Ex-Gallagher, Gatehouse and VMA Consultant, Andy Macleod joins Comma Partners

As it celebrates its 14th birthday, Comma Partners welcomes Andy Macleod in a new Director role to support the expanding specialist resourcing communications and change consultancy.
Andy has been part of the internal communications industry for over 20 years. Most recently, Andy was Director at Gallagher (previously Gatehouse), specialising in internal communications recruitment, consultancy, and training. Previously, Andy headed up Interim Communications Recruitment at VMA Group after 15 years in in-house internal communications roles.

Starting on Monday 2 August, Andy will work alongside Founder and Managing Director, Virginia Hicks, to develop Comma’s core business in providing clients with high calibre interim and permanent resource to support Communications, Engagement and Change.

Together, Virginia and Andy have decades of experience in communications and have extensive client and candidate networks. They will continue to evolve the Comma brand to support the future of work and meet changing client requirements because of the Off-Payroll regulations.
Andy commented: “I am incredibly excited to be joining Virginia at Comma Partners. Since the pandemic, clients are now even more aware of the crucial role internal communicators need to play in supporting the employee experience. With the pace of change continuing to increase and businesses needing to adapt to a post-COVID world, I am looking forward to providing first class resourcing solutions to help clients remain successful. With Comma’s reputation and my background in the industry, I’m confident we will go from strength to strength in the years ahead.” 

Virginia said: “I am thrilled that Andy is joining Comma Partners. Not only does Andy bring great knowledge of the sector and new expertise, he is full of ideas and enthusiasm. He is highly regarded by clients, candidates, and colleagues alike, and will be a fantastic addition to the team. We are really looking forward to welcoming him in August.”
