Jo Thomas, National Magazine Company’s director of public relations, is leaving to pursue a career in television production.

Jo Thomas, National Magazine Company’s director of public relations, is

leaving to pursue a career in television production.



Thomas, who heads a nine-strong PR department, joined NatMags in 1989

from Biss Lancaster. She resigned in August but her leaving date will

depend on when her successor is appointed.



Thomas, 31, said that as she has been working on NatMags’ ‘masthead

programming’ - magazine-inspired TV shows - her career change was not

that dramatic. She added that she had been speaking to several people in

TV but had not yet accepted a post.



News of Thomas’ departure comes several weeks after her number two, PR

manager Suzan Imre, left to move to Australia.



Imre, who had been with the company for more than seven years, had

focused on Harpers and Queen, Good Housekeeping and Esquire.



Thomas said that Imre would probably not be replaced until her own

successor was in place.
