revamp will see the seven press and PR staff and three internal

communications staff joined by the design departments and the web site

team in Manchester.



Each departmental director will now report to the new communications

head for the first time. The post, which has strategic responsibility

for the press work of around 110 international offices and all internal

communications, is currently being filled by acting head of

communications Paul Docherty.
