Institute of Directors restructures to boost profile

The Institute of Directors has split its top PA role after the resignation of director of public affairs David Marshall, and undertaken a restructure to boost its influence in the policy community.

Marshall quit to become head of policy and comms at the ­Association of British Travel Agents in place of Keith Betton (PRWeek, 4 August).

The IoD has split his responsibilities between head of European regulatory affairs James Walsh - who becomes head of public affairs - and head of media relations Caroline Fanaroko.

The pair report to IoD director-general Miles Templeman alongside chief economist and director of policy Graeme ­Leach and head of corporate governance and employment Patricia Peter.

‘These changes allow us to achieve a much closer integration between communications and policy work,' said Fanaroko. ‘The objective is to secure a higher profile for the IoD and more influence for the policy reports and comments that we produce on behalf of our members.'
