BDP has appointed Vanessa Brown as Head of Communications, from 12 March 2012. She succeeds Sheri Besford who pioneered the modern media team under the early guidance of Greville Griffiths and Richard Saxon creating one of the first dedicated communications departments in the industry in the UK.
Vanessa, who has been at BDP since 2008, is an expert in engineering marketing and brings complementary skills to the communications team where she will continue to develop and strengthen BDP’s communications strategy.
Vanessa said of her appointment: “In our increasingly international market and 24 hour media landscape, I am passionate about the importance of implementing strategic communications that will help to elevate the profile of BDP and our interdisciplinary approach. The opportunity to lead BDP’s talented communications team and build upon their strengths, as well as those of the company, is one that I will relish.”
Sheri said “I am proud of my achievements at BDP and feel it is now the right time to hand over to a worthy successor”.
