BT has appointed BT retail general counsel Andrew Parker as company secretary, after moving former secretary Larry Stone into a new public affairs role.
Parker will assume the role of company secretary from 1 April. He takes over from Larry Stone, who will oversee BT's global lobbying efforts in a newly created public affairs position.
Gordon Moir, BT Global Services general counsel for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific, said: "Larry will be working with our teams across the globe, driving out our core messages to ministries."
BT has been strengthening its public affairs team worldwide. The move comes shortly after the company shifted US general counsel Kristen Verderame into a leading role at the DC public affairs department.
Parker has held several high-profile roles within the BT group, including general counsel of BTopenworld and head of commercial policy. Moir said he expected an announcement on Parker's replacement as BT Retail general counsel next week.
