(businesspress24) - LONDON – Avonhurst today announced that that it is enhancing its Political Strategy Services offering with the hire of four new Senior Advisors: Lord (Gavin) Barwell; Sean West; General, the Lord (Nick) Houghton; and Andrew Dowler. They will be joining Head of Global Political Strategy, Tina Fordham, who joined the firm in January 2020 from Citigroup, where she was managing director and chief political analyst. Launched in 2019, Avonhurst is a political risk and legal advisory firm dedicated to representing sophisticated capital.

Lord Barwell served as Chief of Staff to the Prime Minister from June 2017 to July 2019. Before that, he was the Member of Parliament for Croydon Central, and Minister of State for Housing and Planning and Minister for London at the Department for Communities and Local Government.

West is co-founder of ‘knowledge economy’ technology company ProfeTech and was previously at prominent global affairs research, advisory and consulting firm Eurasia Group, where he was the founding CEO of the firm’s innovation business and drove global expansion as Deputy CEO of the firm.

Lord Houghton was formerly the UK’s Chief of Defence Staff and is now a crossbench Peer in the House of Lords, a strategic advisor to multi-national corporates and Constable of The Tower of London.

Dowler previously worked for Blackstone, the largest alternative assets investment firm in the world as a Managing Director responsible for the public positioning of the firm and its investment platforms across Europe, including government relations.

Jonathan Bloom, Chief Executive of Avonhurst, comments:
“In a rapidly changing and increasingly uncertain political landscape, our sophisticated capital client base is seeking guidance in this area now more than ever. The arrival of four such senior hires complements our already strong Political Strategy Services offering, bringing unparalleled expertise and insight.

“They will work alongside Head of Global Political Strategy, Tina Fordham and a team of associates across our political and legal functions. This seamless approach reflects our commitment to meeting the needs of our clients across legal, legislative and political advisory, and capital services.”
