John Hume

I founded Hume Brophy in 2005 along with Eoin Brophy and have successfully built it into one of the fastest growing and successful global communications agencies. As founder of the firm, I have built an international team of public affairs and communications specialists that are today relied upon by many of world’s largest and most prestigious companies.

I specialise in developing and executing international government and societal engagement campaigns, primarily in the aviation and food & drink sectors. During my time at Hume Brophy, I have been responsible for many successful pan-European political engagement campaigns. I have also worked extensively in the Middle East and South East Asia on behalf of client companies.

I have over 30 years’ experience of political campaigning and lobbying. Prior to founding Hume Brophy, I was Deputy Director General of Airports Council International Europe. I also held a number of senior positions within the global duty free industry. I started my career as a Management Consultant with Deloitte.

Lastly, I am a fluent French speaker and I am currently based in Dublin.
