NEWS: Prince’s Trust job proves opportune for Sanguinetti

Peter Sanguinetti, British Gas’ director of corporate affairs and the man who ran its PR operation throughout the rows over fat cat directors and job cuts, is to move into the voluntary sector.

Peter Sanguinetti, British Gas’ director of corporate affairs and the

man who ran its PR operation throughout the rows over fat cat directors

and job cuts, is to move into the voluntary sector.



He is being seconded to join the Prince’s Trust Volunteers - a scheme to

provide places on community projects for 16 to 25-year olds - as

director of fundraising from 1 July.



Launched by the Prince of Wales in 1990, the PTV has just announced a

massive expansion of its programme to reach 25,000 young people a year

by the year 2000 at an estimated cost of some pounds 25 million.



The move provides a neat solution to a thorny problem. Sanguinetti’s

future has been the subject of speculation since the arrival of John

Wybrew as board director of strategic planning, corporate affairs and

group marketing in April.



The company is due to split into two next spring and Sanguinetti’s job

will, in effect, disappear. Wybrew himself is widely tipped to take the

top corporate affairs post at TransCo - which will manage the

exploration and production side of BG’s operations.
