Director of Regulatory Affairs

Nick joined the IAB – the UK industry body for digital advertising - as its first head of regulatory affairs in April 2008.  He leads the sector, both in the UK and at EU level, in working for the optimal policy environment for digital advertising, in particular on privacy issues, and helping to boost the understanding of advertising and its benefits within regulatory and political circles. Nick’s work at the IAB UK also covers minimizing the risk of advertising misplacement and injecting greater transparency into the trading of ads.

Nick led the work to publish the IAB’s UK Good Practice Principles for behavioural advertising in March 2009, providing new rules based around notice, choice and education to help guide the industry and enhance consumer trust.  He is also vice-chair of IAB Europe’s Policy Committee, spearheading self-regulatory initiatives at EU level, including the recently launched pan-EU Framework for behavioural advertising. Nick was elected chair of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA) – the body administering the EU self-regulatory initiative - in June 2013. He also vice chair of the cross industry EU steering group on behavioural advertising.

Prior to the IAB, Nick worked at Orange, leading public policy issues across both mobile and broadband sectors.
