ilk expands board as long serving management team take a stake
ilk has added three members of its management team to the company’s board.
Joining MD Nev Ridley on the board are Lauren Saville as Client Services Director, Stewart Williams as Design Director and Richard Hanney as Strategy Director. They bring nearly 30 years of combined ‘ilk’ experience, and have each played key roles in shaping the development and direction of the company over the last decade.
Nev Ridley, Managing Director at ilk Agency, commented: “This move represents the next stage in the development of ilk, as well as recognition of the incredible part Lauren, Stewart and Richard have played in the growth and success of this agency.
“All good agencies need to plan for the future and with the expansion of the board we have a young, dynamic and talented team that will really help drive us forward – building on the success we have had over the last 21 years.”
Despite the challenges posed by the Covid pandemic, ilk has continued to thrive over the last 12 months and will see significant year-end growth in June 2021.
Lauren Saville, Client Services Director explained: “Like every agency, we have seen some clients suffer as a result of the pandemic, and we’ve done everything we can to support them, and repay the loyalty they’ve shown us over the years.
“However, we have also seen other clients grow considerably during this period, as well as adding a number of major clients to the roster, including Aardman Animation, Hi-Veg and Visit Leeds.
“This period has demonstrated to me and the rest of the board what an incredibly robust agency we have in ilk, and we couldn’t be more excited to be even more closely involved in steering the future of the agency.”
