ICE comms director leaves amid costs review

A review of top level staff at the ICE has led to the departure of its communications and marketing director.

Anne Moir has taken voluntary redundancy as part of an ICE review of its top-level structure.

ICE chief operating officer Andrew Ruffles cited a “significant fall” in member subscriptions and profits from ICE commercial arm Thomas Telford as part of the reason for the review.

“As with any organisation we are trying to ensure we operate in the most efficient way possible. Our key objective in these tough times is to ensure we can continue providing core member services effectively,” said Ruffles.

“Unfortunately the ICE has not been immune to the effects of the economic downturn. We wish Anne all the best in the future and would like to thank her for her commitment to developing the ICE’s communications and marketing strategy over the last eight years.”

Director of communications and marketing, Moir joined the ICE in 2002. She had previously led marketing campaigns for international firms including Cable & Wireless and Nortel. Moir will continue to carry out consulting work for the ICE.

Ruffles stressed that the review was not going to lead to widespread redundancies and was about ensuring ICE operates in the most efficient way in austere times. The final outcomes of the review will be announced later this month.
