From September, Winn will use his breadth of experience to bolster Pagefield’s relationships across Westminster, the business world and the media.
Winn spent eight years at Sky News, where he led the team that secures big news-making interviews and ensures the right experts and commentators appear on the channel reacting to breaking stories.
He was also previously editor of Sky’s flagship Sunday morning political show Murnaghan. He was responsible for writing, researching and producing the show, as well as building and maintaining relationships around Westminster.
Winn cut his teeth in broadcast news at Channel 5, where he was a package producer, programme editor and writer for 5 News and helped launch a number of entertainment shows for the channel.
Oliver Foster, Pagefield’s CEO, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Giles to the Pagefield family. His energy, expertise and experience, which spans the world of media and politics, make him a great fit for our brilliant, growing team.”
Winn added: “I’m really excited to be joining Pagefield. It is an excellent agency with an impressive client roster and a great network. It’s a really exciting time for the business with lots of opportunities for growth – and I can’t wait to get stuck in.”
Winn is the latest in a series of senior appointments that include Dr Gerard Lyons, Debbie Wosskow and Sian Jarvis.
