Day began his career working in Parliament in 2000 for the shadow secretary of state for trade and industry and the Conservative front bench.

His agency experience has also included roles at Euro RSCG Apex Communications, FleishmanHillard, Weber Shandwick and GPC International, working for clients such as News International, Coca-Cola, Marks & Spencer and British Energy.
