CellPoint nets Kuzminski for corp comms position

Wireless cellular technology company CellPoint has named its first

worldwide director of corporate communications.

Hamish Kuzminski joins the Nasdaq-listed firm from IBM software

subsidiary Lotus Development Corporation (LDC), where he held the

communications manager UK and Ireland post for three years.

His departure comes at the same time as an announcement that the LDC

communications operation is disbanding and the team of ten is merging

with the main IBM UK press office. Kuzminski's role will now, however,

be scrapped.

'Although CellPoint is a US company, current restrictions in the

domestic licensing and telemetry structure means Europe is its main

market,' said Kuzminski, who will be responsible for both external and

internal communications, and who will also undertake marketing, PA and

website briefs.

He will report to CellPoint vice-president Lynn Duplessis, who

previously held all communications responsibilities.

'I currently have a team of three but this will expand with aggressive

growth,' he said.

CellPoint recently appointed Maidenhead-based technology PR firm

Noiseworks (PRWeek, 23 March) to handle its media and press interests.

Noiseworks is also the incumbent agency at LDC.

Noiseworks MD Nick Hayes said his agency, which has been retained by LDC

for eight years, is to continue working through the transitional next

six months, when, he said 'we will find out if we are to be retained

under IBM contracts or asked to re-pitch, or otherwise'.

CellPoint, which is based in Surrey, builds commercial and business

software systems.
