Miles joins JPES from Epic MSLGROUP, a South African strategic communications agency operating across a range of sectors including financial and professional services. He has more than 15 years’ experience working in the financial services sector, both in public relations and as a journalist.

Over the course of his six years at Epic MSLGROUP, Miles was responsible for managing and defining the strategic direction of its Johannesburg business from a start-up basis, subsequently expanding both revenues and headcount significantly. Prior to moving into the PR sector, he was a journalist with tenures at Thomson Reuters and ShareCast in the UK and TradeInvest SA in South Africa. In his new role, Miles will form part of JPES’ management team, with particular responsibility for growing the company’s client base within the wider financial services market.

This is a very exciting time for the company, and following a successful year I am very confident that Miles will add useful experience and depth to the JPES team. I look forward to seeing the benefits that Miles’ knowledge and fresh perspective from his successful time working in South Africa can bring to both JPES and our clients.– Julian Samways, Managing Director, JPES Partners

As one of the leading consultancies to the UK investment industry, JPES has built a solid reputation and an enviable client base. I am excited to be joining the team, as the company looks to further cement this position and continue the rapid growth it has achieved over the last few years.– Miles Donohoe, Director, JPES Partners
