The Welsh Development Agency has appointed Owain Betts as media
relations executive for its Mid and North Wales divisions. He joined the
newly-created agency this month from the Shropshire Star where he worked
for four years, most recently as its Welsh affairs editor. Prior to this
he was the mid-Wales correspondent for the Western Mail. Betts’s new
role will be to promote the agency’s schemes and initiatives to attract
inward investment into the area.
