Our Story

About Us

Scotland demands and deserves a world-class strategic communications and reputation risk agency. Charlotte Street Partners is that agency.

In an increasingly challenging operating environment, leaders need insight, strategic counsel, global context and expert communications advice from people they trust and like.

Our clients value the quality of our advice and senior counsel. They value the oversight of our partners, our networks and connections, and the enhanced context we provide.

They value our candour and our pragmatism.

They share our infectious, ambitious spirit.

They like our people.

And they see and feel the difference we bring in the work we do together.

We are on the pulse of what’s happening in business, media, government and the third sector – in Scotland and across the UK.

We are this small country’s world-class strategic communications agency, but our reach extends well beyond these shores.

Our Difference

Our difference is our people and our approach.

Our people think beyond communication. We bring together the best and brightest of careers forged across many sectors and the UK’s civic, industry, political and media landscapes.

Our approach is always based on partnerships – working together with our clients to make a difference to their business and purpose, wider society and the world.

To do that we build relationships based on candour, trust and excellence, allowing us to challenge organisations to be the best they can be and present themselves confidently to the world outside.

Working with the Charlotte Street Partners team was stimulating, fun and effective. We’ve had strong feedback from clients and intermediaries who report that they understand us better after reading the work produced. That’s what we wanted, that’s what we got. Good team, fine people, delighted with the outcome.

Our Story

Our founders, Andrew and Malcolm, started out in 2013 to build a different kind of agency. Over nightcaps in Fitzrovia’s Charlotte Street Hotel (from which we take our name), they determined to create something different – an agency that provides excellent, long-term value.

They created an agency that is based on difference, partnership and excellence with a loyal client base, some of whom have been with us since day one, and who benefit each day from the expert team Andrew and Malcolm have assembled.

A decade on, Charlotte Street Partners is a world-class strategic communications and reputation risk consultancy that provides high-level insight, confident counsel and expert advice to organisations from around the world on some of today’s most impactful communications issues and projects.

I’m really impressed with the Charlotte Street Partners team. They don’t seem to be fazed by anything. They’re a resourceful, industrious team who quickly got up to speed with my issues as their new client. The work they have produced has been first-rate. They’re a joy to work with.
