The London wing of Lippincott has installed Greg Handrick as a Senior Partner with immediate effect. The Oliver Wyman subsidiary has made Handrick its EMEA Director, and he will now seek to drive business development for the firm across the region.

As Lippincott looks to strengthen its European operations, the New York-based creative and brand consultancy has brought Greg Handrick on board as a Senior Partner and Director for the EMEA region. In his new role, Handrick will be tasked with spearheading client leadership, talent development, and financial stewardship, while driving collaboration with international consultancy Oliver Wyman. His role will be heavily focused on business development, but will also include work with key existing clients.

Handrick brings over 20 years of expertise in helping clients accelerate business growth, previously spending more than 10 years at Prophet. There, he was responsible for growth in the UK, as well as leading Prophet’s financial services practice. Prior to that, he served as Director of Convergence at telecom firm Orange, and spent three years as an Associate at McKinsey & Company. He has worked across clients including UBS, eBay, Swarovski, Zurich Financial, Danske Bank, iShares, CVC Capital Partners, Spire Healthcare, Al Jazeera and Virgin Active.

Commenting on his new challenge, Handrick said, “I’ve been brought in with a very simple remit; to help grow the European and Middle East business. Part of this is about increasing our visibility in the U.K. The other part is about going to market in a more integrated fashion with the other practices of Oliver Wyman,” Handrick said. “We have big ambitions for the next three to five years.”Greg Handrick joins Lippincott
