Copper, the specialist infrastructure, property and built environment communications consultancy, welcomes two new recruits to its London team.

Irina Sukhikh has been appointed as an Account Manager in Copper’s London office, bringing diverse expertise in developing and implementing strategy to engage with stakeholders, mitigate reputational risk and manage issues and crises.

During her career, Irina has held roles in the public, not-for-profit and consultancy sectors. Irina will be able to support clients by applying her multi-disciplinary approach to a variety of complex stakeholder contexts in both the infrastructure and property fields.

To strengthen its intelligence gathering and research capability, Copper has also appointed Eleanor Keen as an Infrastructure Analyst. Eleanor’s work gives Copper and its clients a clear insight into the UK’s infrastructure priorities, identifies opportunities for public and private infrastructure investment and puts Copper at the forefront of front-end infrastructure development practice.

Ben Heatley, Director at Copper, said: “Copper has seen steady growth across our Birmingham, London and Bristol offices in the past year, and these new additions to our London team will strengthen our offering. Irina and Eleanor’s strategic capabilities will provide fresh insights for our clients, who work on the country’s most complex infrastructure and development projects”.
