Sir Lynton Crosby, AO

Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, C|T Group (London)

Sir Lynton Crosby is a renowned campaign strategist and Chief Executive Officer of the C|T Group - which delivers powerful, targeted solutions built on the foundation of research and insights into the highest levels of business, capital markets, government, bureaucracy and the media.

Sir Lynton’s intuitive sense of delivering results has been finely honed through years of providing high-level advice to prime ministers, premiers, opposition leaders and leaders of business.

In 1998 and 2001, Sir Lynton successfully led the campaign for Australian Prime Minister John Howard. In the 2008 London Mayoral elections, Sir Lynton masterminded the campaign that saw Boris Johnson beat the Labour incumbent Ken Livingstone against the odds. In 2012 he repeated this success for Boris Johnson, bucking the Conservative Party’s national trend and securing him a further term.

In the 2015 UK General Election, Sir Lynton steered the Conservative Party to a historic victory. He took the party from a 12 point deficit, to a near 7 point lead – returning, for the first time since 1955, a Conservative Government with an increased share of the vote.

This earned him a Campaign Excellence Award from the American Association of Political Consultants, which recognised him as Campaign Manager of the Year for the 2015 cycle.

Drawing on skills and experience acquired over a lifetime of political campaigning, Sir Lynton has also advised some of the world’s most well-known businesses, ensuring they are armed with the right research, message and strategy with which to achieve their goals.
