West Midlands news head for COI

The Central Office of Information (COI) has appointed a regional news and PR director for the West Midlands.

Mark Chambers joins later this month from his current position as head of marketing at Lantra, the sector skills council for the environmental and land-based sector.

One of the COI's current strategies is to have more regional agencies on its roster as a way of improving its reach.

Chambers will lead 13 staff who cover a wide range of clients, including the Prime Minister's Office, the Department of Communities and Local Government, the Highways Agency and Clarence House.

The West Midlands office is part of a UK-wide network of eight regional offices, and is poised to become the hub of the COI's media training and civil contingencies offering.
