Senior Account Supervisor
Ben Simonds is a senior account supervisor at Qorvis Communications who helps direct operations in Europe, advising sovereign clients, intergovernmental organizations and corporations on strategic communications and crisis and reputation management.
Before taking his assignment in Europe, he was the principal communications adviser to the government of Fiji for three years, where he provided messaging support, drafted speeches for the prime minister, and advised on social media and government communications. The overall political narrative developed with the government leadership by Simonds and his colleagues and its articulation through speeches and events were significant factors in the government's electoral victory in 2014 and the full restoration of democracy in Fiji.
Simonds attended the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, where he received his bachelors and masters degrees.
