London - Brackendale Consulting Ltd, the European private equity marketing, communications and design agency, has rebranded and appointed Guy Waller, ex-Partners Group, as Senior Advisor.  Laura Shelley and Cameron Glenister have also joined the firm as PR Associates.

Today’s relaunch of the company organises Brackendale into four key sectors of activity: Investor Marketing, Media Relations, Investor Pitching and Graphic Design.

Guy was also chairman of the Global Pitch Committee at Partners Group, overseeing all investor presentations.

Guy has been involved across all aspects of the fundraising cycle including investment team preparation ahead of roadshows, as well as investor pitching and managing fundraising due diligence meetings.

 

Laura Shelley and Cameron Glenister join as PR Associates

Laura and Cameron have joined Brackendale’s PR division to help buyout houses gain visibility and positive coverage in the private equity and financial press.

She is highly skilled in managing client relations and communications.  She has a Law degree from UCL and has dual British and American citizenship.

Cameron joined Brackendale fresh from studying Business and Management at The University of Plymouth, where he gained knowledge managing client projects, marketing management and running social media accounts.

 

Fay Margo, CEO, Brackendale: “Guy’s appointment will prove invaluable to advising on investor marketing projects such as PPM and pitch deck writing, as well devising Q&A designed to challenge fund managers taking part in our online investor pitch training sessions. Guy and I first worked together 17 years ago, when he was editor-in-chief at Unquote private equity magazine and I was editor of the French version of the publication. Since Laura and Cameron joined the team late last year, I have been greatly impressed by their drive, enthusiasm and results they have achieved for some of our key clients.”
