No 10 appoints former Mace adviser as head of policy

A former strategic adviser at Mace has been appointed as head of No 10’s policy unit.

Downing Street has confirmed that ex-Mace strategic adviser and former English teacher James Marshall will head up the influential policy unit at the heart of government.

Mr Marshall, who was employed as an adviser by Mace in 2016, also worked as an adviser to former leader of the House of Lords Lord Strathclyde between 2011 and 2016.

His new role will see Mr Marshall in charge of delivering policy for prime minister Theresa May’s government and managing aspects of the Brexit process.

Mace head of corporate communications Tom Lees said: “The next few years is an absolutely critical time that will shape the future success of our country for generations. Having James’s experienced pair of hands at the heart of political power is a good thing for the country and a good thing for the construction industry.”
