Neustria Partners was established in 2014 by the former Financial Dynamics colleagues, who mutually agreed to exit the business last month, PRWeek understands.

Bailhache has joined corporate reputation firm Montfort Communications as a senior consultant, Gorman will lead the listed practice of financial PR and communications consultancy KL Communications, and Henderson has returned to Skagen Funds, where he will lead UK communications.

Bailhache brings across his clients from Neustria Partners and has extensive experience in financial services consulting. At Montfort he will provide strategic financial PR and investor relations advisory services.

He was the managing partner at Neustria and was also instrumental in the growth of the financial services practice at FTI Consulting between 2003 and 2010, where he was a partner and managing director, before moving in-house to his client HSBC Holdings as head of global press.

At KL Communications, Gorman will work across a number of clients, including Neuberger Berman’s listed Private Equity, Global Floating Rate and Distressed Debt investment funds.

He brings more than 20 years of experience advising listed and unlisted businesses about their relationships across the stakeholder spectrum.

Gorman initially worked at UBS for eight years, where he ran investor, media and employee communications programmes in London and Zurich, and was responsible for UBS’s UK institutional asset management, wealth management and global private equity media relations.

Henderson previously worked at Skagen Funds as a client relationship manager and prior to that was senior vice president of FTI Consulting strategic communications. He returned to Skagen in September.
