Mark Sweeney, who worked in the government of former UK prime minister Boris Johnson, will join Brunswick Group as a partner on Dec. 5.

He will handle crisis management, public affairs and reputation matters.

As director general in the cabinet secretariat, Sweeney advised Johnson on economic, domestic policy issues and the legislative agenda.

Earlier, Sweeney was director general for policy, communications and analysis at the Ministry of Justice and a director at Ofcom, the independent telecom and broadcast regulator.

He also worked for a number of years as the political director in the Northern Ireland Office on the implementation of the Good Friday Agreement.

Brunswick chief Neal Wolin said Sweeney’s extensive experience in government will help clients as they wrestle with critical issues across the financial, political and social landscapes.
