Investment banker Lehman Brothers has revamped its in-house European communications team, creating two senior roles based at its London office.

AXA UK director of corporate affairs Stewart Prosser joins next month as executive director of marketing and corporate communications across all divisions. AXA is currently seeking his replacement.

Meanwhile, Christine Chinnery joined last month as executive director of corporate communications for the European investment banking division.

She was former head of European corporate communications at American investment bank Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette.

Prosser and Chinnery both directly report to managing directors Peter Sherratt, based in London, and New York-based Anthony B.Zehnder.

'We will be working very much together. My main role will be to make sure Lehman as a brand and its message is differentiated from other companies in the financial sector,' said Prosser.

In recent years, the most senior London-based PR role has been corporate communications manager. Vacant since September 2000, Lehman has instead used Smithfield Financial. The agency is still retained and will report to both Chinnery and Prosser.
