City & Corporate: Stan Chart woos Reuters' Farrell

Standard Chartered is to bolster its London press office with the appointment of Reuters banking correspondent Sean Farrell.

Farrell, who has been with Reuters for the last two years, is to join the Asian bank in September as head of media relations, the role originally created for BAE Systems director of communications Charlotte Lambkin.

Standard Chartered's current head of media relations, Cindy Tang, has been in the post for just five months, having formerly been South Asia head of corporate affairs, after Lambkin turned down the head of media relations post to join BAE (PRWeek, 22 October).
