Instinctif Partners Promotes Two Senior Colleagues


Instinctif Partners has made two senior promotions in its UK team. Damian Reece has been promoted to Senior Counsel for Strategic Client Advisory in Corporate Affairs and Jeremy Durrant has been promoted to Chief UK Media Strategist.

Damian has been at Instinctif Partners for eight years and is a crucial part of the leadership of the UK business, and one of the most trusted senior client advisers in the industry. Damian will continue working with existing and new clients to provide strategic personal support to CEOs, Founders and other senior leaders covering all areas of reputation management including financial, corporate, political, and crisis. Prior to joining Instinctif Partners, Damian spent 23 years as a national media reporter, commentator and editor, culminating in eight years as Head of Business at The Telegraph Media Group.

Jeremy as Chief UK Media Strategist will be responsible for overseeing Instinctif Partners’ relationships with UK based media groups and platforms, print and digital. Jeremy will lead a group of experts providing advice to teams across Instinctif on how to navigate earned media relationships in a world in which the line between earned and paid is dissolving. This new role will span all Instinctif’s UK teams, including Corporate and Campaigns, Capital Markets, Strategic Advisory Services and Public Policy. Jeremy has been with Instinctif Partners for more than 12 years and at the start of his career he spent seven years in regional journalism principally in Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

Ed Amory, CEO, said: “Damian and Jeremy are two exceptional corporate advisors and I am delighted to congratulate them on their enhanced roles.”

Instinctif Partners is independently owned, with the majority stake held by private equity firm LDC.
