Meet Austyn Close

Austyn joined the agency in June 2018 - working in the Property and Private Equity team - and is beginning to explore various other parts of the organisation such as Public Affairs and Consumer PR.

Working on the luxury residential portfolio of clients in the Property team, Austyn has been developing the consumer brand partnerships and influencer marketing arm to enhance the team’s offering. One of the main workstreams Austyn is supporting on is the event management wing of various client accounts – organising everything from potential buyer/investor events to lifestyle focused partnerships.   

Austyn specialised in East Asian politics, history, society and culture at SOAS University of London, graduating with an undergraduate degree in International Relations and History. He is enthusiastic to build on the agency’s international outreach and knowledge of the region at wide.

Originally from the green countryside of Northern Ireland, Austyn has been living in London since 2015 but hasn’t been able to shrug off the accent yet. He is a keen political and lifestyle blogger, style/design enthusiast and traveller when he can find the time. You can usually find him pottering around London’s newest cocktail bars on the weekend.

“Helping to design a proposal for an Asylum & Immigration Law Clinic for the local area of Camden was rather fulfilling!”
