Regan Communications CEO George Regan is engaged. The powerhouse publicist told his staff today that he plans to marry Lubna McInnis, an executive with Kimpton Hotels, owner of the Nine Zero, Hotel Marlowe, and the Onyx. The couple - he is 59, she's in her early 30s - have attended several events together in recent months, including a party on Nantucket and the Celtics kick-off dinner in October. Regan, a onetime aide to former mayor Kevin White whose firm represents companies ranging from Bank of America to the Boston Celtics, has been engaged at least once before, but has never married. (Former flames include Channel 7's Darlene McCarthy and TV newsgal-turned-artist Dixie Whatley.) Prior to working for Kimpton Hotels, McInnis was chief concierge at Boston's Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Wondering about the ring? Those who've seen it say it's sizeable - an emerald-cut diamond of over two carats. A staffer who was summoned to today's meeting say the veteran spinmeister joked that he'll have to raise his rates just to pay for the rock. (He also quipped that he's poised to make two business acquisitions in the new year, and "a third that (he's) in love with.") Attempts to reach McInnis, who grew up in Wales and speaks with a thick Welsh accent, were unsuccessful yesterday. Reached on his cell phone, Regan declined to comment. We're told the couple will trade "I dos" this summer at the Willowbend Country Club in Mashpee, where Regan has a place.
