Also working at the new agency is Elliott Burton, former special adviser to business minister Anna Soubry, who worked with Kenningham in the Conservative press office on the 2015 general election campaign.

The consultancy is based in Covent Garden.

Kenningham departed Downing Street along with other figures in Cameron’s press team when Theresa May became Prime Minister after the EU Referendum last summer.

Kenningham was formerly a producer for the ITN Lunchtime News and also for Bloomberg.

He has appeared across the media, including the BBC, Guardian and FT, as a commentator during the current general election campaign.
