Effective 20th July Ruth Hinton from Vue International will take up the role of Chair of AURA, the UK’s biggest network of clientside market researchers. Ruth takes over from Tim Steere, who successfully led the organisation for four years. As well as steering AURA through the pandemic, Tim oversaw a rebrand, a huge expansion of the AURA events programme and the development of the AURA Awards.
About her appointment Ruth said:
“I have been a member of AURA for many years myself, and this is a great team and a great community. Tim has done an amazing job as Chair and we’d like to thank him for his long and continuing service to AURA.
“Our vision as a team is to build on his great work and keep AURA doing what it does best: inspiring insight with high quality content and events, plus friendly networking and advice, exclusively for clientside insight and research teams - for another 20 years and beyond, including in additional new and interesting ways.
“I’d like to thank all our members and industry partners for their continued support of AURA and look forward to meeting more of you at our upcoming events.”
Tim Steere will be staying on as one of AURAs five volunteer Directors, to oversee finances on behalf of the Council.
