Burson-Marsteller has hired Mike Love as UK chairman.
In his new role at B-M, Love will provide expert counsel to the firm’s clients, will work across all practices on pitches and new business, will support professional team development, and will play a key role with B-M’s industry-leading thought leadership offerings.
Love’s past roles have focused on driving business growth, developing brands, managing high profile crises and supporting three global business transformation and turnaround challenges. He has acted as an independent freelance consultant since leaving his last in-house role with G4S in March 2012 where he created a new strategic communications function for their global Cash Solutions business ahead of a corporate restructuring.
Love joins B-M on 1 October.
