Acumen Public Affairs is Expanding its Senior Advisory Team

Acumen Public Affairs is pleased to announce Duncan Lumsden as a new senior advisor on all topics related to media and communications. Duncan offers Acumen a wealth of media and editorial expertise, accumulated over his 25 years of experience in Brussels.   

Working at the intersections of journalism, politics, law, advocacy and business, Duncan has developed a specialism in telling complex stories simply, with clarity and impact. Before Acumen, Duncan was a founding director and Global Managing Editor of regulatory-risk newswire MLex, overseeing editorial operations and content. 

Duncan has in-depth knowledge of policy areas ranging from antitrust, and mergers to digital, trade, and energy. He has also written for a variety of newspapers, and beyond journalism has amassed experience advising on communication campaigns for major blue-chip and high-level political clients across diverse industries, markets and subject matters.   

Commenting on the announcement, Duncan added, “I’m looking forward to this. I’ve watched and admired Acumen’s growth and success over many years and now I get to be a part of it. Wrangling and shaping compelling stories has been my stock-in-trade for years. I’m very pleased to have found the right place to continue doing that.”
