City & Corporate: The Week in the City

FTI Consulting has recruited Lucy Morrison Phillips, formerly of GE Healthcare, as senior vice-president in its strategic comms practice.

In her eight years with GE Healthcare, she also held a variety of comms leadership roles that included serving as the internal comms leader for three functions and six GE corporate officers, including the current CEO of GE Healthcare.

Rostrum Communications, the London-based corporate b2b PR agency, has appointed Michael Kahn as head of content. He joins from Chazbrooks Communications, where he was a director. The move follows a restructure of the management team, with Nick Bolshaw taking over as MD and Mark Houlding named as the firm's CEO.

College Hill advised Snoozebox, a company specialising in temporary hotel accommodation, on the firm's initial public offering on AIM. Robert Breare, the brainchild behind Snoozebox and a serial entrepreneur in the leisure sector, appointed College Hill without a tender process.

Ipsos Mori has revealed in a recent survey that 29 per cent of heads of comms were sceptical about whether their senior management understood the impact good reputation had on the bottom line.
