MHP strengthens Capital Markets team with hire of Tulchan’s Peter Hewer

Peter joins from Tulchan Communications where he was a Partner and spent 15 years advising blue-chip clients on their financial and corporate communications. He has supported clients across a range of strategic and critical communications challenges including transactions, strategic change, issues management and crisis. In his new role, Peter will join the senior team in MHP’s Capital Markets division led by Oliver Hughes and Executive Chairman, Andrew Jaques.

MHP’s Capital Markets practice grew strongly last year, advising on more UK IPOs than any other financial communications agency, entering the top five UK PR agencies by number of M&A deals and winning new clients including The Restaurant Group, Speedy Hire and Draper Esprit.

His appointment comes in the same week that MHP’s Capital Markets team won the retained financial brief for Avon Rubber, the innovative technology group, which is listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange.

Commenting on the appointment, Oliver Hughes, Head of Capital Markets at MHP, said:

“Peter is a first-class operator and I am thrilled to have him join our team. The breadth of his experience in all aspects of financial communications will be invaluable as we continue to grow the business and advise our clients in an increasingly complex and fast changing environment.”

Peter Hewer said:

“I’m delighted to be joining MHP’s Capital Markets team at such an exciting time. There’s great momentum in the business and I’m looking forward to supporting Oliver to continue to grow the practice and deliver outstanding advisory services to clients.”
