Pagefield welcomes raft of senior advisors

Pagefield, which specialises in PR, reputation management, campaigning and public affairs, has made several additions to its team of senior advisors.

Dr Gerard Lyons

The firm welcomes Dr Gerard Lyons, Debbie Wosskow OBE, Nikki Page and Sian Jarvis CB.

Lyons spent three years as Boris Johnson’s economic advisor when he was Mayor of London. Prior to this he spent 25 years in the city, most recently as chief economist and head of global research at Standard Chartered Bank.

Wosskow, CEO and founder of Love Home Swap, established and chaired the government-backed sharing economy trade body SEUK. She is also on the Mayor’s Business Advisory Board and is the co-founder and chair of AllBright, an investment fund for female entrepreneurs.

Jarvis has a special interest in health affairs. She was previously corporate affairs director at Asda, leading its health strategy, and was the director general for communications at the Department of Health for 12 years. Before that she was political correspondent on ITV breakfast television, and a BBC journalist.

In addition to 10 years as a parliamentary chief of staff, Page’s wider background is in strategic marketing, and previous roles include chair of Westminster housing, and ambassador at Large for Variety, the children’s charity.

She was also previously head of PR for Europe Middle East & Africa at Visa International.

The new advisors join Sir Christopher Meyer KCMG, Dianne Thompson DBE, Teresa Graham CBE, Sir Mike Lockett KCVO, Sir Peter Middleton GCB, Lady Catherine Meyer CBE, Dame Sue Tinson DBE, Alison Hastings and Alan Pascoe MBE, who also sit on the Pagefield board.

Meyer said: “From the gig economy to Brexit, and from fundraising expertise to regulatory affairs specialists, these new members of the team mean we call as never before upon experts in their respective fields and deliver on our fundamental promise to understand our clients’ worlds.”

Pagefield announced its first chief executive Oliver Foster in January 2017.
