Rivett-Carnac, who joined Headland yesterday as a partner, most recently focused on the telecoms, media, technology and energy sectors at Brunswick.
He was also the agency's senior digital consultant in the UK, leading the London office’s digital and social media practice. Prior to joining Brunswick itself as a director in 2011, Rivett-Carnac was a founding member of Cantos, a video and digital marketing business owned by Brunswick.
Chris Salt, Headland CEO, said: "Andy is a leading practitioner and we feel privileged he’s chosen to join us. His combination of experience across financial PR and digital strategy, and his particular knowledge of the technology, media, telecoms and energy sectors has interested us for a long time. He will be an ideal fit as we strengthen these areas of our business and continue to build our rounded offer."
Founded in 2005, Headland employs about 50 people from its London office. Recent account wins for the agency have included banking group Paragon, retailer New Look and asset management group Profile Financial.
