Financial communications specialist Louise Mason has joined Portland as a Partner. Building on Portland’s existing work in the field, Louise will bring substantial experience of financial communications advice on M&A transactions including IPOs, secondary capital raisings, takeovers and privatisations as well as financial calendar and business strategy communications.
Louise commented on her appointment:
“I feel very privileged to join Portland at such an exciting and ambitious time in its growth. Financial communications has changed dramatically over the last decade and Portland is well placed to help clients develop an integrated approach to their financial and corporate communications and negotiate the opportunities and pitfalls of digital and social media.”
Louise began her financial communication career with London based Bankside Consultants, before heading the natural resources team at Walbrook PR and spending the last near three years with Buchanan.
Oliver Pauley, UK Managing Director said:
“2014 was a year of extraordinary growth for Portland and I am delighted to welcome Louise to the team. She has a wealth of transactional and financial PR/ IR experience built over 10 years in financial communications in the City. Her networks and reputation are a great addition to Portland.”
