Matthew Moth will be joining our University on 1st July as Director of Communications in the Division of Communications, Marketing and Student Recruitment.

Matthew joins us from Madano, a strategic communications consultancy he co-founded, which specialises in reputation management, change management and crisis communications across sectors such as higher education, energy, the built-environment, healthcare, professional and financial services. Matthew provides board level communications advisory support, is an expert in issues and crisis management and has a wealth of experience in all aspects of corporate and financial communications, including change management and restructuring across internal and external stakeholder audiences and media management.

Prior to founding Madano in 2004, Matthew was a Director at Bell Pottinger Financial and Group Director of Communications at Taylor Woodrow plc. He recently finished his term as President of the Canada-UK Chamber of Commerce and is a Trustee of two charities. 

Commenting on his appointment Matthew said: “Today more than ever, the importance of communications in developing engaged relationships and just getting things done, is well understood. As we emerge from the challenging period of the pandemic, there is a great opportunity to use that bounce-back to positively build on the communications we do well and address those areas where we need to up our game. As a Manchester graduate, the University has always had a fascination for me, and it is a real privilege to be joining the team at such an exciting and dynamic time.”

Matthew will report into Director of Communications, Marketing and Student Recruitment, Claire Brown.

Claire commented: “I am delighted that we have been able to attract such a talented professional to join our University and provide advice and support to our University’s Senior Leadership Team.

“We will all benefit from Matthew’s experience and expertise and I look forward to welcoming him on 1 July.”



Everyone at Dixon Walter would like to take this opportunity to wish Matthew every success in his new role!
