City & Corporate: Prescott in Regus role

The former PR chief of the Rugby Football Union, Richard Prescott, has re-emerged at global office space firm Regus.

He has been appointed group head of comms on an interim basis, covering for Nathalie Renson, who is on maternity leave. He had been England's media director at the RFU for 14 years until 2011.

Regus group comms director Andrew Brown explained: 'We're trying to change perceptions from being seen as a service office provider to being seen as a provider of flexible work ... Richard is a fresh pair of eyes and has the gravitas, experience and knowledge to help the team develop and communicate the firm's growth.'

Prescott, who has also worked at Whitbread and Cable & Wireless, will manage the firm's international PR programme.
