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,

including Superdrug.



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.
