Caroline Preston, who was made an MBE in former Prime Minister David Cameron’s resignation honours, left her job as a director at the strategy and reputation consultancy Stonehaven to take on the role.

Her long history in the party’s communications operations includes stints at Number 10 and being part of the comms team during the 2010 and 2015 elections.

Preston, thought to be a key figure in the Remain campaign during the referendum, has the tricky task of reconciling the party membership’s widely differing views on the best way to proceed with Brexit.
