Consolidated Communications’ new public affairs division has
poached James Boyd from Politics International, four months after the
operation was set up by former Politics International consultant, Edward
Vaizey (PR Week, 5 June). Boyd, 33, joins Consolidated as deputy
director, reporting to Vaizey. A trained tax and trusts lawyer, Boyd
worked at Ludgate public affairs for two years, leaving as associate
director, before joining Politics International.
