Fourtold Appoints MD to Build on its Rapidly Growing Brussels/EU Institutions Offer
Integrated strategic communications consultancy Fourtold has recruited Omar Mockbil as managing director of its fast-growing EU advocacy comms business in Brussels.
Omar, a Swedish national, will lead Fourtold’s expanding Brussels team and integrate with Fourtold’s wider team in the UK, Germany, and the U.S.
His arrival further expands Fourtold’s team following the arrival of director, Christina Fee, consultants Kevin Butler (promoted this week to senior consultant) and Tomas Vitas, and junior consultant Lydia Welham over the past 18 months. Interns Aysenaz Güneri and Alice Durant have also joined the team.
Omar joins Fourtold from Hill+Knowlton Strategies’ Brussels team and brings impressive EU expertise which will further strengthen Fourtold’s senior leadership. He has previously represented clients on such issues as AI and digitisation, diversity & inclusion, the circular economy, and sustainability, amongst others.
Omar’s remit is to lead the Brussels team in helping further grow the existing science, health and technology client base, drive new business, and attract and nurture the best talent.
He will help build on the consultancy’s growing reputation for integrated advocacy and communications work with global organisations – including Vodafone, PepsiCo, Healthy Europe, CropLife Europe (formerly ECPA) and Brewers of Europe.
Managing Partner of Fourtold, Debbie Parriss, comments:
“Omar’s experience and client track record in integrated communications comes at a time of real opportunity for us. We are experiencing significant growth at the moment, from clients who want the reassurance of the consistent involvement of senior staff with global agency experience but without the same price tag. Omar’s international background – living and working in Europe and the Middle East, gives him a broad perspective on global issues and we’re delighted he is joining us at this exciting stage in our development.”
“I’ve followed Fourtold’s progress with interest as it has developed into an award-winning business in Brussels. It is establishing itself as a consultancy to watch in some of the most challenging and complex sectors, both in Europe and internationally and I’m looking forward to playing a role in its next phase of evolution.”
