WS keeps top job in-house

Weber Shandwick has promoted internally to replace Michael Prescott as head of its corporate and public affairs practices.

Prescott quit in December to become group comms director for BT Europe. WS has now promoted director Jo-Ann Robertson to be its UK head of corporate communications and public affairs.

WS European CEO Colin Byrne said: 'We looked around the market, but decided we had a great potential leader in-house. However, we are looking to strengthen our corporate and public affairs teams with senior outside talent.'

Rod Clayton has been promoted to head of corporate and crisis comms, EMEA.
