Former Business Committee chairman Iain Wright joins Hume Brophy

Iain Wright, the former UK government minister and Labour party heavyweight, has joined Hume Brophy as a senior adviser.

He joins the consultancy’s international Brexit unit and will provide clients with insights regarding their corporate strategy, reputation and positioning.

Wright was chairman of the House of Commons Select Committee for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy for two years, before stepping down as an MP in June 2017.

Under his chairmanship, the select committee conducted inquiries into the digital economy, corporate governance, the business impacts of Brexit, the future world of work and rights of workers.

Robert Condon, managing director of Hume Brophy Public and Corporate Affairs, said: “Iain is acknowledged as the most effective and formidable committee chair in Westminster in recent years, leading the committee to new heights and affecting real change.”

He continued: “He has a wide network in business, media and public affairs. I can’t think of anyone else I would prefer to have in my corner at this critical time for business in the UK.”

Iain Wright added: “I’m really proud and delighted to be joining Robert and the Hume Brophy team. I wouldn’t wish simply to work with any firm, but the team is superb – smart, effective and engaging.”
