“I would like to thank Andy for his tremendous contribution to Chaucer over the last twenty-three years. Andy has helped create one of the strongest Political Violence and Crisis Management teams in the market with global reach through our offices. It will come as no surprise to practitioners in the class that Harriet Sharp will assume the role of Head of Political Violence and Crisis Management as Andy moves on. Harriet is a highly respected leader and does a magnificent job at Chaucer, and I couldn’t be happier that she has taken on the leadership of the team.”

I have great confidence in the ability of Harriet and the team to take our Political Violence and Crisis Management book to the next level.”
