NEW YORK, June 26—Brunswick Group, the London-based corporate communications specialist that has been expanding in the U.S. for the past two years has added several more senior staff, including Piedad Fernandez and Annie Schultz in its New York office, and Cristina Ruück in Washington, D.C. In addition, Nicola Atherstone has transferred to New York from Brunswick’s Johannesburg office.
 
Fernandez joins the firm’s financial practice as an associate partner with over 15 years experience in global equity markets, specializing in Europe and Latin America. She has worked in institutional research sales for both Bear Stearns and HSBC Securities, and spent time in London as a portfolio manager for several asset management firms.
 
Atherstone has worked for Brunswick in South Africa since 1999and has expertise in emerging markets, investor and media relations, having worked for companies such as Rolls-Royce, Cazenove and Sappi, and on IPOs including Astral Foods and Credcor.
 
Rüuck previously worked in press relations for U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, and joins in the firm’s regulatory and litigation practice. Schultz has experience includes advertising, law and public service. Both will be executives at the firm.
 
In the U.K., the firm recently hired Andy Hood, a former special adviser to the Ministry of Defence, as internal chief of staff for managing partner Alan Parker. The appointment drew some criticism from opposition politicians, who worried that there might be a conflict of interest, particularly if Hood engages in lobbying or government relations work for defense contractors, but Brunswick says that won’t happen.
