Whitmore joins Remarkable from Lexington Communications, where he was a director. He brings nearly a decade of public affairs experience to the role, and has advised clients across the housebuilding, retail, commercial property and energy sectors.

Whitmore said: “I’m delighted to be joining the UK’s largest public consultation and stakeholder communications agency. 2017 will be an exciting year for Remarkable Group following the agreement to acquire HardHat and the expansion of our Northern team.

“Remarkable Group’s fresh approach to public affairs and ability to use new technologies to unlock local support for our clients, enables us to de-risk the planning process and add real value to development projects large and small.”
