We are pleased to announce that we have appointed Dianna Jones as a Non-Executive Director with effect from 6 April 2022. In addition, Jonathan Peachey, Next 15’s Chief Operating Officer, will also be joining the Board from the same date.

The new appointments to Next 15’s Board reflect the continued growth of the Group in recent years and add a greater breadth of experience, particularly in the U.S. market. Dianna has nearly twenty years of legal experience and is a Director in Legal Compliance at Uber, the global technology company. Her focus is providing senior counsel on Legal Compliance and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues, and she also serves as Global Co-Chair of Black at Uber Employee Resource Group. Previously, Dianna served as Regional Compliance Counsel – Western Hemisphere at John Wood Group plc.

Jonathan Peachey has served as Next 15’s Group Chief Operating Officer since June 2019. He has previously served in senior strategy and delivery roles at a range of businesses including the BBC, where he led the development of its customer data programme, and as Chief Operating Officer & Senior Partner of Engine Group. He joined Engine Group following its acquisition of his digital strategy consultancy. He will join the Board and remain in his current role.

On behalf of the Board, Penny Ladkin-Brand, Chair said: “Dianna and Jonathan are excellent additions to the Board and bring with them a wide range of experience from the technology, consultancy and transformation fields which will prove immensely valuable as Next 15 continues to utilise technology and data to drive growth. Dianna will add critical knowledge and understanding of the U.S., which continues to be a key market for us. I’m confident that these appointments will support management’s ambitious growth plans for Next 15”.
