LONDON — FleishmanHillard has boosted its senior crisis communications capabilities with the appointment of a new director to its team in London.

Nic Daley joins from Hill+Knowlton Strategies, where he was a senior member of the global issues and crisis team for more than three years, managing high-profile court cases, cyber-attacks on FTSE companies, and sensitive reputational challenges in the UK and globally. Daley was previously an associate director at Garnett Keeler Public Relations, 

The appointment comes in the wake of significant growth in crisis communications for the agency, particularly around cyber response – where FleishmanHillard is on several insurer and legal panels – and advising clients on reputation and communication in the aftermath of ransomware attacks.

Daley will work alongside Judith Moore, senior partner and EMEA crisis lead, who said: “Nic has an impressive track record in crisis comms, both in terms of preparation and response, advising clients on a broad range of reputational challenges from ransomware incidents to crises of culture and high-profile court cases. I am delighted he has joined FleishmanHillard and I’m sure he will be a huge asset to the team.”
