PUBLIC SECTOR: Groom named head of DETR media centre

Jane Groom has been appointed as head of the new media centre at the Department of Transport, Environment and the Regions after the creation of the post earlier this year. The move comes in the wake of two key appointments which saw Alun Evans installed as communications director, the top PR job at the DETR, and former deputy communications director Derek Plews brought in as John Prescott’s press secretary. Groom, who was formerly head of the London press desk, will oversee the DETR press office in a role which closely resembles Plews’ old job.
