The influential lobbyist spills the beans on the media and political elite
Mark Gallagher is one of the UK’s most well known and respected lobbyists, prominent Brexiteer, and former Director of Public Affairs at ITN. He founded Pagefield in 2010 as a result of ‘boredom’ and a love of what he calls ‘running towards the gunfire’. As Senior Partner, he has built an award-winning agency, with clients including Camelot, 21st Century Fox and John Lewis. In this in-depth interview, he reveals why old media brands are ‘not to be underestimated’ despite the move to digital, and makes the case that corporates are unfairly held to a much higher standard than NGOs and charities.
