Grayling reinforces its EU Public Affairs Team with three new hires

Grayling has announced the appointment of Charles Feld as the new Director and Head of its EU Energy & Environment Practice in Brussels. New Manager Dominik Flikweert and Senior Consultant Otto Ilveskero also joined this month to further reinforce the team’s sustainability credentials.

Charles joins Grayling from the leading worldwide transportation and shipping group CMA CGM, where he represented the company’s European advocacy strategy. Previously, Charles worked in the European Parliament as political adviser to French MEP Philippe Juvin. His professional experience also covers the European Commission and the External Action Service.

Grayling Brussels has further reinforced its EU Energy & Environment Policy Practice with two additional appointments: Manager Dominik Flikweert, joining from LightingEurope with an extensive background in eco-design and energy efficiency and Otto Ilveskero, who has specialist expertise in green finance, renewable energy, and green technologies.

Russell Patten, CEO of Grayling in Belgium, said: “Charles, Dominik and Otto’s appointments further strengthen our already considerable expertise in the field of sustainability – including energy, transport and climate policy, a growing area of focus for us. Their experience and knowledge of specialist policy will bring added value to our clients’ businesses.”

Charles Feld added: “It is an exciting moment to join the Grayling Brussels team in a year that will be key for Europe’s global climate leadership, ahead of the Fit for 55 announcements and COP26. An increasing number of organisations are trying to get their voice heard on the green transition and we have lined-up the perfect team of experts to advise and guide them.”
