Emma Kane, CEO of Redleaf Communications, said: “Guy’s expertise and thorough knowledge of the media will further strengthen our existing firepower in building brands and protecting reputations.

Smith added: “This is a terrific opportunity to work with some of the best in the communications industry. My role will be to help build the corporate/media relations team to support the Capital Markets, Property, and Professional & Financial Services divisions. The collaborative ethos, creative atmosphere and very entrepreneurial spirit were the biggest attractions in joining Redleaf.”
