Ex-Railtrack PRO heads DTZ team

Property management firm DTZ, whose portfolio includes Swiss Re’s ‘erotic gherkin’, the Grand Hotel in Birmingham and the Eden Project, has appointed ex-Railtrack strategic comms chief Caroline Mallin as head of group comms as it steps up its global expansion drive.

DTZ has 125 offices in 35 countries, but Mallin described its comms capabilities as ‘very fledgling’.

She said external relations would focus on ‘improving understanding of what the company does with opinion-formers’, particularly in the financial press.

Mallin’s three-year stint at Railtrack spanned the Hatfield and Potters Bar crashes and its 12 months in administration. She most recently spent two months as head of internal comms at Barclays UK retail at the end of 2003.
