Aspectus PR has appointed experienced communications professional, Harry Huskisson, as account manager for its financial services PR practice.
Huskisson joins Aspectus from the City of London Corporation where he was corporate affairs officer and will be supporting key financial services clients for Aspectus, including Fidessa, FIG and Milestone Group.
Working closely with stakeholders from the political and City business community, Huskisson played a central role in managing the City of London Corporation’s Business Contact programme for the elected Policy Chairman. He also worked across the public affairs brief developing and maintaining relationships with key stakeholders from across the Government and wider political spectrum. In addition, he had responsibility for leading on the City of London Corporation’s social media brief, establishing and successfully developing this area of the Corporation’s overall communications strategy.
“Having thoroughly enjoyed my time at the City of London Corporation and the many fantastic experiences it provided, Aspectus presents me with a fresh opportunity to advance my career in the exciting and ever growing communications world,” says Huskisson. “This is a challenge I have long wished to pursue and the culture of innovation and success at Aspectus is something I cannot wait to be a part of.”
Aspectus PR’s financial services practice has announced a number of new clients and expanded recently to include banking, capital markets, insurance, alternative investments and global payments to better reflect the practice it has become. The team delivers a wide range of marketing and communications services, from branding and positioning to content production, media relations and general communications and marketing counsel.
