Prosek appoints Managing Director in London
Prosek Partners, an integrated marketing and communications firm, has appointed Phil Walters as a Managing Director in the firm's London office.
Prior to joining Prosek, Walters spent 14 years at Finsbury Glover Hering, where he was a Managing Director advising a range of domestic and international clients on capital markets communications including M&A, shareholder activism, capital raising, crisis and issues management, corporate communications, reputation recovery and investor relations.
"Phil adds significant depth to our team in London," says Jennifer Prosek, founder and Managing Partner at Prosek. "Our private equity and special situations growth has been explosive, and Phil will greatly strengthen our capabilities in these areas. He also has the entrepreneurial spirit we love at Prosek.”
Walters' addition comes shortly after Prosek's appointment of Andrew Dowler, former Blackstone Chief Communications Officer in Europe, as a senior advisor. Last month, the firm was named Corporate/Financial Agency of the Year by PRovoke Media, as well as Best PR & Communications Firm at the inaugural Institutional Asset Manager Awards 2021.
"I'm looking forward to helping Prosek build out its fast-growing London office," says Walters. "The firm’s clients in the financial sector are hugely impressive and its private equity business is creating strong growth in special situations in London. I'm excited to help drive the growth of this offering."
Walters began his career in politics. He is a graduate of Durham University.
