Daily Telegraph Economics Editor Russ Lynch joins Powerscourt

Powerscourt is pleased to announce the appointment of Russ Lynch as a Director. Russ will provide strategic advice and support to clients across the business.

The firm has delivered a second consecutive year of record growth which demonstrates the resilience of the business model in challenging times and the success of the investment made into new practice areas. Russ joins Powerscourt’s Campaigns team following an award-winning 20-year career in the media which began at Construction News and the Press Association’s City team covering the Global Financial Crisis. He moved to the Evening Standard in 2010, where he rose to become the paper’s Deputy Business Editor.

Russ was latterly the Telegraph’s Economics Editor and has covered the World Economic Forum at Davos, interviewed numerous senior officials and business executives and led the newspaper’s coverage of the global pandemic with several agenda-setting pieces.

Commenting on his appointment Russ said: “Powerscourt represents a tremendous opportunity. From a journalist’s perspective, they have always stood head and shoulders above other agencies in their dealings with, and understanding of, the media, which made them an obvious choice when I was considering the move into communications. I’m very much looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experience and working across the business to support our wide range of clients.”

Steve Marinker, Partner and Head of Campaigns, commented: “Russ is the latest in a string of first-rate appointments at Powerscourt. He brings senior experience straight from the newsroom and we are very glad to have such a talented individual join the team. He will be invaluable to our clients and their understanding of the way the modern media is evolving.”
