New PR chief for Crossrail

Louise Brooker-Carey has been recruited as Head of External Affairs at Crossrail.

The one time comms supremo at Tube Lines rejoins the rail industry from the Chartered Management Institute where she was Director of Policy and Research (Interim).

Louise will lead the public affairs and external communications effort at Crossrail. She will report to newly appointed chief executive Andrew Wolstenholme, who takes over the top job in August.

Terry Hill CBE, former Arup Chairman also joins the Board – on 1 September 2011.

Brooker-Carey faces a challenging assignment at Crossrail. Although a popular project Londoners are understandably concerned at disruption to roads and railways caused by the tunnelling as it progresses.

Louise can be expected to draw upon her experience as an Internal Communications Manager at London Underground. She has a degree in Ancient History and Archaeology from Birmingham University.
