He was previously Chief Executive of the successful Vote Leave campaign in the referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union in 2016. He has been described by the Financial Times as “one of the most formidable political strategists in Westminster” and by the New Statesman as “one of the most successful – and feared – campaigners in British politics”. Previously, he led the successful NOtoAV campaign in the 2011 referendum on changing Britain’s voting system, and he also founded the TaxPayers’ Alliance and Business for Britain. He has written four books, appears regularly on TV and radio, and is a frequent speaker both in the UK and overseas.
