Cable company Telewest is to lose its corporate communications and
investor relations director Ian Hood, who is leaving the company after
six years to set up on his own.
Following Hood’s departure in July, Telewest will be restructuring its
PR department bringing it under the auspices of the new marketing
director Philip Jansen who starts later this month.
There are currently no plans to recruit a director of corporate
Hood’s role in investor relations, however, will be handled by Parm
Sandhu who joins the company in June from the position of head of
planning and analysis at On Digital.
Hood will provide communication services to companies undertaking public
consultations surrounding new infrastructure developments. He will focus
on companies in the media sector.
Telewest, with 1.4 million customers is the biggest cable operator in
the country. The company said last month that it was exploring options
for co-operation with Cable and Wireless Communications, which is the
biggest cable company in terms of potential customers.
