Tim Brooks, former MD of Guardian News & Media joins us as chairman

As the world’s leading provider of digital training and knowledge, we're excited to announce the appointment of Tim Brooks, the former managing director of Guardian News & Media, as our chairman.

Brooks joins at an exciting time. After successfully launching in the USA in 2010, new UTalkMarketing offices have opened in the Asia-Pacific and Latin America regions this year.

The appointment of a senior media figure to lead the board indicates the strength of our future global growth prospects.

Niall Mckinney, our founder and CEO said: “It’s not often you get to choose your own boss. Once Tim’s vast experience and knowledge became available, we lost no time in securing his services. I have benefitted from Tim’s wisdom for many years, and look forward to building UTalkMarketing even faster with his support.

"Every forward thinking company is going through digital transformation, and the UTalkMarketing experience is an integral part of that process,” he adds.

Brooks comments: “I’ve been following UTalkMarketing since its launch in 2007, and I am extremely pleased to join the team at a time when it is moving into an exciting next phase of growth, both domestically and globally.

"Those who know me know I have a life-long commitment to learning and development within business, and the excellent client list that UTalkMarketing has already built is testimony to how well it delivers to those companies’ changing needs.”

We're also delighted to also announce the appointment of Faith Hill as publishing director of online products. Faith joins from IPC Media where she ran publishing and marketing for flagship brands including NME, Look and Marie Claire.

These two additions are testament to our rapid expansion in helping global brands and marketing agencies, such as WPP, Warner Bros and Omnicom, build and enhance their digital capability. 

In the last 12 months we're proud to have trained over 15,000 people in classroom training in 30 countries, and many more online.
