John Hume

I founded Hume Brophy (now Penta) 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 Penta, 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.
