One of the best known and respected creative writers in the business, Mike Bersin, is to join UKRD Group, taking up the post of Advertising Creative Director.

The new role, created for Mike, will start in February and is the first step in a major new investment by UKRD in creative support for the groups local sales force.

“This appointment signals yet further commitment to our local operations and will result in a level of support being provided to our station sales operations which we believe will be unrivalled at our level within the radio sector,” said William Rogers, the group’s Chief Executive Officer.

“Mike brings with him over 30 years of experience and an outstanding creative talent and the team he will help us to build right across our portfolio will enhance the service we can deliver to local businesses, which increasingly represent the key growth area for us,” said Rogers.

Mike Bersin confirmed his appointment and said that he was looking forward to working with the team at UKRD enormously.

“Serving local communities with truly effective local advertising, 100% of the time, is an inspirational challenge and I can’t wait. I have enjoyed working with many operators in the industry and I’ve been self employed for a good many years. UKRD is a company that has really attracted me and its focus on its people and the values it operates with are immensely attractive. I can’t wait to start,” he said.

Bersin starts with UKRD in February.
