We are pleased to announce that Evan O’Connell has re-joined our team as a Senior Consultant, based in Paris but working closely with our Brussels and London teams.
Having left us to work as communications manager on a major international climate and sustainability initiative in Paris, Evan returns to strengthen our political communications capabilities. A communications and public affairs specialist, Evan has worked for corporates and trade associations across a wide range of sectors including: food and drink, chemicals and life sciences, extraction and energy, sport, and telecommunications; as well as non-profits and governments including the government of Georgia and Open Society Foundations.
Prior to joining Aspect, Evan was a research assistant to a U.S. Congressman on Capitol Hill (on healthcare and financial markets reform), and worked in publishing and business intelligence.
A New Yorker by birth; a Londoner and Dubliner by upbringing, Evan has lived, worked and studied on three continents. He is a graduate of Sciences Po Paris. As well as his native English and near-native French, he speaks Dutch, German and Czech.
Founding Partner James Hunt said:
“We are delighted that Evan has joined our team. His Brussels and Paris policy experience, along with his strong copywriting skills and great media relations capabilities, will be a major asset to Aspect. I am looking forward to his input on a wide range of strategic clients, and also working with him to expand our presence in France.”
