Barndoor Strategy, the public affairs and strategy consultancy fronted by former MRM Director and Financial Conduct Authority Senior Associate Havard Hughes and ex-Deputy Mayor of London Roger Evans have announced that David Spencer, a former aide to David Davis and experienced public affairs consultant, is joining the business as their new Managing Director.

Spencer, who will also become a director of the company, has been working in south-east Asia following spells consulting with a couple of London-based agencies, most recently the Whitehouse Consultancy.

The new appointment coincides with a corporate strategic shift for Barndoor Strategy who will be focusing on delivering high-quality, value for money strategic support and regulatory guidance to clients primarily across the financial, tech, and trade sectors.

Speaking about their latest hire, Barndoor Strategy CEO Havard Hughes commented:

“David brings a wealth of industry experience as well as vital international experience.  As Managing Director his leadership skills will be put to good use building the firm.  As a boutique agency specialising in financial services, tech and trade, David has the skills to help Barndoor Strategy reach the next level in a new post-Brexit environment.”

Commenting on his new role, David Spencer said:

“I am hugely excited about working with the Barndoor Strategy team and helping this young agency to grow.  We already have a talented and hungry team of consultants on board and the future for Barndoor Strategy is extremely bright.

“Brexit promises to bring significant opportunities to domestic and international companies working in the UK, not least in the finance and tech sectors. Barndoor Strategy is extremely well placed to help them maximise these opportunities.”
