MRM Public and Regulatory Affairs has appointed former Campaign Manager Robin McGhee to spearhead its parliamentary and political intelligence unit. This is the latest in a round of hires by growing agency MRM, the multi-disciplinary financial services consultancy.
McGhee formerly ran the campaign of high-profile activist turned politician Maajid Nawaz, Chairman and Co-Founder of the anti-extremist Quilliam foundation. He is also a former Lib Dem parliamentary candidate having contested Kensington for the party at the 2015 election. An Oxford University history graduate, his career has focussed on political research and journalism.
McGhee will work across MRM’s range of public and regulatory affairs clients providing parliamentary and political intelligence.
Havard Hughes, MRM’s Head of Public Affairs commented:
Since we launched the public and regulatory affairs team last year we’ve continuing to expand our team and services. Robin’s research expertise will be a powerful asset to our parliamentary and political intelligence unit as we continue to grow and take on new clients.
His experience of Lib Dem politics will also be useful, particularly with Lib Dem peers pledged to hold the Government to ransom in the Lords.
Robin McGhee commented:
MRM’s public and regulatory affairs team has a reputation for a unique understanding the financial services and political landscape. I’m looking forward to working as part of a team especially as we head into a potentially explosive EU referendum with the future of the industry at risk.
