Property giant Grosvenor Britain and Ireland has appointed Rachel Garstang as head of media relations.

Garstang will take up the role later this month, joining the company’s recently expanded comms team. She joins from financial and professional services group Smith and Williamson, where she was head of content and media relations.

She has over 13 years’ experience in corporate comms, with her previous roles encompassing vice president, Real Estate at FTI Consulting and head of comms, EMEA at global real estate advisor CBRE.

Rob Fox, director of corporate communications, said: “It is wonderful to have Rachel on board. The UK business is at an important moment. We’ve substantial ambitions to evolve our London estate at the heart of the West End, create a new neighbourhood in Bermondsey and build more homes outside the capital.

“We’ll need to continue to convey our aspirations to a wider audience and open ourselves up to public opinion. Rachel rounds out a renewed team and will help drive those efforts.”
