Adrian Hodges, head of corporate communications at The Body Shop, is to quit.

Adrian Hodges, head of corporate communications at The Body Shop,

is to quit.



The Body Shop is currently reviewing its communications functions,

following the arrival of head of communications, Marina Galanti in April

(PRWeek, 18 April).



Her post was created in a bid to co-ordinate the company’s global

communications.



’The catalyst for my decision is the restructuring and the decision to

bring the communications and consumer marketing functions together,’

said Hodges.



’I wish to concentrate more on issues and I’ll be able to do that better

elsewhere, combined with my medium-term goal of working abroad.’



Hodges said his plans for the future include improving his understanding

of the business climate in South America, but was reluctant to reveal

details.



He joined the health and beauty chain in early 1996 after five years as

director of communications at Business in the Community.
