Rowson said: “I’m delighted to be joining Lansons at such an exciting time for the agency.
“It’s an excellent business with a strong reputation and big ambitions, and I’m really looking forward to developing a research and strategy capability that will help drive the agency forward.”
Rowson brings more than a decade of experience in research and strategy projects. Before joining Lansons, he co-led the Government & Corporate Affairs specialism at Yonder Consulting, where his experience spanned sectors such as sport, technology, finance, media and telecommunications, with a previous client roster including the Premier League, BT Group, KPMG and NatWest.
The senior appointment is one of the first under Lansons’ new CEO Gordon Tempest-Hay. Tempest-Hay said: “Insight, which unlocks undeniable truths, is the key to resolving a client’s toughest challenges.
“We are building a capability at Lansons to help resolve the most intractable problems facing businesses and society, and to have someone of David’s experience and expertise to drive that forward is something of a coup.”
More senior appointments will be announced in the coming months as Lansons enters a new era under Tempest-Hay.
