Global ratings agency Standard and Poor’s has appointed Rebecca

Hill to a newly created role of head of European communications.



Hill was previously deputy communications director at the European Bank

for Reconstruction and Development, where she was responsible for

international press relations.



Hill’s new role has been created because of the expansion in S&P’s

operations in Europe, which now total six offices and over 350

staff.



She will initially oversee a small team, but this will fluctuate

according to the project.



Hill will report to Francois Veverka, western European managing

director, and will be responsible for implementing a communications

policy to raise S&P’s profile throughout Europe’s media. She will also

work with Penrose, Standard and Poor’s retained PR agency in London.



The agency’s communications team spans Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Milan,

Paris and Stockholm, and provides support for eastern Europe, the Middle

East and Africa.



Veverka said of the appointment: ’(It) is a direct result of strong

growth in Europe, and reflects the importance of senior level

communications’.
