Schering-Plough in UK PR revamp

US pharma giant Schering-Plough has appointed Alan Kane to its first executive-level corporate affairs role for the UK and Ireland.

Kane, formerly senior corporate and external affairs manager, took up the role – whose title is still being discussed – this week, saying he wanted to develop S-P’s first UK ‘fully functioning corporate affairs unit’.

The role will focus on product comms, Kane said.S-P’s UK corporate and external relations have formerly been handled from within the medical department but three staff are to move to a separate unit, reporting to Kane.

S-P medical director Dr Paul Quartey has taken up a pan-European medical role.

Kane has worked at S-P for four and a half years and spent the second half of 2003 as acting director of economic and public affairs in the US.
