Number 10 Special Advisor joins MHP’s Public Affairs team

Conservative staffer Nick Vaughan has joined MHP’s 20-strong Public Affairs team – moving from 10 Downing Street, where he was a Special Adviser.

Nick Vaughan brings more than a decade’s public affairs experience having previously headed up government relations at national infrastructure provider Openreach, and more recently The Football Association.

He is the second senior Conservative to join us, following last year’s appointment of Amy Fisher who was formerly a Home Office Special Adviser and the Party’s Communications Director.

Commenting on his appointment, Nick said:

“I’m delighted to be joining MHP’s fast-growing public affairs team. James and Jamie are building a team and proposition that is industry leading and I’m looking forward to playing my part in its continued development.”

James Gurling, Joint Head of Public Affairs at MHP said:

“The recovery from COVID-19 and experience of the lockdown will transform the economic and political environment – and so the role of public affairs has rarely been more important for businesses.

“Nick’s knowledge of the inner working of government, coupled with his experience across both infrastructure and consumer culture businesses, make him ideally placed to help MHP’s clients as they adjust to the ‘new normal’, and we’re delighted he’s joined our team.
