Gareth Headon joins the state-owned savings bank as head of media and public relations, having spent six years at Eurostar most recently working on its successful launch of services from St Pancras International.
He has built a decade of experience in high profile communications roles, including working at the Which? magazine/Consumers' Association press office and at pan-European PR agency Johnson King.
Headon is charged with devising and implementing strategic and tactical PR programmes to communicate and promote the NS&I brand.
Additionally, NS&I has promoted Gill Stephens to senior media relations manager. After two years at the organisation, she will now lead the media relations team of three, reporting directly to Headon. Headon will focus on communications strategy and corporate communications.
