British Airways’ international communications head, Louise

Tingstrom, is leaving the airline after only a year in the job.



Appointed in autumn 1998 to head the firm’s global communications,

Tingstrom is clearing her desk and will leave the company at the end of

November.



It is understood she was keen to leave the in-house unit to work for a

consultancy, though she is still on the BA payroll until the end of the

month.



No immediate successor has been appointed, although a shake-up of the

company’s senior management over the last few months created a

commercial PR directorate led by commercial communications manager,

Gemma Moor.



Moor assumed this new role - managing nine staff - two weeks ago, and

has been with BA for a year as media relations manager on the

newsdesk.



She reports to Nick Claydon, BA’s deputy communications director and

external communications head, who reports to board member and BA

communications director Simon Walker.



David Snelling’s job as editor of BA’s internal magazine, BA News, has

been subsumed by a new role of group editor, which is still vacant.



He has been offered a variety of roles within BA, which he has yet to

accept.
