The business groups comprise: Textiles and Washrooms; Pest Control; Tropical Plants; Electronic Security; City Link; Facilities Services; and Asia-Pacific. Some of the 15 comms staff are understood to have been redeployed by the business units. But Rentokil would not say how many have been made redundant.
Lisa Williams remains head of investor relations and Rentokil continues to retain Brunswick as its corporate and financial comms agency.
The move comes three months after Rentokil group director of corporate affairs Charles Grimaldi was ousted (PRWeek, 24 February). The post is currently under review.
