UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) PR chief Beth Evans will bring
in Alan Davies as her number two at the end of September to fill the
newly-created role of deputy communications head. Davies will
co-ordinate the communications strategy for a programme of
decommissioning UK nuclear facilities. The role reports to Evans but
will also include daily liaison with the senior management team and
external bodies including the Department of Trade and Industry. Davies
will deputise for Evans and will take day-to-day responsibility for the
operations of the six-strong press office.
Davies joins the UKAEA from Welsh water company Hyder, where he was
media relations manager and public affairs head.
