Gavin Grant is the deputy chairman of Burson Marsteller U.K.
Releasing a survey on corporate reputation, Grant said "When you have an angry audience, trust in corporate and political leaders declines significantly. Before an audience is willing to engage their trust again they want to see the leader acknowledge the error".
In late 2011 the RSPCA appointed international communications boss Gavin Grant as their new chief executive. The RSPCA noted: "He was our director of campaigns and communication between 1988-91. He led communications for The Body Shop, and joins the RSPCA from the UK arm of the global public relations company Burson-Marsteller (B-M) where he was Chairman (B-M are the largest PR firm in Sir Martin Sorrell's WPP). While there Gavin founded B-M’s corporate responsibility unit and provided a range of international clients with strategic advice."
