Thiele-Long joins Infinite Global from global law firm King & Wood Mallesons, having previously been a consultant at Pagefield Communications. He has more than seven years experience as a criminal and regulatory barrister.

Thiele-Long also has experience across a broad range of sectors and jurisdictions, advising a variety of clients on proactive corporate and consumer public relations, thought leadership campaigns and reputation and issues management.

Jamie Diaferia, Infinite Global CEO, said: “Benjamin is a great asset to our team in London and an excellent resource for our many international clients. He is our first senior hire since we rebranded from Infinite Spada to Infinite Global in the summer.”

Thiele-Long also has, from his time as a criminal and regulatory barrister,  gained extensive experience of crisis communications work, including media management and communications during internal investigations, representing companies on the scene at dawn raids, and actions and liabilities concerning white-collar crime and regulatory investigations.

Infinite Global was formed by the 2014 merger of US-based Infinite PR and UK-based Spada and has more than 45 consultants in offices in New York, San Francisco, Research Triangle and London.
