Huntsworth chairman Lord Myners has resigned after only six months in the role. The move follows CEO and founder Lord Chadlington announced his retirement just months ago.
Former Labour City minister Lord Myners was brought in to steady the business in April following reports of boardroom unrest.
In a statement, Huntsworth said: “The time commitment required for this role has proved to be more than Lord Myners envisaged and it is considered appropriate that a new chairman should take the lead on the appointment of a new chief executive.”
The chaotic boardroom situation at the group is likely to increase speculation about Huntsworth’s future.
Quiller Consultants, the Huntworth owned lobbying agency, is undergoing changes alongside its parent group. Quiller recently appointed former Christie’s comms chief Howell James to take over as chief executive after former Tory adviser Sean Worth stood down from the role to set up his own policy-focused firm.
