Kitty Ussher’s background

The Managing Director of Tooley Street Research, Kitty is well-placed at the convergence between politics and economics to discuss a range of issues related to these areas, including Brexit and the rise in political risk for businesses.

Since stepping down from parliament in 2010, she has devised and managed public policy research projects, first as chief economist and director of Demos (2010-11) and then on a freelance basis, including for the Smith Institute, the Centre for London and the Social Market Foundation.

In 2013, she set up Tooley Street Research to grow an independent research company. She is also the Chief Economic Adviser to Portland and a member of the Financial Services Consumer Panel and TheCityUK’s Independent Economists’ Group.

Prior to entering parliament, Kitty worked as an Economist at the Economist Intelligence Unit (1997-9), Special Adviser to Patricia Hewitt at the Department for Trade and Industry (2001-4) and served as a Councillor in the London Borough of Lambeth (1998-2002).

She holds an MSc in Economics from Birkbeck College, University of London, an undergraduate degree in Politics and Economics from Balliol College, Oxford and is also very slowly studying modules in statistics and data analysis through the Open University.

Kitty is a regular contributor to BBC Today programme and Newsnight. In 2016, she was a judge for the influential Comment Awards.
