Marketing Derby Launches London Club

Marketing Derby has officially launched the London chapter of the Derby Ambassadors Club.

The club aims to bring together Derbeians who are based in the capital to act as ambassadors for Derby, endorsing the city’s investment offer.

This innovative approach recognises that Derby’s talent has a wide reach and the club will serve social and investment purposes.

David Boutcher, Partner at global law firm Reed Smith, has been named by Marketing Derby as the Chair of the club. 

David Boutcher said: “I am thrilled to be Chair of the new London chapter of the Derby Ambassadors Club for Marketing Derby, and very much look forward to connecting with fellow Londoners from Derby who share the passion for our great city, and want to spread the word about its fantastic and innovative development.”

John Forkin, Managing Director of Marketing Derby, added: “The London chapter of the Derby Ambassadors Club represents the next stage of Marketing Derby’s evolution. 

“As a company Marketing Derby has always been pro-active in its approach to investment. This new chapter not only allows Marketing Derby to go directly to where much of the investment is, but provides us with a whole host of Ambassadors to help spread the word about Derby.”
