Avisa Partners has brought John Procter on as a partner in its DC office.

He joins Avisa from Signal Group, where he most recently served as managing partner and chair of the firm’s communications practice.

He was previously executive VP at McBee Strategic Consulting, senior VP at Gibraltar Associates, director at DCI Group and press officer/spokesperson for the Coalition Provisional Authority during the Iraq War.

In his new position, he will add international brand management, policy communications and transnational dispute expertise to Avisa’s offerings.

"John’s track record of delivering results for multinationals, sovereigns and other global institutions aligns perfectly with Avisa’s focus on managing client risks and sensitive political, regulatory, public debate, legal, commercial and reputation issues,” said Avisa Partners US chief executive officer Eric Bovim.

Founded in France in 2010, Avisa expanded into the US last year and has added offices in Brussels, London and Berlin, as well as acquiring Paris-based risk management consultancy CEIS.
