'Jo has made a fantastic contribution to MHP Communications over the past three years and we wish her all the very best in her new role.'

Vaughton said: 'The past three years at MHP working on big brand campaigns for multi-nationals, such as American Express, Disney and Coca-Cola, has been incredibly enjoyable and stands me in great stead for my next challenge at IHG. I'm looking forward to returning to a global role, combining my passions for brand building and travel.'
