Mark is a thoughtful, pragmatic adviser who clients return to time and again. He cut his teeth in several leading communications consultancies before spending 10 years as head of public affairs at Whitbread. He joined Newgate in 2015 as part of its acquisition of PPS Group where he had been since 2005.
Mark benefits from having seen the world as both client and consultant. Actively involved in client accounts, Mark has particular strengths in energy, residential and leisure projects. He is a talented facilitator of community events (he has been awarded a certificate of professional development by the Consultation Institute) and is a seasoned political operator.
Working with Sussex Health Care on behalf of the parents of profoundly disabled young adults to provide appropriate health care facilities was a particularly rewarding experience. Although it was an obviously worthy cause the usual nimby issues had to be countered, with education and information being key.
