Today's City Moves cover logistics and strategic communications. Take a look at these movers and shakers:
Quiqup, the London-based startup that offers on-demand logistics services to consumers and retailers of all sizes – including Tesco and Burger King – has appointed Nick Carter to its advisory board. Previously, Nick served as the finance chief at car parts and cycle manufacturer Halfords, which was acquired by CVC in 2002 and completed an initial public offering in 2004. He also held the role of CFO at Gondola Holdings, the former owner of the Pizza Express, Ask and Zizzi restaurant chains, acquired by private equity firm Cinven in 2007. Nick is now an adviser and investor across the tech sector. He will advise the founding team as they look to grow the business, following Quiqup’s recent £20m series B funding round.
Charlotte Street Partners
Charlotte Street Partners, the strategic communications agency based in Edinburgh and London, has announced two new additions to its team and three promotions. The team is extended to 17 people with the recruitment of Martha Walsh as partner and Sabina Kadic-Mackenzie as associate partner. And with immediate effect, David Gaffney, Laura Leslie and Harriet Moll are promoted to partner. Martha Walsh joins from Tulchan, the respected London-based financial PR firm, where she spent more than six years, including a period as head of investor relations at BBA Aviation. Sabina Kadic-Mackenzie joins in September from Shelter Scotland, where she is a senior communications officer, following a varied career in agency and in-house communications roles.
Herbert Smith Freehills
Herbert Smith Freehills has appointed Paul Butcher to the new role of Brexit director. Paul will have responsibility for co-ordinating the firm's coverage of Brexit for clients. He will also take a prominent role representing the firm externally in relation to Brexit. This appointment comes as the formal Brexit negotiations between the UK and the EU get underway. Paul has been with the firm since 2001 and joined the firm’s Brexit team after the EU referendum. In that capacity he has worked closely with client, sector and practice teams across the firm’s worldwide network and has driven forward many of the firm’s most high-profile Brexit-related initiatives. As Brexit director, Paul will continue to work with each of these groups to deliver the firm's coverage of the challenges and opportunities of Brexit for clients. He will take a prominent role in representing the firm with the government, the firm’s Brexit partners – such as consulting and advisory firms the Boston Consulting Group, Global Counsel and Hanbury Strategy - and with other key City and industry stakeholders.
