Strategic comms consultancy Madano has brought in Edelman’s Michael Zdanowski as a director and head of energy.

Michael Zdanowski

Zdanowski  was UK energy lead at Edelman, where he played a strong role in developing the firm’s UK and European energy business.

Before Edelman, he worked for Hill+Knowlton Strategies in London and Moscow, focusing on major reputational issues for energy, mining and industrial companies.

During his time at H+K, he was also seconded to Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and Egypt.

In his new role at Madano, Zdanowski will oversee a specialist energy practice that was first formed in 2013, with clients focused on renewables, nuclear and innovative energy technologies.

Michael Evans, managing partner of Madano, said: “We continue to expand the talent across our business and build out what is already a leading energy practice.

“By combining tailored communications expertise with data-driven insights alongside creative and digital, we can offer integrated solutions delivered by talented people who truly understand our clients’ needs.”

Zdanowski added: “I’m thrilled to be joining Madano which has one of the most impressive teams in the market dedicated to the energy sector. The expertise in the team is second to none and I look forward to leading the team as the energy market rapidly transitions to a low-carbon future.

“As new energy technologies shape and disrupt the market, the communications required to support these changes will be as important as the initiatives themselves.”
