Brunswick's current London head, Simon Sporborg, who has been UK managing partner for the past seven years, will take a new role as senior partner focused on client advisory.
Meaghan Ramsey joined Brunswick in 2016 and is a partner in the firm’s Business & Society offering. She works with companies on issues including climate change, financial inclusion, human rights, access to healthcare, sanitation and education, and previously worked at Unilever, where she led the global social impact work of some of its biggest brands, including Dove.
Tom Burns has been with Brunswick since 2004 and is co-lead of the firm’s global Financial Institutions Group. He has advised companies on high-profile and sensitive situations, including transactions, capital-raisings, IPOs, crises and litigation.
Prior to Brunswick, Burns worked in policy and communications roles in the public, private and voluntary sectors. He is a trustee of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh's Commonwealth Study Conferences (UK Fund).
Brunswick chief executive Neal Wolin said: “I am delighted that Meaghan and Tom will lead our London office in its next phase of growth. They are extremely experienced strategic advisors and bring complementary expertise and skills to these important roles. As Brunswick continues to enhance our capabilities and offer ever-more value to our clients, London will play a critical role in the ongoing development of our firm. I look forward to more years of sustained growth in our London office under the leadership of Meaghan and Tom.”
Wolin said Brunswick has grown significantly under Sporborg’s leadership. “He has cemented our market leadership in the UK and helped to create an extremely strong platform to continue building the office,” he said.
