• Highly-experienced investigative journalist becomes new Communications Director
  • Nick Ryan has over 30 years media, digital and comms/campaigns experience

We’re excited to announce that our longstanding communications advisor, Nick Ryan, has agreed to become our new Director of Communications.

Nick is a highly-experienced journalist and communications expert, with extensive digital and campaigning experience.

He will be responsible for all of our strategic communications and marketing outputs, as well as feeding into the important conversations ahead for MKS.

Martin Kenney said:

“Many will already know Nick and his long association with our firm. As a journalist, and starting in 1998, he has written extensively about our work, prior to becoming a part-time communications consultant and advisor to MKS a decade ago.

“Nick brings with him a 30+ year background in both the media and communications spheres, including as communications director for busy campaigning organisations, and has already helped drive a great deal of positive attention our way.”

Nick added:

“This is a great role and great challenge. I’m looking forward to supporting MKS more substantially as the firm moves into its next phase of transformation and growth – I’d like to thank Martin and the team for offering such an opportunity.”
