Cable company Telewest is to lose its corporate communications and

investor relations director Ian Hood, who is leaving the company after

six years to set up on his own.



Following Hood’s departure in July, Telewest will be restructuring its

PR department bringing it under the auspices of the new marketing

director Philip Jansen who starts later this month.



There are currently no plans to recruit a director of corporate

relations.



Hood’s role in investor relations, however, will be handled by Parm

Sandhu who joins the company in June from the position of head of

planning and analysis at On Digital.



Hood will provide communication services to companies undertaking public

consultations surrounding new infrastructure developments. He will focus

on companies in the media sector.



Telewest, with 1.4 million customers is the biggest cable operator in

the country. The company said last month that it was exploring options

for co-operation with Cable and Wireless Communications, which is the

biggest cable company in terms of potential customers.
