The account team will be led by Yellow Jersey director, Dominic Barretto, who will be supported by consultant, Harriet Jackson.

Barretto said: “We are pleased to be representing a strong management team and brand. Our initial role will be to clarify the investment case and key messaging for City audiences – followed in swift succession with doing what we do best, media relations.

“Our agency has grown from a one-man shop in 2009 to 15 consultants, 50 clients and two offices. We are pleased to be representing companies who see value in our unusual approach to financial PR.”

COPL, headquartered in Calgary, Canada, is focused in Sub-Saharan Africa. It trades on the London Stock Exchange and on the TSX Venture Exchange (a Canadian stock exchange headquartered in Calgary).

The oil and gas company has ongoing operations in Liberia and Nigeria.
