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.
