Freuds director scheduled to land as comms head for airline Monarch

Page takes up the job on Wednesday, and will report to chief people officer Pauline Prow. The role incorporates both external and internal comms, with a team of six reporting to Page.

In his time at Freuds, he worked with food manufacturer Mars and Walmart-owned retailer Asda.

Prior to this, he worked for Burson-Marsteller with clients including Danone and Royal Dutch Shell, and before that for Launch PR, where he led on the firm's work with BP.

Page said: "Monarch is an established player in a progressive and dynamic industry. I’m delighted that I’ll be part of its future and look forward to playing a key role in addressing the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead."

Monarch has five UK bases – London Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds-Bradford and Luton, the latter being its HQ. Its mostly European routes offer seven million seats annually.

The airline works on consumer PR with Big Dog, a Leicester agency hired in 2014 under its previous, pre-merger name of Big Communications.
