ENGINE MHP makes senior hire as Brand + Reputation team experiences strong growth

ENGINE MHP today announces a senior appointment to its Brand + Reputation team with Hannah Walsh joining as Director, following a period of rapid growth.

Hannah’s appointment comes on the back of a successful eighteen months for the team since it was formed at the end of 2019 when it brought together Engine MHP’s existing consumer and corporate teams to deliver an integrated offer.

During the last year the team has been appointed to several new mandates from E.ON, Samsung, HelloFresh, IWG, Global Roundtable for Sustainable Brief (GRSB) and Wine Drinkers UK as well as growing existing briefs with clients including TalkTalk.

Engine MHP’s Brand + Reputation team was set up with the appointment of Rachel Bower in September 2019 and blends corporate and consumer expertise by combining corporate advisers, brand strategists, ex journalists and campaigning experts to help clients navigate an increasingly complex stakeholder environment.

Hannah joins the agency from ThreeSixty where she was Head of Reputation, working on clients including Compare the Market, De Beers, gohenry, Avanti Communications and Doctor Martens. Prior to this Hannah worked as an issues-management and reputation expert at H&K Strategies, working with clients including Shell, Intel, GSK, Givaudan, P&G, Mondelez and Associated British Foods.

Rachel Bower, ENGINE MHP’s Head of Brand + Reputation, said:

“I’m delighted that Hannah has joined our team at such an exciting time. She brings with her a wealth of experience and a proven track record of advising clients with complex reputation challenges and leading integrated campaigns that reach consumers, business leaders and policy makers. Hannah’s appointment comes on the back of a number of hires across other levels in 2020 that support and accelerate our growth.”

Commenting on her new role, Hannah Walsh, Director said:

“The opportunity to join such an impressive team is a real privilege, given its breadth of expertise, disruptive approach and original offer. I look forward to bringing my integrated and cross-sector strategic communications experience to the table, working closely with the incredibly talented MHP clients and colleagues.”
