The British Arrows Unveils New Board Members

The British Arrows is today announcing eight new members to its board; Chris Bovill & John Allison, Executive Creative Heads of 4Creative who will share the position, Chris O'Reilly Co-Founder and ECD of Nexus, Clare Donald, Chief Production Officer from Ogilvy & Mather, Davud Karbassioun, Chief Production Officer and Managing Partner at BBH, Jane Bolton, MD / Executive Producer at Jamie Oliver’s Fat Lemon, Lee Pavey, Producer / Partner at Electric Theatre Collective, Orlando Wood, Executive Producer at Biscuit Filmworks UK and Sally Campbell, Founding Partner of Somesuch. 

This impressive 20-strong board is chaired by Rogue’s Charlie Crompton, who is spearheading the new direction for The British Arrows, namely to support, seek out, and spotlight the best in British advertising talent, celebrate the best of British storytelling in the industry, champion craft and inspire and bring in new and diverse talent.

Charlie Crompton, Chairman, Rogue, commented: "The British Arrows are the gold standard – they’re hard to win – and they’ll remain so but we’re going to make them more inclusive… Inspirational rather than self-congratulatory. In welcoming such great minds to join the board, we’re ensuring that the Arrows not only remains the most prestigious awards in the UK –– but also that in this rapidly changing business, that the British Arrows speaks to a whole new generation of scarily talented creative people who are re-defining what advertising means – and about time too.  It’s a very exciting time for us all and the Arrows are here to celebrate that. "

The British Arrows have been running for over 40 years. They launched as the London Television Advertising Awards in 1976, and today, as well as TV and cinema, the British Arrows embrace all forms of technology from online and interactive film campaigns - to now being the first British advertising awards to open categories for 360 / VR and AR film-based advertising.
