Tube Lines prepares to hire agency for PA support

Tube Lines, the London Underground infrastructure and maintenance contractor, is in talks with public affairs agencies to provide it with monitoring support.

The company is eager to keep up to speed with developments in the Greater London Authority, Department for Transport, Westminster, business and political parties.

The review is being overseen by Paul Lehmann, who joined Tube Lines as its first head of public affairs in June from Citigate PA where he was an associate director. Lehmann said organisations’ slackness in updating their websites was a factor in his need to call in external support.

Weber Shandwick’s strategic media group manages the company’s media relations.

Last month, Tube Lines completed its external affairs team with the hire of Laura Wallace from Fishburn Hedges as media relations manager.
