BAE Systems’ communications after Locksley Ryan has announced he is

leaving to join financial agency Brunswick as a partner.



Ryan’s decision to move from corporate to consultancy follows five years

with British Aerospace which successful completed its merger with

Marconi Electronic Systems at the end of last year. According to Ryan,

the completion of the merger was the ideal time to make the break.



Ryan takes up his new position in March. At Brunswick he will be one of

an estimated 20 partners and will report directly to MD Alan Parker.



’I have known Alan for a number of years and liked what Brunswick was

doing,’ he said. ’It is too early to say which areas I will be covering

at Brunswick.’



As a result of the move Ryan is to resign his position as a

non-executive director of Burson-Marstellar, a position he has held for

the past five years.



At BAE Systems Ryan headed a team of 60 and reported to John Weston,

chief executive. ’No decision has yet been made about his replacement,’

a spokesperson for BAE Systems said.



Brunswick recently lost one of its most senior partners Lucas van Praag

to Goldman Sachs where he will be director of corporate affairs for

Europe (PR Week 7 January).
