Copper Consultancy appointing Jamie Bannerman to bolster its strategic communications offer

Helping to spearhead the firm’s ambitions to expand in Scotland. Joining from Portland, and previously Weber Shandwick, Jamie has significant experience in driving strategic campaigns. Through delivering specialist support for global organisations such as KPMG, BP, Pfizer, the Taskforce for Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) and more.

As Copper continues to see significant opportunities for sustainable growth, Jamie will not only strengthen the agency’s foothold and expansion in Scotland. But, his diversified skillset and experience is set to be a strategic advantage to clients across the infrastructure, construction and energy sectors.

Director of Strategic Communications, Annabel Beardsmore, said: “Jamie’s experience leading global communications strategies is immensely valuable for our business. He has a proven track record of supporting multinational and specialist organisations – across the corporate and industrial sectors – in addressing some of the most complex communications challenges they face. His appointment to our strategic communications practice is already bolstering the bespoke and creative expertise that our clients receive and creating new service offerings.”

Jamie’s multi-sectoral experience includes energy, corporate affairs, petrochemicals, technology and infrastructure. At Copper, he will be helping lead a team of skilled communicators, creative content creators; and media relations, digital, issues, and stakeholder engagement specialists.

Commenting on his appointment, Jamie said: “I am driven by the big challenges. And there is nothing more pressing to our industry and society than the transition to net zero and a sustainable economy. Copper is, consciously, a specialist agency that has a long-standing commitment to and record of success in supporting clients in addressing those challenges.

“I am in no doubt that I join the company at an exciting time. With ambitious growth plans, significant investment in the team, and the backing of the RSK Group, I am excited to add my skills and experience to the mix.

“Most importantly, I am here to support our clients. We live in a world that is increasingly noisy and chaotic, and the pace and scale of change that is on the horizon is unparalleled. Intelligent and creative communications can cut through the noise, calm the chaos and distil the complex; and that is what I will be helping to deliver for clients.”
