Price Waterhouse’s head of media relations Mike Hogan is to quit the

accountancy firm for an external affairs job at Shell International.



The former TV journalist and Advertising Association external affairs

boss will join Shell International at the end of August on an estimated

salary of pounds 120,000.



The oil company refused to supply his exact job title but confirmed that

Hogan will report to its head of external affairs, Karen de Segundo as

reported in PR Week three weeks ago.



The job, as de Segundo’s number two, will focus on issues management and

corporate reputation for Shell, whose image was dented by last year’s

Nigeria crisis.



Prior to joining Price Waterhouse in March 1994, Hogan, 49, was director

of external affairs at the Advertising Association.



However he lost that post when the association’s European lobbying funds

dried up in 1993.



During his career as a reporter Hogan won a BAFTA award for television

business journalism. He edited Channel 4’s The Business Programme, was

deputy editor of Panorama and presented the BBC’s The Financial World

Tonight.
