FTI Consulting has added several senior figures to its team, including former health secretary Patricia Hewitt.

Hewitt (pictured), who also served in Tony Blair's Labour Government as secretary of state for trade and industry and cabinet minister for women, joins the consulting firm as senior adviser, helping to expand its offering in public affairs.

It is the latest in a series of business roles for Hewitt since leaving the Cabinet, including serving on the board of telecoms group BT and as director of EuroTunnel group.

Joining Hewitt as senior adviser at FTI is Philippa Roe, current leader of Westminster City Council.

They will work alongside the company's newly appointed UK head of public affairs, Alex Deane.

Other new appointments at FTI include Liam O'Keefe as a senior director and Alex Holroyd as a director.

O'Keefe joins from Accounting for International Development and has prior experience at Weber Shandwick. Holroyd moves to the UK from FTi's office in Belgium.
