Marina Galanti’s resignation as global communications head at the
Body Shop last month (PR Week, 20 November)has been followed by two more
senior departures from the PR department.
Media relations and internal communications head Didier Lagae announced
his resignation on Monday this week and market liaison head Andrea Fiore
left the company last week.
Neither he nor Fiore have announced their next move.
Both had reported to Galanti, who joined the Body Shop in April
Lagae was appointed by Galanti a year ago and Fiore had only been with
the company since April this year.
Galanti resigned after the company’s new chief executive, Patrick
Gournay, decided to reorganise her department and appoint a marketing
expert to oversee it.
As part of the reorganisation, Lagae and Fiore would have found
themselves reporting to the two other communications section heads
rather than to the new departmental head.
’I am looking to find something less chaotic and more empowering,’ said
