Le Meridien in comms restructure

Le Meridien Hotels & Resorts, the hotel chain acquired last year by its creditors, has shaken up its comms department following a changeover in senior management earlier this year.

The group has promoted UK & Ireland PR director Julia Clark to the role of corporate PR director, following the departure of worldwide PR V-P Katie Meyer late last year. Meyer has since joined Hyatt Hotels and Hyatt International in Chicago as V-P of corporate comms.

The group has also split internal comms and employee conferences responsibilities, all of which was overseen until June by Gina Johnson.

It has promoted Kim Stringer to head of internal comms after Johnson’s departure, with employee conferencing now merged with HR.

Clark reports to Meridien CEO Robert Riley.

Le Meridien fell into difficulties last year and was acquired by its bankers.

Lehman Brothers and Starwood Holdings subsequently bought out the outstanding debt of £750m.
