Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors corporate comms director to leave

Sam Baxter, director of corporate comms for the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), is leaving the organisation following a comms restructure.

RICS: professional body for land, property and construction

RICS, the professional body for land, property and construction, declined to comment on whether Baxter was made redundant or if it was a resignation. Her last day is 9 December.

RICS UK media relations manager Ellie Irwin said in a statement: ‘RICS is organising its HQ corporate affairs team to meet the needs of its business plan.

‘RICS does not comment on individual employee departures.’

Baxter has been at RICS for nearly two years after joining from Sync PR where she was a director. Previous jobs include a senior PR manager position at KPMG.

Baxter’s redundancy comes after sweeping changes at the body and it is thought the various parts of her role will be distributed across the organisation.

RICS divides its comms departments into economics and research, corporate affairs, external brand, and corporate comms.

It is thought Baxter’s upcoming departure is part of a reorganisation of the corporate affairs department, with Baxter the only person leaving.

The shake-up of its comms structure comes after the body appointed Redwood Consulting in September to deliver its strategic comms and PR services.

Redwood has been asked to help RICS grow its influence across the construction, facilities and built-asset management, valuation and residential sectors.
