DBA picks new regional managers

The Design Business Association has appointed four new regional heads of development, who will act as the face of the DBA in the regions.

Ann Rimmer, of Clock Creative, takes over in the North West of England from former Love managing director Alistair Sim, and Simon Farrell of Tayburn has been appointed in Scotland, succeeding Keith Forbes, who moves to the DBA’s board of directors.

The North East of England region, which was formerly represented by DBA president Nick Ramshaw, has been split into two, with Ian Thompson of Thompson Brand Partners taking over in Yorkshire & Humberside, and Colin Robertson of Blumilk in the North East.

The role of regional head of development was created in 2005.
