Bauer Radio Development Director Iain Clasper has left the radio industry after nearly 30 years to become MD of a flag and marketing materials firm.
He’s previously worked for stations including Juice, Red Dragon, Hallam and Viking.
Iain has spent the last seven years with Bauer, most recently as Development Director, and held a number of senior roles in Bauer and predecessor Emap – as well as previously being National Sales Director for the former Metro Radio Group. His radio career started while he was still at school when he presented the rock show on Moray Firth Radio.
He’s taking up the role of Managing Director of Northern Flags, based in Leeds. Iain said: “Leaving Radio has been a wrench as it has been such a part of my life from adolescent spots to the first signs of grey hair. I have loved it, particularly recent digital launches and winning so many awards at Hallam FM and Station of the Year while at Juice FM. Northern Flags has however given me the opportunity of leading a significant growth plan over the next few years along with the opportunity of becoming a shareholder. I expect to be working with many Radio Stations on their external marketing as Northern Flags are one of the leaders in the production of custom printed event and display solutions.”
