Mensa appoints Garbett as its first full-time PR head

High IQ society Mensa has appointed its first full-time PR

head.



Caroline Garbett joins as communications manager following a stint as

marketing co-ordinator at the City of Wolverhampton College.



She attributes the body's PR boost to increased media interest in Mensa

members. Garbett is herself a member, fulfilling the group's official

requirement of an IQ in the UK's top two per cent.



'I joined Mensa nine years ago but that was not a consideration in

getting the job,' she said.



Prior to Garbett's appointment, the body deputed one person from its

nine-strong elected board to handle media relations part-time. Most

recently, this was Sylvia Herbert, an IPR member installed last week as

PRO for Severn Waste Services. Garbett's arrival has relieved Herbert of

her Mensa PR duties.



Garbett, who started her career as a features sub-editor on the

Shropshire Star, assumes responsibility for all media relations and PR

work.
