Moyse quits govt PR for Finsbury

Finsbury has poached former treasury minister Ruth Kelly’s press secretary Simon Moyse.

Moyse, who joined Finsbury last week as senior executive, worked for three years at the Treasury’s press office. He handled Kelly’s PR until her promotion to the Cabinet Office in last week’s Cabinet reshuffle.

He also handled comms around Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown’s international agenda and visits.

Moyse has handled communications around some of the treasury’s most high-profile reports, too. This includes Paul Myners’ investigation of institutional investment decision making and Ron Sandler’s review of the long-term savings industry.

Prior to joining the Treasury, Moyse was head of the industry desk at the Department of Trade and Industry.
