Montfort Communications to advise Panmure Gordon

Investment bank Panmure Gordon has appointed Montfort Communications as its comms adviser following a competitive pitch.

The strategic comms agency will work closely with the bank’s senior management to develop and implement an ongoing external comms programme. Its account team will be led by founding partner Gay Collins.

The appointment comes as Panmure expands its service offering under new chief executive Ian Axe.

Collins said: “Panmure Gordon has a great heritage and is at a fascinating stage in its development. Since going private, the business has embarked on a significant programme of growth and we are only at the beginning of what is sure to be an exciting road ahead.

“We look forward to helping Panmure Gordon articulate the leadership team’s compelling new vision.”

Juliana Wheeler, head of marketing and communications at Panmure Gordon, added: “The Panmure Gordon team is delighted to appoint Montfort. We were impressed by Montfort’s grasp of our new vision as well as its understanding of the opportunities and challenges our business faces.

“We look forward to working with the Montfort team as we build our business.”
