Naomi Harris

Chief Operating Officer

Naomi leads Newington’s Public Affairs division and the delivery of campaigns across a broad range of sectors at a national and European level. Her experience of working in Whitehall, Westminster and Brussels allows her to offer valuable strategic insight to clients and to tackle some of their toughest challenges, designing policy solutions that secure political support and effect positive change.

A former reporter and winner of Press Gazette Young Journalist of the Year, she advises clients on how to integrate issue-led media strategies into effective public affairs campaigns, and how to exploit fast moving news agendas. Immediately prior to joining Newington she worked for the CBI, where she covered energy and environment, transport, trade and investment policy. She is now an elected member of the CBI’s London Council and a member of the Conservative Party.
