Posted 5 July 2017 · Add Comment

Rolls-Royce today announces the appointment of Barney Wyld as Director, Corporate Affairs.



Barney (above) will join Rolls-Royce later this year in a new enhanced role.

Barney is currently Group Director, Corporate Communications at Network Rail. He is responsible for all internal and external communications, public affairs and community contact and relations. Barney joined Network Rail from Unilever where he was Global Vice President, Communications. He was initially responsible for global media relations and digital channels and, after that, global employee engagement and stakeholder campaigns. Barney began his career as a speechwriter for a frontbench MP in the UK parliament.

The appointment follows the decision of Peter Morgan, our Director of Corporate Affairs, to leave the Group after eight years to pursue his many outside interests.

Warren East, Chief Executive, said: “Rolls-Royce has transformed considerably and although we have a great deal more to do I would like to thank Peter for his tireless effort and expert guidance and we wish him all the best. Realising our ambition to become a highly trusted, more resilient company will require further business transformation, alongside cultural and behavioural changes, and I am delighted to welcome Barney to help us as we continue on this journey.”

Ben Story, Rolls-Royce, Strategic Marketing Director, added: “We have already brought Corporate Affairs together as a global function and are now incorporating Government Relations. Barney has a great track record of leading corporate affairs teams and defining and delivering communications strategies for large organisations. We are really looking forward to welcoming him.”
