The Team

David Madden
David Madden
Account Director and PLMR Head of Planning

David plays a key role in much of the company’s planning, PR, lobbying and crisis management work.

In addition to work on our core public affairs and media relations accounts David leads the company’s growing planning practice.  With over 15 years’ experience in planning lobbying, David’s work has taken him across the length and breadth of the country.  His understanding of the wide ranging nature of local authority decision making structures and planning practice is second to none.

Crisis management work has included working successfully with clients and media lawyers to minimise negative coverage in national press and television.  PR and public affairs campaigns have included award-winning work for an international music label and government-level profile raising for a NYSE listed technology provider.

David has appeared on national television and radio, both on behalf of clients and for PLMR.  He is a regular contributor of articles to the media and was recently published in Total Politics and Healthcare Business.  Articles and letters drafted for clients have appeared in national broadsheets including the Times and the Guardian.

Prior to joining PLMR David worked as an independent consultant for a number of other firms, was for several years a Section Manager at the London Headquarters of an international recruitment firm and worked as a researcher for a Peer in the House of Lords.

David is a graduate of the University of London, Queen Mary College (BA Hons. English Literature).
