Shell Oil veteran Alex Burnett has joined Brunswick Group’s business & society practice to focus on climate change.

During his 13-year stint at the oil giant, Burnett designed and launched its “powering progress” campaign to promote its effort to transition to net-zero emissions.

He served as group corporate & reputation manager and led a unit handling communications policies dealing with environmental, social and governance issues.

Prior to Shell, Burnett was senior advisor for communications & PA at Toyota Europe, consultant at Luther Pendragon shop and researcher for former UK prime minister David Cameron.

Brunswick CEO Neal Wolin expects Burnett’s “deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing organizations in the transition to net-zero will be extremely valuable to our clients.”
