Murray supported Metro Bank during its £400m capital raise, and successful listing on the London Stock Exchange last year (2016).

Prior to joining Metro Bank in 2015, Murray worked for global design consultancy Ove Arup, where he spent nine years working in the UK and East Asia as head of government affairs.

Robert Condon, MD of public and corporate affairs at Hume Brophy UK, said: “For ten years, Pete worked around the world protecting corporate reputations, before returning to build one of Britain’s best brands.

“Together with Chris Martin, our director of public affairs, and our senior advisor Esther McVey, Pete is another heavy-weight appointment, and strengthens our ability to offer clients seamless corporate and public affairs support.”

Murray said: “After the excitement of taking a start-up through an IPO, I wanted to work for another fast-growing, challenger brand. That’s why I’m delighted to join Hume Brophy. I’ve been recommending them for years as “the best agency you’ve probably never heard of” – more dynamic and more creative than the old, established players – and a lot more willing to pull out all the stops to deliver for their clients.”
