Charlotte Street Partners, the communications consultancy based in Edinburgh and London, has appointed Dr Ian Duncan (Lord Duncan of Springbank) as a consulting partner.
It has hired three other staff, including Katie Armour who joins from the Scottish Liberal Democrats.

Ms Armour spent three years as a press officer for the Scottish Liberal Democrats.
Louise Thomson joins as executive assistant after three years in executive assistant roles at the Edinburgh International Festival.
