Rail firm calls in Ruse for media

London & Continental Railways (LCR) – the firm behind the Channel Tunnel rail link and developer of a new route into a rebuilt St Pancras – has installed Ben Ruse as interim head of media.

The ex-Blue Rubicon associate director and Freud Communications account director is on secondment  from The London Communications Agency, which he joined last week.

Reporting to the agency's MD, Robert Gordon Clark, and LCR corporate comms head Jon Teeman, Ruse oversees a three-strong team. 'Ben will oversee a media programme up to the re-opening of St Pancras in 2007, and will work with LCR's PA firm Portland PR,' said Clark.

Waterloo International will close when St Pancras International opens.
