INFINITE GLOBAL HIRES PATRICK TOOHER TO LEAD FINANCIAL SERVICES PRACTICE
International communications firm Infinite Global has appointed Patrick Tooher as director and head of its UK financial services practice.
Tooher has held a number of senior corporate communications roles both in-house and agency-side following a 16-year career in business journalism, latterly as city editor of the Mail on Sunday.
He was head of media relations for KPMG in the UK for five years and head of PR at the Co-operative Bank during its banking and governance crisis. He joins Infinite Global from WE Communications, after six years as a director at Citypress.
Infinite Global has advised a number of leading financial services organisations, including major players in the insurance, pensions, and wealth and asset management sectors. Tooher will oversee the continued growth of the firm’s financial services offering in the UK, focusing on corporate reputation management, including crisis and issues communications, C-suite profiling, governance and purpose.
Tooher says, “Infinite Global has a well-earned reputation in the market for outstanding client service and understanding complex communications issues. I’m pleased to be joining an award-winning team with such momentum behind it and working to build on the firm’s continued success.”
Tooher will divide his time between Infinite Global’s head office in London and his home city of Manchester, where he will have direct access to its flourishing financial services and fintech ecosystem, while also developing Infinite Global’s national and regional profile.
