Steven King leaves Policy Exchange after two years as external relations director.

The think tank is said to have close links to Tory leader David Cameron. It was set up in 2002 by Nicholas Boles, now Boris Johnson's chief of staff at City Hall, and Michael Gove, now in the shadow cabinet.

Before joining Policy Exchange, King spent six years as an advisor to the former First Minister of Northern Ireland David Trimble.

King joins APCO as an associate director.
