Morrow Sodali Hires Claire Lavery to Launch Investor Research & Insights Practice

Morrow Sodali, the global leader in stakeholder engagement advisory services, is pleased to announce the launch of their research practice for the EMEA region, offering corporate clients insights and research into investor and market perceptions.

The new division will be based in London and led by Claire Lavery, one of Europe’s leading investor insights professionals. As a recognized leader in data-driven interview-informed insight, Claire is a trusted strategic advisor to corporates across the FTSE 100, Euro STOXX, and beyond, helping corporate management teams and boards marry investor needs and expectations with commercial priorities and realities.

Christian Sealey, CEO International, Morrow Sodali said: “Claire’s recruitment is a key part of the development of a full-service stakeholder engagement firm in Europe. She offers clear, objective insight to boardrooms, helping leaders get closer to their investors, driving valuation and reducing risk. Her service is a perfect complement to our existing suite, allowing us to fulfil more needs for more clients.”

Her appointment and the establishment of the research practice follows Morrow Sodali’s recent acquisition of Powerscourt, a leading strategic communications consultancy.

Morrow Sodali’s EMEA research practice will principally focus on stakeholder perception research, providing actionable and meaningful insights for clients across the region, and topical thought leader, market driven research.

Claire Lavery said: “In an increasingly complex and polarised world where reputations are gained in years and lost in minutes, insight and measurement has never been higher on the Board agenda.

“The rapid development of Morrow Sodali shows clear strategic intent and exceptional execution. I am truly thrilled to be part of the team that is so much more than the sum of our parts.”
