Thomson joins Interel at a time of expansion for the agency, which has won business from e-commerce platform Alibaba in London, Beijing, Brussels, Paris, Berlin and Rome, among other clients.

Prior to this, Thomson was a director at The Whitehouse Consultancy and worked as parliamentary assistant to Theresa May and John Redwood when the Conservative Party was in opposition.

In May last year, he was elected to the Management Committee of the Association of Professional Political Consultants, an organisation he sits on alongside Interel’s Managing Partner, George McGregor.

Thomson said: “I’m excited to be joining the Interel team. At a time when politics is being shaped by the world around us, Interel’s integrated approach and global reach means it is ideally placed to help clients develop a strategic response to Brexit and overcome legislative or regulatory challenges in whatever marketplace they operate.”

McGregor said: “We’re delighted to welcome Carl to Interel. Carl has a fantastic reputation and is committed to providing the highest quality of service to his clients.

“We have ambitious plans for growth over the next few years and see this appointment as a way of strengthening our senior team and ensuring our clients receive the best possible advice in the post-Brexit landscape.”
