These new trustees bring a wealth of industry experience; they know what it takes to succeed, and what support people need to truly thrive in advertising and media.

“Kerry and Nigel are recognised and highly-regarded voices in the industry and their guidance and expertise will be of immense value to NABS going forward.

“Andrew is also a well-known and highly-respected figure when it comes to the commercial and financial realities of our industry and we are all the stronger for having him on board. We would also like to extend enormous thanks to Robin for all his tireless work and efforts on our part and in ensuring our finances are robust.”

Speaking of her new appointment, Kerry Glazer said: “I’ve been a long-time supporter of NABS, having been part of the support committee for the past ten years – so to be appointed as a trustee is a real honour. The advertising and media industry is a cornerstone of UK business and home to some of the world’s most exciting talent.

“The role of NABS in ensuring support for those who work in the industry cannot be stressed enough and I am really looking forward to working closely with the senior team over the coming years. We have an opportunity to help safeguard the future for everyone who works in this incredible industry.”
