Publicis Resolute has announced the appointment of Nick Hoile to drive Government Affairs function, whilst Jake Davis has been hired to strengthen the agency’s senior PR team.

Nick Hoile has been head-hunted for the newly created role of director, Government Affairs, joining from MHP Communications, and will be focusing on Global and European policy and politics.

“When medicine advances, healthcare systems need to adapt,” comments Nick, “but without input from expert stakeholders, policymakers can be too slow to recognise the need for change – and the opportunities to realise the benefits of scientific breakthroughs. I am looking forward to working with Publicis Resolute, and across the Publicis Health network, to build a government affairs practice that is grounded in a strong understanding of policy and politics, informed by deep scientific insight, and powered by award-winning creativity.”

The company has also announced the additional appointment of Jake Davis as director. Jake has 15 years’ experience working on global, European and UK communications accounts, and will be leading established and new accounts at Publicis Resolute. He has previously worked at Havas Just::, Cohn & Wolfe and Edelman, and will report into Ann Hughes, PR Business Unit Director.
