Chris Taylor will join IPC as corporate affairs executive, to develop a corporate PR programme and work on its corporate and social responsibility programme. He joins from the trade title Media Week, where he is deputy editor, and will start at IPC in October.
Joining as a corporate communications executive is Edwina Jenner, currently new business and PR manager at Mindshare. She will work on corporate press relations for IPC.
Both Taylor and Jenner will report to the director of corporate communications, Julie York.
York said: "IPC has always had an influential role in the UK media landscape, but since our acquisition by AOL Time Warner last year, there has been an even greater need for us to deliver a consistent and inspiring message to all of our key audiences. These two new positions will give us the scope to really make some more noise."
IPC publishes titles including 19, Chat and InStyle.
