MySpace to build Euro comms team

MySpace is to appoint a comms director for Europe as part of ambitious global growth plans.

The London-based executive is then likely to set up a dedicated European comms team for the News International-owned social working site.

MySpace launched a UK-specific site three months ago.  CEO Chris DeWolfe said last month that France and Germany were among the next targets for expansion within Europe.

The postholder will cover the UK and the Continent, reporting to Europe MD David Fischer, who was appointed just last month, and LA-based Jeff Berman, senior V-P for comms and public affairs.

Freud Communications advises MySpace on UK corporate communications, while Edelman handles a music and lifestyle brief.
