Research group YouGov has appointed Ashley Martin as a non-executive director, chairing its audit & risk committee and taking over from Nick Jones.
Martin has recent experience in the tech/media sectors, including a board role at Zegona Communications. He also spent several years as a non-executive at Rightmove. He held a number of senior finance roles, including terms at Tempus, Rok, and The Engine Group as finance chief.
Chair Roger Parry said his TMT (technology, media and telecommunications) experience would prove “very valuable” in achieving its “ambitious goals over the next few years”.
