Sheppard goes to bat for VMA Group

Recruitment firm VMA Group has appointed a former Boots lobbyist to oversee its public affairs division.

Jonathan Sheppard is a former public affairs manager at Boots. More recently he set up Crossbench Consulting, where he worked for a variety of political clients including Roger Helmer, Conservative MEP for the East Midlands, and Phillip Oppenheim, the flamboyant ex-Tory Treasury minister who has recast himself as political pundit and motivational speaker.

Sheppard joins VMA Group as head of its public affairs division.

Rival political recruitment specialist Ellwood and Atfield recently appointed Jenny Ungless, a former chief of staff to ex-Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith, as associate director (PRWeek, 30 May).
