RadioCentre’s Director of Strategy Lisa Kerr is leaving to set up her own Media and Communications Consultancy Business.
The Radio Academy Trustee and SoundWomen board member first joined RadioCentre predecessor the CRCA in 2001.
Announcing her departure, Andrew Harrison, CEO of RadioCentre said “After a decade leading commercial radio’s external affairs teams Lisa is leaving us on a high: with record audience reach, growth in advertising market share and a framework for future success around the Digital Economy Act, which she helped champion last year. I am delighted we will retain her talent in the future as RadioCentre will be one of the founder clients of her new consultancy business.”
Lisa commented “I have had a terrific time at RadioCentre and have been privileged to work with some very talented and creative people. I am very proud of what we have achieved together on behalf of our industry. My new business is an exciting opportunity which will allow me to continue to work with RadioCentre and other media companies, and, building on my existing non-executive positions within education and the arts, to expand my professional portfolio into other sectors”.
Just last year Lisa was awarded the Arqiva Commercial Radio Chairman’s Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Long Term Development of Commercial Radio, and was recently made a Fellow of the Radio Academy. Prior to joining RadioCentre, she was a presenter and producer for Classic FM and Radio Forth, and was Group Managing Director of Radio Services Ltd, responsible for a portfolio of local radio stations across the UK.
