Consolidated Communications has poached Edward Vaizey, head of

business and financial services at Politics International, to head up a

new public affairs division.



As director of public affairs, Vaizey has been charged with establishing

the public affairs division at Consolidated and will build up a

specialist team.



The unit’s first client is Virgin Direct, which was a client of Vaizey’s

at Politics International. Consolidated handles the PR for Virgin

Direct.



’I have worked closely with Consolidated on joint projects with Virgin

Direct,’ said Vaizey. ’This move gives me the opportunity to develop my

own public affairs business.’ Public affairs and PR should work closely

together, he added.



Vaizey joined Politics International from the Public Policy Unit last

July (PR Week, 18 July 1997). He was previously a barrister and prior to

that was an advisor to former Conservative chancellor Kenneth Clark.



Consolidated Communications’ client list includes the Virgin Group,

former building society Norwich Union, Capital Radio and Blockbuster

Video.
