At Cardew Group, Ballantyne advised Clydesdale Bank, Miller Group and C&C Group.

Previously, he was head of corporate comms at Scottish & Newcastle, ahead of the takeover of the brewer by Carlsberg and Heineken. Before that, he was head of the group comms team for bus and rail operator Stagecoach Group.

Ballantyne also worked in journalism for 25 years and is a former business editor of The Times. He held the same position at The Scotsman and The Sunday Times Scotland.

Ballantyne will report to managing partner Malcolm Robertson. Robertson said: "It is rare to find someone who combines Rob's excellent journalistic experience with a senior in-house track record and substantial agency insight. He also shares our desire to provide the best possible offering to our clients in London and Edinburgh and we are thrilled to welcome him to our team."

The appointment comes after the firm appointed David Gaffney from RBS as an associate partner in its Edinburgh office, earlier this month.
