Ex-Hilton PR boss Clark claims top Le Meridien post

Ex-Hilton UK and Ireland PR director Julia Clark has taken the top

PR post at Le Meridien hotels.

The position of global PR director was vacated in June when incumbent

Phoebe Hamilton made a 'quality of life' decision to leave London after

less than 18 months in the job.

Her role originally encompassed only UK and Ireland but was expanded to

global communications last October. The post reports to group marketing

director Alan Briere, and sees Clark assume responsibility for external

and corporate communications.

Clark left the Hilton Group when Leslie McGibbon was promoted to a new

position of communications director following an organisational review

(PRWeek, 2 March). She left the firm shortly afterwards, having been

handed a remit to oversee PR for the group's London hotels by the

reshuffle, reporting to McGibbon.

Until its sale to Japanese investment bank Nomura earlier this year, Le

Meridien had been part of Forte, the UK's largest hotel group.

Le Meridien operates 125 hotels worldwide with a further 19 scheduled to

open next year.
