Another comms chief quits Boots

Alliance Boots director of comms Donal ­McCabe has become the third comms chief to leave the company within 12 months.

The chemist was recently acquired by private equity firm KKR and is now using KKR’s financial PR agency, Gavin Anderson, to handle corporate press enquiries.

McCabe will become ­director of corporate ­comms for FTSE 100 property company Land Securities.

McCabe became Alliance Boot’s top communicator when director of corporate affairs Emma Byrne left after just six months (PRWeek, 7 June). Byrne took over from Boots stalwart Jane Mayled.
