… to the Institute of Promotional Marketing (IPM).
The trade body that represents the promotional marketing industry in the UK has announced that it is to welcome our very own Andrew Rae, Head of Promotions, to join their Board of Directors. This recent appointment caps off a tremendous couple of years for the Promotions department in which they have won the ‘double triple’ at the COGS Awards with Gold, Silver and Bronze awarded in the same category for two years running. Not ones to rest on their laurels, they followed their awards success by adding two members of the department, Luisa Oliveira and Chelsea Gurr, to the ‘30 Under 30’ scheme, following in the shoes of Harriet Kendall who joined the scheme in 2016.
Representation on the board, the ’30 Under 30′ scheme and the unprecedented haul at the industry awards cements the team as leaders in their field.
“It’s a real opportunity for me to make sure that the boundary-pushing creative work that happens every day in our agencies and that underpins the promotional industry will continue to be recognised and given the credit it is due. I am also hugely keen to make sure that the IPM continues to be relevant, useful and educational when it comes to welcoming in a fresh crop of talent. The people passing through the IPM’s educational schemes and networking events will be the Directors of the future and will, in turn, be safeguarding the special place that promotional marketing holds in the marketing mix.” explained Andrew.
