Queen Mary, University of London, has named Kate Hunter as its
first head of press and PR. Hunter joins in September from the Royal
Shakespeare Company, where she is senior press and PR officer. The role
was created following the departure last December of head of press and
publications Delia Ray. A separate head of publications role has also
been created. Hunter will report to director of external affairs Nigel
Relph and head a three-strong team. The university, which was previously
known as Queen Mary and Westfield, rebranded last year.
