Brunswick Group has hired Jon McLeod, who chaired Weber Shandwick’s UK corporate, financial and PA group, as head of its London PA operation. He’ll start in September.
McLeod stepped down from the Interpublic unit last month following a more than 20-year run of guiding clients through regulatory, financial and legal matters.
His goal at his new job “is to ensure that leadership and innovation in public affairs is right at the heart of Brunswick’s sustained evolution as a world-class advisory firm.”
Prior to joining Weber Shandwick, McLeod spent more than six years as board member of the East Midlands Regional Development Authority in Nottingham and two years as associate director of Westminster Strategy in London.
