We are pleased to welcome Jody Bratley to the team as General Manager of the IPM.
Bratley joins the IPM from The Drum where he was responsible for their membership success. Having spent many successful years at the IPM when he ran the IPM’s Bitesize and the original print version of the website, he may be a familiar face to many established IPM members. Jody brings with him a tremendous understanding of the industry, exceptional experience and a focus on driving the power and value of the membership to those inside and outside the organisation.
Bratley explains, ‘It is such a pleasure to be returning to the IPM after a few years. I am particularly excited to pick up the tremendous work that has been achieved with the Communities and progressing these with the respective teams. The roadmap we now have in front of us for a return to events is hugely exciting and we are looking forward to reflecting this in our upcoming activities.’
Together with the existing Community Chairs and the Board, the IPM is strengthening the power of its base to give members more support and access to the array of services that are available to them.
After a year with the IPM Andrew Rae has completed his tenure as Managing Director and will be stepping down to concentrate on establishing his own agency. The IPM would like to thank Andrew for his support over what has been a very unpredictable year. He will be remaining as a member of the Board and will continue his work with the Promotional Marketing Services Community.
