Public Information Officer (PIO)


Explanation:
This would be a somewhat more formal title and might be a better fit in a formal context.
A spokesperson may also be a celebrity who appears in a company's advertisements (e.g., Jamie Lee Curtis is the spokesperson for VoiceStream, a US cell phone carrier, but I would certainly not refer to her as the VoiceStream's Pressesprecherin).



The Public Information Officer (PIO) is the department’s spokesperson for the media, both on and off the scene. The PIO is also the department’s interagency and neighborhood liaison. As Neighborhood Liaison, the PIO represents the department in the city’s four neighborhood areas, working with neighborhood associations on community meetings and events.

As a member of the Commissioner’s staff, the Public Information Officer (PIO) is responsible for the release of accurate and timely information to insure the public is well-informed on the services, accomplishments and initiatives of Chester County government. The PIO manages the internal communications program of county government to insure that employees are well informed of policies, procedures, and events relevant to the county’s business.
