The new management board appointments follow the recent naming of 10 new equity partners at Opinium, taking the number of partners at the firm to 21 alongside Opinium’s 28 original owners.

“Given our size and ambitions the time is now right to promote the brilliant Emily, Debbie, Josh, and Tom up to join me on the management board.

“They will help me to continue to put our people first by working closely with all our teams to set and deliver our ambitious strategic objectives. Further management board positions will be considered in the future.”
