Her deep expertise in devising and implementing strategic communications programmes internationally at scale, combined with her knowledge of the tech sector will be of huge benefit to us and our clients,” said Teneo UK CEO Nick Claydon. “But more than that, Amanda brings with her a very real understanding of the pressures and challenges facing our clients today. Her perspective will be invaluable as we partner with our clients to help them manage and protect their reputation.”
