FTSE 100 telecoms firm Energis has ended its three-month search for
a group corporate PR chief, taking on former Brunswick PRO Gavin
Partington joins as director of corporate communications, a role created
last summer as part of a major PR review overseen by director of
strategy and marketing Christine Holgate. Partington heads a team of six
and reports to Holgate.
The former senior consultant with Brunswick - and ex-political editor at
GMTV - takes on a remit covering corporate PR, internal comms and
industry analyst relations.
As a group-wide role, Partington will oversee corporate communications
across the UK, The Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany.
Holgate, formerly MD of media relations and external communications at
JP Morgan Chase & Co, joined Energis last year in place of Geoffery
Cheetham, who retired.
Former head of marketing and communications Ross Sampson left last year
following Holgate's review, which saw his role axed and the creation of
two posts: director of corporate comms, now held by Partington, and
branding director, handed last year to Sandra Malone.
