Malcolm Robertson is one of our two founding partners. Despite objecting to the term on the basis that he’s “not anywhere near 50 yet”, Malcolm is nevertheless a veteran of the UK communications industry.
He served his apprenticeship more than 20 years ago at Beattie Media, which, at the time, was Scotland’s largest PR agency. From there he moved to BAA, the airports operator, where he spent 12 lively years on the frontline of some of the most
high-profile political, regulatory and operational crises of that era, advising the Board and shareholders.
In 2011, Malcolm went it alone and spent two years managing a small strategic advisory business, representing clients in the banking and transport sectors, as well as advising a number of international private equity and infrastructure funds. At Charlotte Street Partners, he advises clients on long-term reputation in challenging and changing circumstances.
Malcolm is a member of Unicef’s Scottish advisory board and Chairs the Board of Trustees for The Hutchison Vale Foundation, a new charity established to promote youth sport and community in Edinburgh. He is also a volunteer coach at Hutchie Vale, taking responsibility for supporting the club’s youngest age groups.
