Alstom launches hunt for agency

Energy and transport giant Alstom is looking for a UK agency as incoming ­director of communications Gary ­Follows seeks to restructure the company’s comms function.

Alstom launches hunt for agency

Follows will move to Alstom from tech outsourcer Xansa next month. He said that his search for PR support was at a very early stage, but that he hoped to appoint an agency in early 2008.

He added that Alstom has a corporate comms team in Paris and Baden, but little support in the UK, with one unnamed agency acting on a project basis.

The company, which also develops high-speed TGV trains, was an instant winner on the stock market when longtime supporter Nicolas Sarkozy was elected as French president earlier this year.
