Mysterious exit for pharma boss

Bayer Schering Pharma has axed its tops comms role following the departure of Helen Bray.

The company would not comment on where Bray has moved to and she could not be reached as PRWeek went to press. Insiders suggest she is moving to a civil service post.

Bray joined Schering Health Care as head of corporate affairs in 2004 (PRWeek, 17 September 2004). She was made head of marketing and sales support, responsible for overseeing the entire PR operation.

Bayer Schering overhauled its UK PR operation last year (PRWeek, 12 September 2007). The company was one of six divisions in the new Bayer Group, which was formed last July, after the takeover of fellow German pharma group Schering.

Bayer Schering said Bray will not be replaced. Comms and PR manager Sophia Cadman has taken over Bray's comms responsibilities.
