PUBLIC SECTOR: Warwickshire names first comms head

Warwickshire County Council is to bring in Lucy Vincent from the Audit Commission as its first communications head. The council created the role to bring a strategic focus to its communications. Vincent will have day-to-day responsibility for the four-strong press office headed by Anne Goodey and will also oversee the output of the marketing and PR functions in each of the separate council services which currently have no strategic co-ordination. Her brief is to improve internal and external PR as the council shapes up for the introduction of the Government’s Best Value regime. The post reports to county solicitor David Carter, who works in the chief executive’s office.
