Sir Alan Parker, friend to Gordon Brown and the Camerons, chairs the 1,000-strong private partnership and comms firm, which has 24 offices in 14 countries. The firm has more than a third of the FTSE 100 companies as clients, and advises the likes of BP and Burberry, as well as some of the world’s wealthiest families on a range of reputation issues. Having managed a rock band and manned an oil rig in his early days, Parker was brought into the financial PR world by his father, then a fledgling industry riding the wave of the takeover boom in 1981. He was knighted in 2014 for his services to business and philanthropy, and was appointed chair of Save The Children International in early 2016.
