Atalanta’s leadership transition covered by POLITICO and PR Week

16 May 2024 · 1 min read

Atalanta’s recent leadership transition has been covered by political and sector press as an example of a successful strategic leadership transition by an agency.

The move, in which Atalanta’s Founder Eva Barboni became the company’s Executive Chair and Elizabeth Ames and Claire Fyfe stepped up as Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer respectively, received coverage in the UK’s largest communications trade publication, PR Week UK as well as POLITICO’s London Influence.

In PR Week UK, Jonathan Owen noted Atalanta’s growth over the last several years. Our team has expanded from 8 to 20 since 2020, with a wide range of skills and expertise, from senior policy and public affairs consultants to traditional and digital media relations specialists and in-house designers. PR Week also noted Atalanta’s growing client base, now totalling 19 partners across a wide variety of sectors, including sustainability and conservation, education and skills, public health, finance, and good governance and community engagement.

In its coverage, POLITICO highlighted Atalanta’s leading position as one of the UK’s few women-led and owned strategic communications and stakeholder engagement agencies. In covering the leadership transition, POLITICO also applauded Atalanta’s founding principle to advance gender equality, including in public leadership, noting that the company works to “make politics less of a relentless festival of mediocre blokes.”
