City & Corporate: Buchanan in director hire

Buchanan Communications has appointed Charles O'Brien as a director of the agency's natural resources practice.

He joins from Merlin Financial, where he advised a range of natural resource firms including FTSE 100-listed Kazakhmys and FTSE 250- listed Petropavlovsk, as well as non-UK-listed industrials including Airbus and EADS.

He will report to Bobby Morse, the senior partner who runs the agency on a day- to-day basis and heads the Buchanan Natural Resources Practice.

Morse commented: 'Our focus on specific sectors plays well to Charles' strengths as we continue to build on what has become the clear leader for quality growth companies in the natural resource arena.'

O'Brien, who has worked at KPMG in Dublin and ABN AMRO in Australia, will focus on the mining sector.
