Barney Wyld, group director of corporate communications at Network Rail, is to join Rolls-Royce later this year.
The appointment follows the decision of Rolls-Royce’s director of corporate affairs Peter Morgan to leave the group after eight years. Wyld will have the same job title as Morgan, but the role will be enhanced. At Network Rail, Wyld is responsible for all internal and external communications, public affairs and community contact and relations. He was previously global vice-president, communications, at Unilever.
