Calogero was a board director at Peregrine, where he oversaw its UK client and business development activity, providing strategic direction, campaign development, reputation management and crisis communications to clients.
Lansons founder and chief executive Tony Langham said Calogero’s appointment was a sign of the firm’s commitment to its asset management client base.
"He joins us specifically to further strengthen our capabilities in this area, as well as to broaden our senior counsel to clients," Langham added. "Danny has also spent time working with clients in the US, travelling between the continents, which fits well with our international growth strategy."
Last month, Lansons acquired US agency Intermarket in its first expansion abroad. Between 10 and 20 per cent of Lansons’ business now stems from the US.
Prior to Peregrine, Calogero was associate director at Headland where he focused on developing the firm’s asset management practice and securing new clients including Cardano, PwC/Skyval, UBS UHNW, Octopus Investments, eToro and CDPQ. During this period, he was behind comms initiatives including UBS’ annual Billionaire’s Report and eToro’s cryptocurrency campaign. He has also had stints at Prosek Partners and Hill+Knowlton Strategies.
Furthermore, he has worked on international accounts such as AllianceBernstein, Janus Capital, Torus Insurance, Silicon Valley Bank and Stone Harbor Investment Partners, and advised clients including GE Capital, HSBC, Hymans Robertson, Novartis and Hermes Fund Managers.
Calogero has a degree in politics and international relations and is a keen pizzaiolo, having learnt the craft of pizza making in Italy.
