RWE Thames Water to replace Henney

RWE Thames Water is on the hunt for a divisional communications director to replace Sandy Henney – former press secretary to the Prince of Wales – who has been placed on gardening leave.

Henney, who resigned as PRO to Prince Charles in 2000 following a row with the media over the photographs of Prince William (PRWeek, 15 September 2000), ceased to work for the water firm last week although she remains on the company’s payroll, according to a press officer.

Henney joined Thames Water in the role of corporate affairs director overseeing a 25-strong team, a few months before it was bought by German giant RWE.

The role has since changed to one overseeing a four-strong team with a remit to co-ordinate TW’s PR across three divisions globally.

A PRO at Thames Water said the departure of Henney, who declined to return calls from PRWeek, was ‘amicable on both sides’.

Worldwide director of marketing and strategy Mike Moran would only say in a statement: ‘We’d like to thank her for the major contribution she has made.’
