Clark will lead H+K London’s 20-strong FPS team, providing strategic communications counsel to clients. Clark has led many integrated communications campaigns across financial and professional services clients. He is also an experienced crisis and issues consultant and has provided executive coaching and training for business leaders across many industries.

“This is an extraordinary moment for financial and professional services brands – particularly those that will play a crucial role in helping to repair the UK and global economies and in helping people to rebuild their lives and businesses. The team at H+K has the right blend of skills and experience to help those brands in that job. I’m excited to be joining this team to help to shape that recovery.”

He brings deep sector expertise at a crucial moment for the development of our Financial + Professional Services team and for clients across the sector in the UK and internationally. The combination of a pandemic and Brexit means the financial services industry will need to communicate particularly well to protect reputation and mitigate risks across their businesses and Nick is very well placed to do that.”
