Foco appoints Amy Rowe as partner

Amy Rowe partner Foco

Amy Rowe has joined former colleague Michael Taggart on the management team at Foco.

Rowe, who worked alongside Taggart at PR agency MRM for two years until June this year, will head up Foco’s content proposition and will lead on nurturing talent within the business.

Taggart left his role as head of digital at MRM in June to found Foco with communications specialist John Shewell.

The consultancy works with public sector and financial services businesses that have a founding commitment to producing social good.

Rowe, who managed social media and websites for Citywire before working at MRM, joins as the third partner and has been tasked with building the company’s fintech unit.

Taggart, who also co-founded award-winning digital publisher with Rowe in 2016, said: “Amy is a visionary when it comes to content that inspires change. Knowing, as I do, her tremendous energy, her instinct for leadership and the joy she takes in seeing great
people do great work, I feel good about Foco’s future.”

Rowe added: “This feels like the sort of opportunity that you don’t pass up.

“The goals Michael and John have for Foco – to create a talented community of happy and accomplished professionals working with businesses that want to make people’s lives better – align perfectly with mine. I can’t wait to get started.”
