Pharma giant Wyeth has recruited a former comms manager at AstraZeneca as corporate affairs manager.

Karen Tait has replaced Julie Jenkins and is to promote products such as Efexor, Zoton and Rapamune across the UK and the Republic of Ireland. She oversees relations with agencies such as Red Door Communications, Virgo Health PR and The Workhouse.

Tait worked at AZ in Luton, where she was a communications manager handling PR for gastro-intestinal and oncology products, for 18 months.

Prior to AZ, she worked at Pharmacia, where she was head of external communications, and Searle. Jenkins left to become a freelance consultant (PRWeek, 9 July).

Tait reports to UK corporate affairs director Gill Markham, who leads an eight-strong comms team at Wyeth’s UK headquarters in Berkshire.
