McNamara joins Nuclear body NIA

The Nuclear Industry Association (NIA) has hired John McNamara, British Energy media and PR manager, as its first head of media and PR.

The appointment comes as it lobbies for a new generation of nuclear power stations to be built.

McNamara has been acting in the role since its creation in June, on secondment from British Energy (PRWeek, 22 June), which is hunting for his replacement.

Reporting to CEO Keith Parker, he will be the body's principal spokesperson. 

The NIA's previous top PRO, media manager Ruth Stanway, left in April.
