LONDON: Penrose co-founder Andrew Nicolls is leaving MHP to join Hudson Sandler as vice-chairman in July.
In his new role, Nicolls will focus on developing the Huntsworth agency's financial services practice.
“[Nicolls] is an important senior hire,” said Hudson Sandler CEO Andrew Hayes. “His expertise across financial communications, corporate reputation, and the digital landscape will enable him to make a valuable contribution as we support our clients in a rapidly changing communications environment.”
Nicolls is an MD at MHP Communications. He co-founded financial services specialist Penrose in 1998 with Gay Collins and Shona Prendergast. Nicolls spent 15 years at the firm, which was sold to Engine Group in 2010 and merged with sister businesses Mandate and Hogarth to become MHP Communications.
Prior to that, Nicolls was a director at Ludgate Communications.
“Hudson Sandler is an entrepreneurial and ambitious business, and this is a great time to be joining one of the most respected brands in financial and corporate communications,” Nicolls said.
