Media group UBM to hire for top role

United Business Media, the group that owns PR Newswire and trade magazine publisher CMP Media, is on the hunt for a head of communications.

The search comes ahead of the imminent exit of incumbent director of comms Michael Waring. He is leaving at the end of next month to join FTSE 250 property developer Slough Estates as its first director of corporate communications.

Slough Estates CEO Ian Coull told PRWeek that Waring would review all aspects of the business, including its retained relationship with corporate financial comms shop Shared Value.

Waring joined United Business Media in 2000 as head of investor relations from BAA.
