Matt Gallagher

Invariant has hired Matt Gallagher, who was executive VP in BCW’s North American corporate practice, to lead its strategic communications and public affairs unit.

At BCW, Gallagher handled energy, sustainability, transportation and crisis clients.

He joined the WPP unit after a ten-year run at APCO Worldwide, where Gallagher headed the midwest and west regions.

Gallagher also served as APCO’s North American energy and sustainability practice lead. He counseled utilities, energy companies, tech clients and financial services institutions.

Prior to APCO, Gallagher was a VP at Cerrell Assocs.

“Matt is exactly the kind of advisor today’s CEO needs to have in their corner,” said Invariant founder/CEO Heather Podesta. “We are excited to have him on board as our communications team continues to expand.”
