appointed Thomas Glover to the newly-created post of public relations

director.



Glover will have global responsibility for corporate PR, internal

communications, press and community relations.



Glover will oversee ITT’s corporate agency, Ketchum Public Relations,

which is retained across Asia, Europe, Latin America and North

America.



He will not handle product PR, which is organised through three

subsidiaries.



He reports to Thomas Martin, vice-president and director of corporate

relations, and is based at the company’s headquarters in New York

state.



’I have been seeking someone to focus more strictly on the PR function,’

said Martin. The appointment of Glover will allow Martin to concentrate

on his other responsibilities, which include government affairs,

advertising and marketing.



ITT manufactures pumps and valves, and parts for the automotive and

defence industries. The company’s stock is traded on the New York Stock

Exchange, and in the London, Frankfurt and Paris financial markets.



Glover joins from the North American arm of Ciba Speciality Chemicals,

where he was media relations and internal communications director.

Glover helped craft the company’s communications strategy, when Ciba was

created in 1996 by the separation of Ciba Geigy and Sandoz into two new

companies, Novartis and Ciba Speciality Chemicals.



Glover was a vice-president of public relations firm James A Fyock and

Associates, based in Winston-Salem, before joining Ciba in 1994.

Previously he worked as a broadcast journalist in the US.
