Fraser Paterson, formerly the PR and public affairs manager for the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, joins as a Senior Client Manager following more than a decade in strategic communications. Prior to his role with the Royal College, Fraser ran his own communications consultancy, PAT Communications, where he developed his specialisms in public affairs and crisis handling.

Nathalie Hélène also joins as a Client Manager from the Scottish Government, where she worked as an internal communications manager. Hélène previously worked as a communications officer for Children’s Hearings Scotland, leading the organisation’s social media team.

Charlotte Street Partners is also proud to announce the promotion of Anna Dickens to Associate Partner. Dickens joined the team as a senior client manager in May 2022 from the National Union of Students.

The promotion of Dickens to Associate Partner further demonstrates Charlotte Street Partners' commitment to recognising and rewarding the exceptional talent within its team. The company looks forward to continuing to grow with its talented and dedicated advisers at the forefront.

Commenting on the team changes, Charlotte Street Partners’ Managing Partner, Laura Hamilton, said:

“We are delighted to announce Anna’s promotion to Associate Partner in recognition of her outstanding contribution to our team and clients. Anna has made a significant impact in her relatively short time with us and we have faith that she will continue to deliver exceptional value in her new role.

“Fraser and Nathalie have also brought expertise and value to our clients. Their arrival as the company evolves is exciting, and we are confident that their perspectives, counsel, and expertise will benefit our clients.”

The news comes amid a phase of ambitious growth for the company, which announced several new hires late last year, along with a full rebrand. Charlotte Street Partners also recently relocated to a larger office on Thistle Street to accommodate the expanding team.
