Former Downing Street Director of Communications and Co-Founder of iNHouse Communications Katie Perrior is re-joining the company as its first Chair, as she builds a portfolio career outside Government. The news comes following the appointment of Strategic Comms and Public Affairs Leader, Michelle Di Leo last month, who joins iNHouse from FHF where she is a Partner.

These appointments come at a time of continued growth for the Westminster-based company known for its political and media relations expertise. iNHouse Communications Founding Partner Jo Tanner said: “This has been a fantastic year for the company. After significant growth in recent months, we have decided to invest heavily to bolster our senior counsel and ensure we can continue to provide our clients with the best advice and support.

“I am thrilled Katie is coming back to the company as Chair, enhancing the fantastic offer we now provide. Our unique style continues to stand out in the market with a unique blend of creative campaigns, crisis comms, public affairs, in addition to our successful innovations like the Party Conference London Lounge. I cannot wait to see what heights the company will reach with Michelle and Katie joining our already fantastic team.”

Katie Perrior said: “Over the past year I have occupied a top seat at the heart of Government, leading the communications strategy domestically and abroad as well as understanding how Government really works. I hope to bring my knowledge to iNHouse as its first Chair, supporting the company I helped establish as it enters this exciting time.”

Incoming Partner Michelle Di Leo said: “I can’t wait to get started working alongside Jo and Katie to continue to build the great company they founded and go on the next stage of that journey with them.”
