He is a former special adviser to the UK Conservative Party.
Controversial clientsAldi, chemical giant Ineos and ride-sharing service Uber.
Shortly after Day left Portcullis, his former client Ineos also switched agencies.
In an interview in 2015 he said:
- Ineos are leading the way on fracking, we’re leading their work on fracking. So we’re dealing in issues – and I think this is Burson Marsteller’s heritage really - that are current and controversial.'
- ...It’s heavily regulated sectors where we’re strongest and people who’ve got an innovative and perhaps disruptive brand. We worked on the strike that Uber had and I led Burson Marsteller’s work across EMEA for that. Also Aldi is indicative of where we’re going. Aldi is another disruptive brand who’ve come into a market and shaken it up. We’re not afraid of controversy.
Other client accounts Day has previously handled include: Hospital Corporation of America, Standard Chartered Bank, Johnson and Johnson News International, Coca-Cola, Marks & Spencer and British Energy
