LGA interim role for PA supremo

The Local Government Association (LGA) has app­ointed a former Charter88 lobbyist as its interim public affairs chief.

Chris Lawrence-Pietroni moves to the LGA in October as interim director of corporate strategy and public affairs. He will spend a year in the post, covering for Jenny Crighton who is on maternity leave, and then will stay on for a further six months.

Lawrence-Pietroni is currently head of policy at Hampshire County Council.

He is also a former adviser to Sky TV on corporate social responsibility and has been deputy director and acting director at Charter88 – the pressure group for constitutional and electoral reform.

Earlier this year, the LGA named Harrow Council dir­ector Paul Najsarek as interim director of corporate strategy and public affairs (PRWeek, 4 July).

This week, a spokeswoman said Naj­sarek was no longer taking up the role due to ‘staffing pressure in Harrow’.
