corporate communications department.



Gonring becomes Baxter’s VP of corporate communications, a post that is

now part of the company’s 20-strong operations-management team. Once

Gonring departs, Andersen CEO Jim Wadia will personally oversee

marketing until a replacement is found.



The chance to build a communications operation made Baxter a very

attractive option, Gonring said. ’I’ve never been a maintenance guy,’ he

said. ’The Baxter job is a build opportunity in my mind.’



In addition to internal and external PR, Gonring will assume

responsibility for Web-based communications and for communications in

Baxter’s business units - two areas for which the VP of communications

was previously not responsible.
