The move is a response to the increase in M&A work emanating from the EU for the agency. Will Tanner has been promoted from associate partner to partner, and now heads Finsbury’s UK public affairs business.
In addition, Finsbury has hired John Gray as a senior account executive, taking its political and regulatory team to eight. He has for the past six years worked as a senior aide to Labour MP John Grogan, who is also chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group. Gray’s clients include Punch Taverns and Reed Elsevier.
