Lansons boosts financial communications offering with appointment of Rollo Crichton-Stuart


Lansons is pleased to announce that it has recruited Rollo Crichton-Stuart as a board director to strengthen Lansons’ growing capability in the financial communications space.

Rollo joins Lansons from Bell Pottinger, where he was a senior member of the capital markets team supporting clients across the financial and business services, energy and technology sectors. At Bell Pottinger he also spent two years on secondment at Maersk Oil & Gas UK.

Rollo’s appointment further strengthens the senior team in an area where Lansons is seeing good levels of demand from existing and new clients for advice and support. Recent projects include the IPO of Metro Bank earlier this year. The growth of Lansons’ financial communications capability follows successful investments in other specialist disciplines, including Change & Employee Engagement and Public Affairs, which have significantly broadened and deepened the agency’s core offering.

Chief Executive Tony Langham said: “Clients want highly skilled multidisciplinary senior teams to help them navigate change and manage their reputation – and that’s what we’re delivering”.

Tom Baldock, Director of Financial Communications said: “Lansons is an ambitious agency with a great culture where high calibre practitioners can thrive. Rollo has all the attributes we look for in a senior hire and I’m looking forward to working with him as we expand our capital markets advisory work.”

Rollo Crichton-Stuart said: “I’m delighted to have joined Tom to expand Lansons’ financial communications capability. Lansons has a brilliant reputation for the quality of its work and it’s one of the most forward thinking agencies in the industry in terms of its culture and investing in the services clients really need.  I’m looking forward to starting.”
