LONDON: MCI Worldcom International has poached BT Global's European PR head to lead its communications outside the Americas.
Angela Baker left BT last week and will join MCI Worldcom as corporate communications director, overseeing media relations, PR, and investor relations.
She will have around 20 employees working for her in Worldcom offices across the globe.
Baker takes over from corporate communications head Mark Weeks, who has been promoted to external relations director, a role in which he will oversee PR and marketing, including advertising outside the Americas.
Weeks has worked closely with the company's US-based group PR head, Frank Walter. Baker will report to Weeks.
'Angela's job is to ensure the multiplicity of programs work to the same message,' said Weeks.
