Hill and Knowlton London has appointed head of research Sarah

Curnow to the newly-created post of head of knowledge management as part

of an improved global information-sharing initiative.



Curnow, who reports to business director Jason Gallucci, has been tasked

with leading the programme throughout its UK business, co-ordinating a

team of 26 knowledge managers.



The agency has implemented the specially-designed web-based system,

HK.Net, to replace its current intranet.



Curnow will be rolling out the faster and more efficient system and

training existing staff in the new technology.



The agency, which has 63 offices in 34 countries across the world, is

hoping the system will allow employees easier access to ideas and

information in words, pictures, video and animation.



Clients will also be able to access H&K information via the system, as a

limited access extranet function.



H&K joint chief executive Andrew Laurence said: ’The new HK.Net software

will help share knowledge among all teams worldwide. We need to be able

to provide information quickly and easily to clients across geographical

and sector boundaries.’



Curnow will continue to oversee the research department, with the help

of new senior researcher David Evans, formerly a secondary researcher at

management consultancy Andersen Consulting, which is also Curnow’s

former employer.



Evans, who worked at Andersen for nearly 12 years, was appointed by the

agency this week.
