Dorset County Council’s new communications head, Sue Hyde, has
appointed Daragh Croxson as the first press and PR manager in the
council’s revamped communications department. Croxson joins from BBC
Radio Sheffield, where he was head of news, and will report to Hyde. His
appointment will bring Hyde’s team up to full strength and mark the end
of a restructure of the council’s communications which has seen the
function grow in the past six months from a one-man department to a
five-strong team responsible for all aspects of corporate communication.
