Kekst CNC Broadens its Senior Team in London

Lucia Hodgson, Dominic Reynolds and Lindsay Jepp Strengthen Key Areas of Growth for the Firm

London, 8 April 2021 – Kekst CNC, a leading global strategic communications consultancy, announced today that it has further strengthened its senior team, with the appointment of three experienced consultants in its London office.

Lucia Hodgson joins Kekst CNC from the UK Government’s Ministry of Defence, where she was a Special Adviser. Lucia has extensive experience in government communications and public affairs, having previously worked as deputy press secretary at No. 10 Downing Street, as special adviser to the Leader of the Commons, and as a speechwriter for various UK government departments. She joins the firm during a period of rapid growth for its public affairs team as global organisations navigate the changing political landscape in the UK post-Brexit.

Dominic Reynolds joins Kekst CNC from KPMG, where he was a Senior Manager of Strategic Communications, focussing on senior leadership support, narrative development, content creation and innovation communications. Prior to this, Dominic gained significant experience as a broadcast journalist working both in front and behind the camera at ITN, CNN, Sky News and ITV in London.

Lindsay Jepp will join Kekst CNC in May from Weber Shandwick, where she was the UK lead for the EMEA energy practice. As an Associate Director, Lindsay worked with energy clients on integrated media, organisational communications, and crisis mandates. Prior to this, she worked as a communications advisor at Dana Petroleum in Aberdeen. She will support Kekst CNC’s client base of global energy firms focusing on the energy transition, net-zero transformation and employer reputation.

In addition to the three senior hires, Kekst CNC’s London office has also welcomed eight additional staff members since the beginning of 2021, reflecting the ongoing growth of the firm.

Lucia, Dominic and Lindsay bring new experiences, perspectives and ideas to our firm and our clients, and we are very pleased to welcome them on board. It has been a year without precedent for organisations globally, and a time when effective communication across a broad stakeholder group has never been more important. These hires, as well as the others we have made this year, reflect our own growth as well as our clients’ priorities, in key areas such as media relations, public affairs and employee communications.
