Clare Hill, managing director of the Content Marketing Association, said: "Over the past three years, the CMA has been through a huge transformation, with Andrew as a driving force in helping us deliver a new value proposition and positioning it as the centre of excellence for all things content marketing.

"I would personally like to thank him for his invaluable support, whilst welcoming Matt to the role.

"He has been a big supporter of the CMA and content marketing in recent years and it’s wonderful that he has taken on the Chairperson role."
