NOT FOR PUBLICATION - CHANGES TO GROUPE RENAULT UK PRESS OFFICE

NOT FOR PUBLICATION

Dear colleague,

There are several important changes to our press office team that I wanted to update you on. 

Firstly, after more than 19 years in the role, Lisa Haworth-Langford is leaving Groupe Renault UK today to focus on family life. Lisa has looked after the press fleet and launches for all that time, overseeing dozens of new model launches and arranging many thousands of press fleet loans, and always providing an unfailingly-efficient and dedicated service to our media colleagues. I’d like to thank Lisa, on behalf of Groupe Renault UK, and our PR colleagues in Paris, for the extraordinary commitment she has given over the years. We are going to miss Lisa greatly and wish her all the very best for whatever she chooses to do in the future. 

I’m delighted to announce that Charlie Roper, who has been with us as Press Relations Coordinator since April 2017, has taken over all press fleet responsibilities from Lisa in the new role of Press Fleet & VIP Relations Manager. Charlie will already be known to many of you and I am confident will carry on providing an excellent press vehicle experience.

In another important change to the team, after nearly three years with Groupe Renault UK, Chloe Yemm, Product & Corporate Communications Manager, has left to pursue another motoring PR role within a communications agency. Chloe has been an invaluable and enthusiastic team member and will be missed by all of us here and we wish her all the very best for her future career. Chloe’s successor will be announced in due course.

Finally, I’d like to welcome Ciaran Sands to the team as Communications Assistant on a one-year industrial placement from Leeds University. Ciaran will be supporting the department across communications and events. Ciaran replaces Emma Stacey who returns to complete her studies at Bath University after doing an excellent job in the team here for the last year – I’m sure she has a very bright future ahead of her in whatever she chooses to do.

A replacement for my previous Press Relations Manager role will be announced in the coming weeks.

Best regards,

Matt
