Current editor of Event and Media Week magazine Jeremy King will take on the role of the O2 Arena’s new director of communications as of December.
The role was created following a review of senior management team posts across the business. King's role replaces a comms manager post formerly held by Stephen Farmer, reports PR Week.
"The biggest challenge is to give the O2 personality without taking away any of its success," said King.
King is expected to create a comms strategy for the venue, which was put up for sale by Anschutz Entertainment Group in September.
