Edelman Global Advisory has named Helen Davies deputy COO and managing director for economic security.
Based in London, Davies will help clients navigate the increasingly complex network of governmental, trade and national security regulations.
She will report to Leigh Wedell, EGA COO, and work closely with Everett Eissenstat, chair of North America and global trade lead.
Davies has more than 30 years of corporate, agency and public sector experience.
She worked at Grey Group in London, Tokyo, Shanghai and Hong Kong; was marketing & communications manager for the City of Melbourne; served as London/Westminster campaign manager for the Liberal Democrats; ran her own strategic communications firm; and did a stint in the UK’s Foreign & Commonwealth Office.
Wedell said Davies will help drive EGA’s growth around the world, especially in the UK and European Union, where she will play a key role in enhancing the advisory’s capabilities.
Headquartered in Washington, EGA has more than 190 staffers.
