Tulchan Communications has appointed Mark Burgess as a Senior Advisor


Mark has built a highly successful career as one of London’s most experienced and influential institutional investors. Until October last year, he was Deputy Global CIO and Chief Investment Officer, EMEA, at Columbia Threadneedle, managers of £105bn of assets. He joined Threadneedle Investments as CIO in 2010 having previously been Head of Equities at LGIM. Mark has also been at the forefront of the development of the Governance Code and practices that have characterised the London capital markets, including being involved with the establishment, and Board member of, The Investor Forum.

Andrew Grant, Senior Partner, Tulchan Communications Group Ltd said:

“We are very pleased that Mark has chosen to come and join Tulchan, initially as a Senior Adviser. He will be working with us three days a week and will be fully engaged across our clients.

Mark brings very significant experience of the investment process and on engaging with companies on governance issues. We anticipate clients will welcome his advice on developing a compelling investment case and their engagement with shareholders. For those clients who are engaged in either an M&A transaction or an IPO we believe his experience and insight will be of particular value.

Our ambition as a firm is to continue to build London’s pre-eminent communications advisory team. We have a strong record of giving the Executives and the Boards of our clients bespoke, experienced advice on how to best engage with, and communicate to, their most important stakeholders – particularly at critical times. Mark will be a significant addition to our advisory capabilities and experience and on behalf of my colleagues I would like to warmly welcome Mark to Tulchan.”

Mark Burgess said:

“Over the past ten years I have progressively got to know Tulchan and its Partners. I am enormously excited to have this opportunity to forge a close working relationship with them. I am particularly excited to have the opportunity to deploy my markets, governance and client expertise in a new field and hope to be able to add further value to Tulchan’s clients and the wider firm.”

Tulchan would also like to express our thanks and appreciation to Jonathan Baines who will be standing down as a Senior Adviser at the end of our financial year in March 2021. He has been a wonderful colleague and contributed in so many ways. We will miss working with him and wish him every success in the future.
