After a stint as business editor of The Sunday Times, Rory Godson served as director of corporate affairs at Goldman Sachs International before setting up Powerscourt in 2004.
He previously told Spear’s that he enjoys helping clients ‘navigate uncharted territory, protecting them from their enemies and getting them home safe’. And, when it comes to clients’ problems, ‘the tougher and more complex it is, the better’. That outlook may be a consequence of his journalism career, which he says ‘taught me to deal with multiple sources addressing challenging issues under great time pressure’.
Powerscourt made headlines itself in 2018 when it was hired by Sir Martin Sorrell’s investment vehicle, S4 Capital, to handle its financial PR and again in 2019 when Godson was named one of media’s most influential people by the Evening Standard.
