Burberry names UK comms chief

Iconic British clothing brand Burberry has appointed Justin Cooke, ex-Stella McCartney wor­ldwide PR manager, as head of its UK PR.

Cooke reports to V-P of PR worldwide Sarah Manley, and oversees a team of four UK press officers. He re­places Marsha Ilsley, who has left to go travelling.

Burberry has hit controversy of late over plans to shut a factory in south Wales, opposed by MPs and celebs.

Cooke has been replaced internally at Stella McCartney by Nathalie Wellings.
