Clive Bidwell has joined creative communications agency MerchantCantos as the firm’s new client services director.

During his 13-plus years at Radley Yeldar, where he served on the board as well as leading the corporate reporting team, Bidwell worked with clients – including Antofagasta, Lloyds Banking Group and Vodafone – to ‘help them improve their communications by advising on audiences, messaging, channels, structure and content, as well as legislation and best practice,’ notes a MerchantCantos press statement. Bidwell also initiated and led Radley Yeldar’s annual benchmarking analysis of FTSE 100 reporting, titled How does it stack up? 

Bidwell’s appointment will help strengthen the company’s corporate reporting offering, according to a MerchantCantos press statement in which Richard Carpenter, managing partner at MerchantCantos, welcomes Bidwell to the firm.

‘Clive’s appointment is further confirmation of our commitment to hire the best talent and continue to build on our first-class team to serve our clients’ needs in the most outstanding way,’ says Carpenter, adding that he has worked with Bidwell before for many years.

‘I’m delighted to join MerchantCantos,’ says Bidwell. ‘It has such a talented team, a truly international outlook and bags of ambition to really help clients succeed.’
