AMDEA has announced changes to its team.
In December last year, the organisation bid farewell to Sian Lewis, external communications and affairs manager, as well as Lilian Hunter, who was membership secretary. AMDEA is currently in the process of recruiting new team members.
In the interim, the trade association has engaged the support of two experienced industry experts. Sean Hannam, previously editor of the trade publication ERT, is supporting AMDEA’s communications, and Robert Gosling, previously of Dyson, will be supporting its standards/ regulatory and commercial activities.
Commenting on the changes, AMDEA CEO, Paul Hide (pictured), said: “Sian and Lilian both gave many years of loyal and supportive service to AMDEA, its membership and our partners and stakeholders. We wish them well in their new endeavours.”
Regarding AMDEA’s digital communications going forward, he said: “We launched our new website last year and have been encouraged by the many positive comments received from members on the improvements made. We are currently finalising the new member and stakeholder portal, which will give members password-protected access to all the documents that we share and publish. We expect this to go live very soon.”
Mr Hide added: “Our newsletters are also being refreshed. Our new Weekly Bulletin replaces the old Tech Alert and will cover news and information on both technical and non-technical matters. Our refreshed Monthly Newsletter will combine the two newsletters we previously distributed, clearly sectioned by content type. Hopefully this new approach will help condense the large amount of information that AMDEA sends out each week, enabling clearer and more concise communications.”
