NABS Scotland Appoints Four New Committee Members


The hires come as demand for its services is set to rise during coronavirus outbreak 

NABS Scotland Appoints Four New Committee Members

Four senior members of Scotland’s ad industry have been appointed to NABS’ Scotland committee.  

Andrew Dobbie, founder/CEO of MadeBrave; Shona Watson, director SW&CO brand and design agency; Anna Kormos, freelance marketing manager; and Saoirse McKenna, copywriter at Union Direct now join a strong committee of fellow changemakers at NABS, the support organisation for people working in advertising and the media.  

The four join existing committee members Mark Gorman, head of thinking, Think Hard; Sara Robertson, head of membership, IPA; David Roberts, head of business, Multiply; and Jackie Anderson, head of agency and associate director, Denholm Associates.  

NABS in Scotland is dedicated to helping local advertising and media professionals. Its network is growing; having established itself in Edinburgh, NABS is now looking to extend support, learning and networking opportunities to those working in Glasgow. 

The timing of the appointments is particularly relevant as NABS expects demand for its services to rise during the coronavirus pandemic.  

Advertising represents 5.6% of the Scottish economy and supports at least 42,000 jobs in Scotland. 

Andrew, Shona, Anna and Saoirse join an experienced team who will help to guide NABS through the next few months and beyond, ensuring that Scottish advertising and media professionals are supported through the challenges brought about by coronavirus. 

Kate Harris, regional director, NABS, says: “There’s a real appetite for our work around wellbeing in Scotland, and NABS is here to meet it, especially as we expect coronavirus to have serious implications for the welfare of people working in our industry.  

“Andrew, Shona, Anna and Saoirse are passionate about supporting emotional health and they’ve all been active in promoting wellbeing in their workplaces. They join a strong and growing committee who are helping to shape an exciting, relevant and useful programme for their Scottish colleagues.” 

Future plans for NABS Scotland include Glasgow’s first Masterclass (group coaching session) later in the year and an art auction taking place in Edinburgh.
