The Whitehouse Consultancy has announced a series of promotions and appointments following a sustained period of growth that has also seen the agency move to new offices in London Bridge.

Whitehouse Consultancy managing director Helen Munro has announced the promotion of Sam Blainey to Senior Political Consultant and Robert Ede to Political Consultant. Rhiannon Sanders has also been appointed as a Research Executive having completed an internship with the Whitehouse team. John Punter, previously a public affairs manager at Leonard Cheshire Disability, joined The Whitehouse Consultancy as an Associate Director last month.

Blainey joined The Whitehouse Consultancy as an Associate Consultant in 2010, working as part of the agency’s specialist European team. He had previously worked for former Labour MP Andrew Dismore. Ede joined The Whitehouse Consultancy in 2014 as part of its energy and environment team, having worked for a Conservative MP.

Sanders previously worked in the office of Jonathan Djanogly and interned with Conservative think tank Bright Blue.

Helen Munro, Managing Director of The Whitehouse Consultancy, said:

“We’re delighted to welcome John to the team, to welcome Rhiannon as a permanent team member, and to recognise the hard work and commitment of Rob and Sam.

“This is an exciting time for The Whitehouse Consultancy. We have grown our client base during the course of the year, and are continually reinvesting in the business and the team. We look forward to a successful remainder of 2015 in our new offices, and to what we expect will be an interesting next year for British politics.”
