Jon Aarons, a board director at The Communication Group, has left

the consultancy to join design company Lapot.



Aarons, who was managing director of TCG’s corporate division, left at

the end of last week after four years with the consultancy. He was one

of seven board directors.



Aarons’ role at TCG will be filled by Jonathan Rush, who was a

divisional director of the corporate division.



At Lapot, Aarons said he would be ’involved in an exciting new venture

to build up a public relations business to complement the existing

portfolio’.



Lapot’s clients include Cable and Wireless, Citibank and

InterContinental Hotels.



Meanwhile, TCG divisional director Jonathan Caine has also left the

agency.



He resigned from his position as director of government and political

affairs after two years to become director of press and public affairs

at the Cable Communications Association. Caine succeeds Roy Payne, who

recently joined Cable and Wireless Communications as head of corporate

communications.



Peter Hamilton, managing director of The Communication Group, said that

Aarons and Caine had ’decided to take advantage of new opportunities’

and that the consultancy was recruiting staff.



’We are expanding on all fronts to cope with our growth, as 1997 has

been the best year ever,’ said Hamilton. ’There is nothing about these

moves which is disturbing the normal rhythm of our company.’
