Dominic Carter, group chief commercial officer, News UK, has been appointed to the Trustee Board at NABS, the support organisation for the advertising and media industry.
Dominic is a long-term supporter of NABS and also a member of the NABS 100 Club – the organisation’s group of influential senior leaders who mentor people across the industry.
With a CV that includes roles across News International and Mirror Group, Dominic has one of the industry’s strongest track records in commercial operations.
Dominic’s appointment comes at a critical time for NABS as it faces one of its toughest years yet.
The charity has expanded its services to response to the Covid crisis, and continues to meet rising demand due to the effects of the pandemic. Yet it faces a 40% drop in income, largely due to the loss of funds usually generated by its live events programme.
The NABS Board’s diversity and representation across the range of the advertising industry is also strengthened by Dominic’s presence, both in terms of his personal background and also his role at a media owner. This will help NABS to drive forward its commitment to inclusion and representation, both internally and in its work with the wider industry.
Simon Daglish, chairman, NABS, said: “Dominic is one of our industry’s most influential voices and has been a loyal supporter of NABS for a long time. He will be a vital commercial and diverse voice on our Board, helping NABS to evolve its services and outlook into the future.”
Dominic Carter said: “As a business, we have supported NABS for a very long time now. Becoming a member of the Board will allow me to take a more active role in the charity’s direction to ensure the vital role NABS plays continues to be available to others for decades to come – something I’m proud to do and very excited about. These are crucial times for NABS. Together with my Board colleagues, I hope to support the organisation as it grows its services and finds new ways to bring in much-needed funds that allow it to continue supporting colleagues in this great industry.”
