Kimberly Clark to reveal EMEA corp comms director

Kimberly Clark is on the verge of naming a successor to Lyn Mayes,

who this week left her post of director of EMEA corporate


According to a source at the American paper products giant - whose

brands include Andrex toilet tissue, Huggies disposable nappies and

Kleenex - a successor has been chosen and will be in the job by

December. An announcement is expected within the next two weeks.

Mayes, who has left to live in New Zealand, reported directly to KC

president Rob van der Merwe, and joined KC in 1999.

During her time at KC she developed the company's network of agencies

across the region. This included last year's appointment of Luther

Pendragon to handle issues management and agency co-ordination across

Europe (PRWeek 26 May 2000).

UK brand and corporate communications is handled by CirKle.

Luther consultant Jo Bird, who works on the KC account, said both

agencies would handle corporate communications in the UK until Mayes'

successor is in place.
