Jaguar Land Rover today announces two key personnel changes to its PR and Communications team, with Chas Hallett appointed Head of Jaguar Land Rover Global Corporate PR, and Dan Connell appointed Head of Global PR and Communications for Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations.
Chas Hallett joined Jaguar Land Rover in 2015 from a senior editorial role at Haymarket to lead communications within the recently established Special Operations division. Having successfully led the Brand Communications function through the division’s establishment over the last year, Chas will join the Jaguar Land Rover global press office in Whitley to lead corporate communications globally for both brands.
The new Head of PR and Communications at Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations will be Dan Connell, previously PR Manager for Jaguar UK. Dan’s promotion will see him lead global communications strategy for Special Vehicle Operations and Jaguar Land Rover Classic, as well as programmes supporting Vehicle Personalisation and Branded Goods.
Jaguar Land Rover Chief PR Officer, Fiona Pargeter, said: “Congratulations to both Chas and Dan on their appointments in what is a very exciting period of new product introductions and business developments from Jaguar Land Rover. Both are communications experts, and they are very highly regarded across the industry. ”
Ken McConomy continues in his role as Head of Public Relations for Jaguar Land Rover UK, leading all media relations and communications on product and brand matters for the business in the company’s home market. Recruitment is now underway to replace Dan in the Jaguar UK Press Office.
These appointments are effective immediately.
