On the 14th July 2015 Roy Stannard joined the rapidly growing Preview Visual Communications Group based in Victoria Way, Burgess Hill in a new role for the Group as Sales & Marketing Manager. Roy has performed at a senior level in all aspects of marketing management, branding, media, creative thinking and performance related marketing for more than 25 years. He was a founder director and MD of Splash FM in 2001 and took it to air in 2003. In its first two years on air the Station was accepted as the voice of Worthing and regarded as an exemplar of independent local radio by Ofcom. He left to set up his own ad agency in Worthing in 2006.
He has arrived at The Preview Group at an exciting time in the company’s evolution as it prepares to open key overseas export markets in Europe and the Middle East. PVL UK is the largest supplier of high-visibility graphics to the UK emergency services and also provides corporate branding for large fleets. As a contributor to key UK industry consultative committees on safety in this area its expertise is now increasingly in demand overseas.
Art D’Signs has been servicing the local market in signage and graphics for shops and vehicles for over 35 years and Preview has over 20 years history in design, web development and online marketing. Effectively, the Group can brand on the move, any surface and online. Roy continues to host a programme for East Sussex radio station Seahaven 96.3 FM every Thursday evening.
Preview and PVL founder, Nick Broom is delighted that Roy Stannard, who has a background as an MD and Creative Director, has arrived at this time, “Roy brings extensive experience in agency management in the Sussex area and has forged relationships with hundreds of companies across the South over the last 25 years. He brings important management, new business and creative skills to the group at a time when we are looking to move to the next level of growth.”
Roy is a regular contributor to local media on the business scene and uses radio, social media and blogs as part of his mission to make the commercial world more accessible to the layperson. Roy’s strength lies in creating and directing corporate advertising campaigns utilising over 25 years of experience of working with local, regional and national media.
