Tim Clement-Jones, ex-company secretary of Kingfisher, has joined new
public affairs agency Political Context.
Clement-Jones left Kingfisher in June 1995 after eight years, five of
which were spent handling public affairs. His departure came a month
after corporate affairs director Nigel Whittaker left with a reported
near-pounds 1 million pay-off.
Political Context was established earlier this year by former BBC head
of worldwide corporate affairs Leighton Andrews (PR Week, 26 July).
At Kingfisher, Clement-Jones was involved in several City take-overs,
He previously worked for Grand Metropolitan, as legal director of its
retailing division, and as head of legal services at LWT. He was also
formerly chairman of both the Liberal Party and national crime
prevention organisation Crime Concern.
