The Royal Opera House has filled the newly created post of

marketing, press and publications director with the appointment of

Richard Shaw.



Set to join in mid-April, he will report to new executive director

Michael Kaiser.



Shaw has been deputy executive director of English National Ballet since

1996, where his responsibilities currently include marketing, press, PR

and education. He joined the organisation in 1989 as public affairs

director, before being promoted in 1995.



He fills a post which was partially covered by Judy Graham, the former

director of external relations who quit in October. Since then PR has

been handled in-house by press head Amanda Jones.



The Royal Opera House is known to have contacted PR agencies last year

to refresh its image and promote its refurbished Covent Garden building

(PR Week, 13 November).
