Clark leaves Railtrack comms post

Railtrack director of corporate affairs Sue Clark has quit the

group's top communications role after 18 months.

Clark stepped down this week, but has vowed to continue helping the

Railtrack group fight to get value for shareholders, providing

communications support on an ad hoc consultancy basis.

Railtrack plc, which was put into administration last October and split

from the group function, has handed the corporate affairs director job

to former head of media Donal McCabe.

McCabe, who reports to CEO John Armitt, will not have IR

responsibilities. Clark cited the reduced remit as one of the reasons

why she left.

McCabe will oversee a team of up to 100 in corporate affairs, which

includes PR and customer relations staff.

Acting head of news Kevin Groves takes on McCabe's former

responsibilities as head of media.

Railtrack's former head of comms Lynn Harvey, who reported to Clark, is

also leaving this week to join engineering and construction firm Balfour

Beatty as corporate communications manager.

She is replaced by Caroline Mallin, formerly head of comms for major

projects and investments, who takes the slightly refocused role of head

of strategic comms.
