NEW YORK - The Savoy Group of hotels has appointed the first
in-house PR chief for its New York office. Anita Cotter, head of PR at
the New York Palace Hotel for the last five years, will become director
of PR for the Americas at the end of the month. Her brief covers PR and
media relations for the US and Canada, and will eventually expand to
South America. Cotter will run PR single-handedly and effectively
replaces Savoy’s external US agency, Middleton and Gendron.
