CNC boosts leadership team with appointment of Ben Curson as partner



CNC, the global strategic communications consultancy, today announces the promotion of Ben Curson to partner with immediate effect.

A former broadcast journalist, Ben is based in CNC’s London office where he advises on corporate affairs, financial communications, and crisis and reputation management across a range of clients and markets.

Most recently he has led the development of CNC’s cyber security offer, which sees the business working both with professional services partners and directly with companies, helping them to prepare and respond to cyber security incidents.

Commenting on the announcement, Bernhard Meising, chief executive officer at CNC, said: “Ben joined CNC in 2015 bringing with him a wealth of experience and invaluable insight to our growing client base. He has been pivotal in successfully leading CNC’s cyber security service with a range of new clients too. Ben is an integral member of our leadership team, valued by clients and colleagues alike, and it gives me great pleasure to welcome him to the partnership.”

Ben joined CNC from Instinctif Partners, where he was responsible for the corporate and financial services teams and advising clients in both the corporate affairs and capital markets areas.
Prior to this Ben held senior management roles at Penrose Financial and H+K Strategies, where he was Group Managing Director.

Ben’s appointment to partner comes following the announcement in April that CNC is merging with JKL, the Stockholm headquartered corporate and financial communications group, which is also part of the Publicis group. The combined group will have a global team of around 200 people working across 13 offices in 9 countries.
