Victoria Dean has recently re-joined Portland to take over the agency in late 2022. She is a career diplomat, having spent nearly two decades in the British Diplomatic Service, with roles in London, Paris, Brussels, Washington DC and the Eastern Caribbean, where she was High Commissioner until 2016. She then spent three years as a Partner at Portland in our corporate offering, and then went in-house to Google as the Global Public Policy Director.
Now back in agency, leading a 300 strong team of strategic comms and public affairs professionals across London, Doha, Singapore, Nairobi, Paris, Berlin and Brussels. The nexus of politics, policy and media and where those coincide with business strategy is what makes her tick professionally.
