Opinion: My Best Hire - Jonathan Simpson

Carl Gibson, head of external affairs at British Energy, on 'natural campaigner' Jonathan Simpson.

'Raw, enthusiastic and fun were my immediate impressions when I hired Jonathan Simpson nigh on ten years ago at Westminster Communications.

'Jonathan was looking to make the crossing from a political party to the world of consultancy. I hired him because of his natural campaigning abilities and his infectious sense of fun. One campaign, 2Wheels Good, reinvigorated the Motorcycle Industry Association.

'He not only met but surpassed every target. All political parties promoted motorbiking in their manifestoes - delighting the client. The Motorcycle Action Group recognised Jonathan's contribution for bikers by making him an honorary life member.'

Jonathan Simpson is now corporate PR manager at VisitBritain.
