Nabs appoints Poynton, Rudd and Dalglish as trustees for centenary year
Nabs, the industry charity, is gearing up for its centenary year with the appointment of Malcolm Poynton, Charlie Rudd and Simon Dalglish to its board of trustees.
Poynton, Sapient Nitro's chief creative officer, Rudd, BBH's managing director and Daglish, ITV group commercial director, will work alongside Ian Pearman, Nabs' chairman and chief executive at Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO.
Thinkbox's Tess Alps and Channel 5's Nick Bampton have stepped down as trustees having served for three years. The trustees, who have a hands-on role in the direction of Nabs, will be supported in an advisory capacity by new patron appointments, including GroupM chief executive Nick Theakstone and Adam & Eve DDB’s chairman Stephen Woodford.
Miroma non-executive chairman Graham Duff, previously a trustee, has also become a patron.
The new appointments were announced this morning by Nabs president Phil Georgiadis at the Nabs President’s Breakfast held at the IPA.
Nabs is planning a number of initiatives for its centenary next year and will enlist the help of the new trustees to ensure their success.
Georgiadis said: "The future success of Nabs depends on a clear strategy and the support and engagement of brilliant people from all parts of our dynamic industry."
Upcoming centenary projects include "100 club outstanding achievement roll call", a scheme that asks managers to nominate their best employees, with the winners receiving a Gold Partner Card.
The Nabs Partner Card Scheme launched in July and has been distributed to 5,000 people in the industry. It gives benefits including free monthly Tuesday Club Talks, which will host Lord Sugar at the next event.
At today’s President’s Breakfast the industry body awarded Bampton, commercial sales director at Channel 5, the Ron Miller award for outstanding services to charity.
Meanwhile, Simon Horton of JWT won the David Pilton award for his winning fundraising idea of a Nabs lottery, which will be introduced in the New Year.Follow @mattchapmanuk
