I am delighted to announce that today Edelman has appointed Lord Paul Myners as Chairman of Edelman UK. This appointment marks another important milestone in the evolution of our business.
Lord Myners brings decades of experience at the highest level of business and politics. He spent most of his professional career in fund management with N.M. Rothschild & Sons and Gartmore, before chairing a number of major companies including Guardian Media Group, Marks & Spencer and Land Securities.
He has also been a member of the Court of The Bank of England and was City Minister in the last Labour government from 2008 to 2010, joining at the very moment that the Treasury was tasked with saving the banking system from collapse. He is chair of the London School of Economics & Political Science and a former Chairman of the Guardian Media Group.
Taking on this role, Myners said: “As a businessman, and in government, I always placed enormous value on the senior counsel and innovative thinking at which Edelman excels. I am looking forward to working with Edelman’s senior leadership team and playing my part in Edelman’s future growth.”
