Thinkbox, the marketing body for commercial television in the UK, has made a number of executive changes.
Chief executive Tess Alps will step down to become executive chair from July 1. Meanwhile, Julia Jordan, executive director, business and operations at UKTV, will become chair of Thinkbox for 12 months.
Alps said: “I’m looking forward to spending more time with my TV. My planner is so full that going to three days a week is the only option. Once that’s cleared, I will have the opportunity to do a couple of other things. I shall never stop championing TV advertising’s effectiveness and pressing for it to get the recognition and investment it deserves, or being fascinated by its expansion through new technologies.”
