The IPM is delighted to welcome the new head of its in-house Legal Advisory Service: James Wilkinson-Green. He replaces Helen Hart, who leaves with immediate effect to pursue new opportunities.
James joins the IPM with an impeccable professional marketing compliance pedigree, following three years at CBS Outdoor, four and half years at the ASA and, most recently, two years as Senior Compliance Manager at Virgin Media.
Three other things you need to know about James…
- He spent the majority of 2018 travelling around South America and South-East Asia with his partner, as well as sailing solo up the east coast of the UK from Essex to Orkney.
- He makes a great salsa verde.
- He loves freediving.
James said: “I’m delighted to be joining the IPM in this exciting role at such an interesting time for the industry. I’m really looking forward to delivering far-reaching compliance advice to the IPM membership and beyond, as well as sharing industry updates and my opinions on a wide range of topics, and working closely with my old colleagues at CAP and the ASA.”
Paul Cope, Managing Director of the IPM, added: “We’re thrilled to have James on board. He’s someone with a proven track-record for running marketing compliance functions, as well as building great relationships with key regulators and other important stakeholders. Welcome James!
I’d also like to express my thanks to Helen Hart, whose knowledge and enthusiasm will be missed. We wish her well in all her future endeavours”.
Following a full handover with Helen, James settled into his new role on Monday 21st January.
