DIARY: Ketteringham quits TSB to set up own operation

Andrew Ketteringham, head of public affairs for TSB, has quit the bank to set up his own consultancy.

Andrew Ketteringham, head of public affairs for TSB, has quit the bank

to set up his own consultancy.



His departure is the latest in an exodus of TSB communications staff

since the company merged with Lloyds Bank in December. Anita Scott, head

of TSB’s retail press office left last month while media relations

manager Graham Wallace quit in February.



Ketteringham, who will leave at the end of September, has managed TSB’s

public affairs department for seven years. His responsibilities included

government relations, sponsorship activities, corporate advertising and

communications for the bank’s 1.1 million shareholders.



However, since the merger Ketteringham’s responsibilities have been

reduced and his staff cut from ten to just three.



A prospective Parliamentary candidate for the Liberal Democrats in

Maidenhead, Ketteringham said he had not been made redundant from Lloyds

TSB. ‘I just felt it was a good opportunity to move,’ he said. ‘My plan

was to set up the company in four years time but the merger and a

forthcoming election speeded that up.’



Ketteringham’s company will be launched in October and offer public

affairs, PR and corporate design services to medium-sized firms and

housing and health organisations.



His responsibilities at TSB will be taken over by David Goldesgeyme,

Lloyds TSB’s new head of public affairs.
