Richard Bagnall, Chairman of AMEC and Global Strategy Consultant for PRIME Research, said AMEC was at an important stage in its history, with the organisation showing strong growth, while adapting to the huge changes in the public relations, communications, media and media intelligence sectors.

He said: “The pace of disruption to PR, Comms and media has also had a huge impact on the media intelligence sector. AMEC’s impressive growth continues, both internationally and through partnerships and education initiatives and events. AMEC is the defacto leader that the market turns to for advice on best practice regarding today’s communications measurement and evaluation challenges.

“Our international board is at the heart of this important work. I am looking for a motivated team of members to join our board who will have the time, energy and can offer the resources required to help propel our important work.”
