Staff recruitment has been earmarked as a priority for incoming

Railtrack corporate affairs director Sue Clark, according to an internal

source.



The company is understaffed in two of the departments Clark will

oversee, following two departures this week in the press office and one

in public affairs. The other departments Clark will oversee are investor

relations, corporate and internal communications, events and

advertising. The full corporate affairs directorate numbers 32, although

Clark will have to appoint three new staff to reach this total.



Clark was appointed to the pounds 140,000 post after a three-month

search by head-hunters Taylor Bennett. She starts in the summer,

reporting to CEO Gerald Corbett. Clark joins after eight years at

Scottish Power, including four years as corporate affairs director.



In addition to its in-house staff, Railtrack uses Bruns-wick for

financial PR, Bell Pottinger for public affairs and The Rowland Company

for events.



Clark replaces Philip Dehurst, who left last month to become Shandwick’s

UK head.
