The University of Warwick has appointed Ian Rowley as its new
director of public affairs. The former Royal Shakespeare Company head of
press and PR replaces John Read who has moved to become director of
corporate affairs for the English and Welsh Cricket Board. Rowley, who
starts in mid-July, will report to university registrar Jonathan
Nicholls, and will head a team of three people. His role involves
developing a media strategy and a clear brand identity for the
university both in the UK and abroad.
