AMEC Chief Executive awarded Honorary Fellowship
Barry Leggetter, Chief Executive of the International Association for the Measurement and Evaluation of Communication (AMEC), has been awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the CIPR, in recognition of his achievements in driving change in public relations practice.
As Chief Executive, he has been responsible for turning AMEC into an international body and tackling the use of Advertising Value Equivalent (AVE) metrics. AMEC’s Global Summit starts today in Barcelona, at which the CIPR will be represented by Board member Stuart Bruce.
Honorary Fellowship, conferring membership for life, is the highest grade of CIPR membership and is granted by the Board of Directors.
Barry has shown a deep commitment to promoting best practice in the measurement and evaluation of public relations activity, by bringing people together around the world and enabling discussion and education on one of the industry’s most technical problems. He is a thoroughly deserving recipient of this recognition.
Barry, winner of the Don Bartholomew Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Industry, is to stand down as Chief Executive of the International Association for the Measurement and Evaluation of Communication in 2018, a post he has held since 2007.
