The Insights People are delighted to announce the appointment of Deborah Maclaren to their Advisory Board. Deborah joins several other industry professionals including, Nikki Samuels, CEO at FACTORY, Ken Faier, CEO of Epic Story Media and Andrew Baker, former ITV executive as members of The Insights People Advisory Board. Not to mention the recent appointment of Stefan Lampinen as chairman of the company, Deborah joins now at a time of excelling growth both internally and externally.
Deborah is no stranger to the company, having held the position of Commercial Director at The Insights People from September 2017 to March 2020. This has meant that she has seen firsthand the substantial growth which the company has achieved since its founding in 2017 and how the company has grown internally as well as entering new markets over the years.
In March 2020, Deborah left her position as Commercial Director at The Insights People to focus on her role as Managing Director of the UK’s leading book recommendation websites, LoveReading, LoveReading4Kids and LoveReading4Schools. These three websites provide a platform to recommend books and encourage a love of reading for pleasure in everyone particularly in children and they are surely very lucky to have Deborah on their respective teams.
Nick Richardson, CEO of The Insights People commented on the addition of Deborah Maclaren to the Advisory Board,
“It is wonderful to be continuing to work with Debs who has been such an important part of our team. It has been great to see how she has taken LoveReading forward since she got involved, bringing it back from the brink, in liquidation to the success story it has become today.”
Deborah has an impeccable resumé with over 25 years’ experience in the media and publishing industries, providing regular insights and advice to companies in the sectors. Deborah now brings a new and unique perspective to the Advisory Board and in this new role she will be able to use her extensive experiences to contribute to the decision-making process for The Insights People.
Deborah Maclaren commented
“I am delighted to continue my involvement with The Insights People. I have been there since the early days, it has been a privilege to be involved in that journey and it has been a joy to see it grow into the powerhouse it is today – the global leader in kids, parents and family market intelligence. I look forward to my role on the Advisory Board and to continuing to work with Nick and his talented team of people.”
