Grayling UK appoints new director of public affairs

Grayling UK adds further senior corporate affairs expertise with the appointment of Christine Quigley as a director in the award-winning public affairs team.

Quigley joins from SEC Newgate where she was most recently a director in the company’s Advocacy division, working with a range of clients across highly regulated sectors, developing and delivering strategic public affairs and advocacy campaigns.

Quigley, who will be based in Grayling’s London office, and will work across Grayling UK’s offices and wider global network, brings with her a breadth of sector expertise. Quigley previously worked as a political adviser to Labour on transport issues, as head of public affairs at The Rail Delivery Group and with a range of clients in the transport and energy sectors. She was recognised in this year’s “Women in Westminster: The 100”, complied by Politics Home, which recognises the most inspirational and influential women in Westminster.

Quigley’s appointment follows the recent appointment of Joey Jones, a move to further elevate the company’s strategic advisory and corporate affairs offer.

Commenting on the hire, Christine Quigley, says, “Grayling is on an impressive growth trajectory; I am excited to be working with some of the best talent in the industry and to contribute to the company’s continued growth. With an impressive roster of clients, I look forward to bringing the experience I have built around regulation to advise business across the board with how to navigate the post-Covid and post-Brexit landscape.”

Alan Boyd Hall, Grayling’s UK head of public affairs, says, “This is an exciting hire not only for the public affairs team, but for Grayling as a whole. Christine’s arrival builds upon our sector expertise within regulated industries and adds further senior firepower to our already successful public and corporate affairs offerings.”
