Phil Askham joins Montfort Communications with more than 20 years of experience in employee communications, culture development and  organisational change.

He spent nearly 13 years at HSBC, where he was head global employee comms until the summer. He has also been head of internal communications at O2.

He is Montfort’s second high-profile appointment in recent days, after BlackRock veteran Richard Royds.

Askham, who will work alongside Montfort’s practice head Scott McKenzie and senior consultant Jerome Reback, joins at a time of high demand for internal communications expertise. 

“Phil will be a great addition to our team at Montfort and has already hit the ground running,” McKenzie said. 

“We have seen a significant increase in demand from clients for  advice and support around business transformation and employee engagement. Phil extends the range of services we can offer our clients and adds further capacity to one of Montfort’s fastest-growing practice areas.”
