We are delighted to announce the appointment of Lynda Waltho, our new Public Affairs Director.
Welcome to our growing team.
Prior to HERA Lynda was the Member of Parliament for Stourbridge in the last Labour government and served as a Regional Minister. She was also a Parliamentary Private Secretary in the Northern Ireland Office, the Department of Justice and the Department of Health.
Within the private sector, Lynda held senior roles as Director of Communications for the Green Bus Company and until recently, the Midlands Regional Director for the Confederation of Passenger Transport.
Welcoming Lynda, Founder and Managing Director Anna Geffert said: “I’m thrilled to welcome Lynda to our growing HERA team – she brings with her a wealth of political, Parliamentary and commercial experience, making her ideally suited to advise and represent our clients.
“With the changing political, economic and cultural landscape, it has never been more important to engage with both elected and official representatives. Lynda’s expertise will ensure that our clients are represented at the very highest level. She can leverage on the work we are already doing and also bring insights to ensure clients are privy to what’s going to be the focus for next year, Brexit and Covid being prime examples.”
On her appointment, Lynda commented: “The current political situation and fall out from coronavirus regulations, presents challenges but also opportunities for many businesses. I am looking forward to working with Anna and her dynamic agency colleagues as well as engaging with authorities and politicians at all levels to forge new working relationships and promote the interests of HERA’s clients.”
