Ian Taylor set to be confirmed as West Ham’s new Head of Communication
Ian Taylor is set to be confirmed as West Ham United’s new Head of Communication, according to ExWHUemployee.
The reliable Hammers insider claimed on the West Ham Way Patreon that the Director of Marketing and Communications at London Irish Rugby Club will start his job in the middle of March, replacing Ben Campbell, who was in the position from August 2020 till January.
Campbell confirmed on Twitter after the Crystal Palace game on New Year day that he will be taking up a role as Head of Communications at PGMOL after four-and-a-half years with West Ham.
Taylor boasts of a lot of experience in the field having also worked at Queens Park Rangers for over 12 years, and he could prove to be the perfect replacement in such an important role.
Campbell was Senior Press Officer and Head of Football Media Relations before becoming Head of Communications at the London Stadium outfit, and his successor has a huge job on his hands.
Taylor worked as Press Officer, Press Manager and Head of Media and Communications at QPR, so he has quite the experience.
He could soon be dealing directly with Irons co-owner Daniel Kretinsky – who has been tipped to complete a full takeover going forward – but he needs to take some tips from Campbell, who managed the club’s PR well working for David Sullivan, David Gold and Karren Brady.
West Ham do not have a lot to deal with these days when it comes to off-the-pitch crisis, with David Moyes’ inspiring them to become top-four challengers, and that should make things easier for the incoming Head of Communications.
