Strategic comms consultancy Hudson Sandler has appointed Andrew Leach as a partner.
Leach rejoins the business after spending five years at MHP Communications as managing director, after fulfilling the same role at Hudson Sandler.
Prior to his PR roles, Leach was a specialist business journalist who covered the City’s “Big Bang” in the 1980s through to the 2008 financial crisis. He is a former associate city editor of The Mail on Sunday’s finance section.
Andrew Hayes, managing partner of Hudson Sandler, said: “We are delighted Andrew has rejoined us. He is a highly respected operator who shares our values of collaboration and long-term relationships.
“As a senior journalist he enjoyed widespread respect as one of the best in the business and he will be an excellent addition to our growing partnership.”
Leach added: “Hudson Sandler has evolved significantly over the past five years with a broader offering and established, market-leading franchises. The familiar culture of innovation, excellence and collaboration means it is very much like coming home and I am excited by the growth opportunities.”
