Henry Cook (pictured) joins Fleetwood founding partners Isaac Levido, Michael Brooks and Peter Dominiczak as their first new hire at partner level.
Cook said: “Isaac, Michael and Peter have built a dynamic and exciting new agency which is providing the highest quality advice and insight. I cannot wait to get stuck in.”
The appointment comes during a period of growth for the company. Cook joins an expanding team including Ben Jafari, Skye Buttenshaw and Lyle Hill.
Cook brings 10 years of Whitehall experience as a special adviser, having worked for five government departments. He was a senior adviser to former Prime Minister Boris Johnson until February this year, and was the lead No. 10 adviser on the COVID-19 response, following a stint running the Government grid.
During the 2019 general election campaign, run by Levido, Cook worked as a speechwriter and campaign co-ordinator to support Boris Johnson’s re-election.
He also has extensive campaigning experience, having worked on the 2015 and 2019 general elections for the Conservatives and the EU referendum campaign for Vote Leave.
Dominiczak said: “Businesses across the UK are facing incredibly challenging times, and we’re proud to have Henry join the stellar Fleetwood team advising them.”
