Eurostar appoints new communications director

Eurostar has appointed Simon Montague as its new director of communications. He replaces Paul Charles, who joins Virgin Atlantic as director of corporate communications next week. Montague currently works as a consultant at corporate communications consultancy Fishburn Hedges and will join Eurostar in April, reporting to commercial director Nick Mercer. He joined Fishburn Hedges in 2004, having been the transport correspondent for BBC News since 1997. Previously, he covered transport for BBC South East and before that he was news editor of New Civil Engineer magazine. Commenting on the appointment, Eurostar chief executive Richard Brown said: “We welcome Simon to Eurostar at an important time in the development of the business. His strong transport background will help us as we prepare for the move to St. Pancras in 2007. We also thank Paul for his enormous contribution to our growth in recent years and wish him continuing success at Virgin Atlantic.” Montague added: “I am delighted to be joining Eurostar at such an exciting time. I have admired the company's progress and look forward to playing my part as Eurostar continues to grow its traveller numbers and market share.”
