Interdealer broker Tullett Prebon has appointed Rebecca Shelley as global head of corporate affairs.
Shelley, who joins the firm on September 1, will report directly to CEO John Phizackerley, and will become a member of the firm’s Global Executive Committee.
Shelley’s previous roles include corporate affairs director at Tesco, partner at Brunswick and group communications director at Prudential.
She said: “This is a excellent time to be joining John Phizackerley and his team. With the creation of TP ICAP on the horizon, I will be looking to build a strong, multi-faceted, communications function, as befits a company of its ambition, and to grow and develop the corporate profile.”
The appointment comes ahead of the completion of Tullett Prebon’s acquisition of ICAP later this year. Shelley will be responsible for the integration of the businesses’ comms and marketing teams.
Phizackerley added: “I am delighted to welcome Rebecca to Tullett Prebon and, in due course, to TP ICAP. We will be working extremely closely together as I further develop the TP ICAP corporate profile and engage with all of our stakeholders in the UK and around the world. Rebecca’s PR, IR and public affairs experience is very broad and deep and she will be a most valuable addition to my team.”
