Joe Mitton, former adviser to the London Mayor, is joining the top team at PLMR, the London-based agency specialising in political lobbying and media relations.
Mitton joins from the Mayor’s office where he acted as special adviser for business and science until the recent mayoral elections. He will join PLMR as a senior consultant in London and begins his new role next week.
“I am delighted to be joining the PLMR team. It is a firm that understands London’s economy and government like no other. PLMR is the best partner for high-growth tech, science, infrastructure and City firms and I am looking forward to working with all their clients, existing and new, to grab the opportunities in London and beyond,” said Mitton.
Before taking up his position as special adviser at the office of the mayor of London, Mitton worked in the Australian Civil Service. He went on to be appointed to the Australian High Commission in London, where he represented the Australian government on trade and regulatory issues in the UK and the European Commission.
Kevin Craig, managing director at PLMR, added: “We are very excited to welcome Joe to PLMR. He brings a wealth of relevant experience to our current clients and he has big ambitions to help us widen our reach in emerging sectors.”
