The MoD's QinetiQ has revamped its communications function

The Ministry of Defence's privatised weapons research body QinetiQ has revamped its communications function. This follows the departure of corporate affairs director Liz Peace, who left last month to join the British Property Federation as its director-general. QinetiQ, which is sponsoring a record-breaking attempt to take a manned balloon to 132,000 feet, is not planning to replace Peace. Her corporate duties are being handed to head of media relations Joanna Sale, while government affairs officer Abi Child will take control of that remit. According to media relations manager Douglas Millard, the revamp comes as QinetiQ seeks more publicity for its technological work in the commercial sector. QinetiQ was created last year to take over most of the work of the MoD's Defence Evaluation and Research Agency.
