Hoare joins the agency from a client director role at Hudson Sandler, where she advised listed businesses, with a particular focus on leisure, retail, consumer and the industrial goods sector.

Hoare said: “The team at Houston offers something truly unique in the market. Its highly creative approach coupled with a track record of delivering high profile, shareable brand campaigns is impressive, and I’m incredibly excited about the imaginative and fully integrated approach we can offer to companies looking to transform their capital and corporate market communications.”

Hamish Thompson, managing director at Houston PR, added: “I’m delighted that Kate has joined Houston. She has a great reputation in the City and an impressive track record. She also shares my view that capital markets communications tend to be a bit magnolia and formulaic. We’ll see about that.”
