The Conservative Party's top marketer, Jane Keene, has quit Central
Office six months after the Tories' second landslide general election
It is not known whether she had a job to go to.
Keene, who as director of income generation and marketing was
responsible for the development of the party's fundraising efforts, has
been replaced by Vanessa Ford, who has held a number of marketing posts
for the Tories.
The Conservative Party's membership continues to hover around the
350,000 mark, despite a pledge by former leader William Hague to make
the party more accessible and desirable to non-members.
This week it emerged that the Party has hired ex-Flextech and Citibank
marketer Mike Chattey from below-the-line agency Billington Cartmell as
clubs brand manager, overseeing its range of members' clubs.
