Nepean team expands with two new appointments and promotions

Nepean, the reputation and strategic communications advisory firm founded by former Sky Corporate Communications Director, Gavin Davis, today announces the appointments of Anna Cacciaguerra Ranghieri as Associate Director and Celeste Newbury as Analyst. The appointments come alongside a number of internal promotions including Samuel Emden to Associate Director and Harry Roxburgh to Senior Consultant.

Anna, who joins from litigation specialist firm, DRD Partnership, brings experience in crisis management preparedness and litigation, particularly through the lens of ESG, having worked with FTSE 100 companies, a major veterinary health group and City law firms. She has advised a high-profile litigation against a major digital brand for misuse of data, and assisted a European-headquartered INGO around serious safeguarding and governance failures. Anna also helped to establish the first overseas office of London–headquartered strategic communications firm, Project Associates in Brussels, where she advised embassies around public diplomacy issues, including a major humanitarian disaster in the Gulf region.

Celeste joins Nepean from recruitment consultant Empiric where she was responsible for business development. With a BA in Philosophy from the University of Reading, she will work alongside recent appointee, Ambika Sharma, to build on the firm’s research and insight expertise.

Gavin Davis, Founder and Managing Partner of Nepean, commented, “Anna is a fantastic addition to our team. Her expertise will further strengthen the business and our advisory offer to clients. I would also like to congratulate all those promoted this year. We have always been committed to nurturing and developing talent and it’s great to see them flourish in the way they have.

Anna Cacciaguerra Ranghieri commented, “I’m delighted to join Nepean. It’s hugely exciting to see the business growing at pace and realising the great ambitions it has for the future. I look forward to being a part of this talented, agile and hard-working team.
