Based in London, Hook will join the EMEA and US-based government relation teams in working with Invesco’s corporate communications team to develop a programme focused on building on the business’ approach to stakeholder engagement across relevant jurisdictions.
Hook’s appointment follows the announcement last month of Elizabeth Gillam assuming the Brussels-based role of head of EU government relations public policy.
The recent appointments complement the recently-formed US government relations team based in Washington DC.
Hook, who starts his role today (5 November) and reports to Invesco’s general counsel, EMEA, Ruper Rossander, previously worked in four UK government departments including as special adviser to Phillip Hammond as Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Most recently, he worked with the Investment Association, advising on its government relations strategy.
Rossander said: “We are very pleased to welcome Graham to the team. His role will form a key part of our increased focus on the way we approach policymakers and regulators at a domestic, regional and international level.”
