Ardi Kolah has been appointed as the Imperial Cancer Research

Fund’s first head of communications.



The post in the newly-created communications department follows the

departure of the head of PR Margaret Willson to set up as a freelance

consultant and head of marketing Alan Gosschalk’s move to the Royal

National Institute for the Deaf (PRWeek, 14 March).



Kolah is responsible for internal and external communications,

overseeing a 12-strong team across the UK in Stirling, Leeds, Oxford and

London.



He will report to director general Paul Nurse and fundraising and

communications director Peter Vicary-Smith.



’We are looking at reaching audiences that we haven’t before, including

ethnically diverse communities,’ said Kolah.



The communications department will be evaluating the brand perception of

the Fund and supporting the fundraising appeals.



Kolah continues to hold his voluntary position as head of communications

for the Society of Asian Lawyers.



He has been working as a marketing and communications consultant since

he left the Anglo Dutch IT firm Computer Management Group three weeks

before it floated on the London and Amsterdam stock exchanges in

November 1995.



Prior to his post as head of communications at CMG, Kolah worked for

Andersen Consulting and as a broadcast journalist at the BBC.
