Birmingham University has appointed Sue Primmer as PR director. The
role has been created following the retirement of director of external
relations Frank Albrighton. His post has been axed, with all
communications now under Primmer's control. She heads a three-strong
team and will report to secretary registrar David Allen and
vice-chancellor Professor Michael Sterling. Primmer, who takes up the
post later this month, joins from Birmingham Pages, an internet business
directory and listings guide, where she was editor.
