Morgan takes over next week from Robin Pauley, who moves to the new position of European affairs president, reporting to BT CEO Ben Verwaayen.
Morgan, who has risen to the top of BT’s comms division just five months after joining the company from Weber Shandwick, said Verwaayen had asked him to review BT’s in-house group comms function, which comprises a ten-strong press office in London plus ten PROs in Scotland and Brussels.
BT’s group comms covers corporate social responsibility, government affairs, and analyst and media relations.
Morgan said the review would not affect comms in BT’s main divisions, BT
Retail and BT Wholesale, which have their own agency arrangements. The group manages its financial and corporate comms in-house.
Morgan joined BT after three years as a director at Weber Shandwick, prior to which he spent 20 years at the BBC.
