Hanover hires Cameron Yorston as Associate Director - Hanover Communications


21 Feb 2019

Hanover is delighted to confirm the appointment of Cameron Yorston as an Associate Director in its London public affairs team.

Cameron brings with him over nine years’ experience in government across HM Treasury, BEIS and DCMS.

Most recently, he was Private Secretary to the Minister for Sport and Civil Society at DCMS, where he oversaw policy on sport, gambling, horse-racing, lotteries and the Office for Civil Society. During his time at HM Treasury, Cameron served as Head of Banking Competition, supporting challenger banks and overseeing policies to increase innovation, including fintech and open banking.

Cameron will work across Hanover’s growing client base in sport and leisure, media and financial services, advising on public affairs challenges and integrated communications campaigns.

Cameron said: “Hanover stands out in the market for its first-rate team and superb client base and I’m excited to be joining at a time of rapid growth. Having experienced government at the sharp end for nearly a decade, I am looking forward to helping steer Hanover’s clients through this period of unprecedented political risk. Working across departments has shown me there is a need for a fresh approach to public affairs that recognises the need for deep sector expertise and creative communications.”

Katie Blower, Managing Director of UK Advocacy, comments: “With his cross-government experience of policy making, Cameron will offer our clients a sophisticated analysis of the way Whitehall thinks and how this should shape their communications and commercial strategies.  He will be a huge asset to our clients and Hanover colleagues.”
