Tim Jotischky, Divisional Managing Director, Reputation, at The PHA Group, added: “I am delighted Robin is joining the team and I am very much looking forward to working with him. We have seen a big increase in demand for our training and advisory services and our clients will benefit from his extensive and very recent media experience. As a former journalist myself, I know he will bring great value to our client work and, in an election year, his Westminster experience will provide them with great insight”.
