Webber Shandwick UK boosts public affairs bench strength with hire of new Managing Director Anthony Marlowe

Anthony Marlowe is to join Weber Shandwick’s UK public affairs team in the newly created role of Managing Director, Public Affairs, with a brief to grow the firm’s political and government relations practice.

He joins from Edelman, where he was Deputy Managing Director for Public Affairs. He will report to Rachel Friend, UK CEO (pictured), and will work alongside Jon McLeod, Weber Shandwick’s Corporate Financial and Public Affairs Chairman (pictured next to Anthony) and ex-Sky political journalist, Joey Jones, who is Head of Public Affairs.

The move comes amid an unprecedented rise in client interest in public affairs support, as the UK prepares to leave the European Union, and as political uncertainty remains the norm for businesses and organisations operating across the country.
