Henry specialises in providing public affairs support and advice to key Hanover clients in the technology sector. He has policy expertise in digital regulation, data protection and online advertising and has supported clients including Facebook, Cisco and the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB) through complex regulatory challenges such as the Online Safety Bill, EU data adequacy agreement and Online Advertising Programme.
Prior to joining Hanover in 2019, Henry worked for Nigel Huddleston MP in his Parliamentary office for three years, closely supporting him in his roles on the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Select Committee and as Parliamentary Private Secretary to the DCMS Secretary of State. In this role, Henry wrote a guide for MPs on how to adapt their data practices to be compliant with new regulations, to coincide with the introduction of GDPR in 2018. Alongside this, he held a Parliamentary meeting alongside then-Digital Minister Margot James to answer MPs’ questions on what GDPR would mean for them. Henry also worked closely with Huddleston around the Digital Economy Act 2017, assisting in gathering backbench votes for the legislation.
At Hanover, Henry has provided bespoke services to clients including presentations on data protection regulations and Executive training for Select Committee appearances in Parliament.
