David Yelland

Spear’s Review

Former editor of The Sun David Yelland founded boutique reputation firm Kitchen Table Partners in 2015 to ‘counsel individuals and the businesses they run’.

The europhile Manchester City fanatic sees reputation management as akin to the insurance industry, as more clients view it as a form of ‘risk management’.

‘There are policies against fraud, fire, theft… every major company is trying to manage currency risks,’ Yelland says. ‘Reputation is increasingly seen to be in that bucket.’

Yelland deals with private clients at a close, personal level, advising them on managing the media, especially the tabloids. Having access to information is not enough: ‘You’ve got to know what to do with it,’ he says, and few are better versed than Yelland, who has enough experience of the industry to understand ‘the way the country works, as opposed to the way people think it works’.
