Natalie Bell joins NABS as Trustee

Natalie Bell joins NABS as Trustee as Keith Fowler steps down after 44 years; new co-chairs announced for NABS’ flagship fundraiser Stranger than Summer.

Natalie Bell, CEO, Manning Gottlieb OMD, has joined the board of industry charity NABS as its newest Trustee.

Natalie will sit on NABS’ executive committee, helping the charity in its mission to advance the mental wellness of everybody in adland.

Natalie’s appointment comes at a critical time for NABS. The organisation is currently evolving its services in response to the findings of last year’s All Ears community consultation, which revealed that over 70% of our industry want more to be done about mental health at work. Demand for NABS services continues to rise, with more than 4500 calls made to its Advice Line last year.

Natalie joins the NABS board as Keith Fowler MBE, NABS’ longest-serving board member, steps down after an incredible 44-year tenure. Keith served as both a director and trustee and spearheaded the introduction of NABS’ Advice Line. His notable career outside of NABS included time spent as CEO of EURO RSCG Marketing Group and executive chairman of Edman Communications.

Natalie is one of the industry’s most influential names. She brings a wealth of experience in digital strategy, media and leadership to the NABS Board and we know that she’ll help us as we evolve our mission to support all adlanders

Sue Todd, CEO, NABS

Mental wellness has always been a hugely important area for me both professionally and personally. From an early age I experienced first-hand the impact that mental health challenges can have on individuals and those close to them and I want to ensure we support anyone in our industry who may face these challenges themselves and make sure they always have somewhere to turn to.

Meanwhile, two new co-chairs have been appointed to the committee of Stranger than Summer, NABS’ flagship fundraising gala.

Gill Huber, managing partner, Future Factory and Kelly Parker, CEO, Wavemaker, take over from the last two years’ chairs, Liz Jones, founder, Conker, and Ed Couchman, head of sales, Spotify. This year’s Stranger than Summer, held on 6 June, raised a total of £150,000.
