Brand expert Rita Clifton awarded CBE

UK— Former Interbrand London chairman Rita Clifton has been awarded a CBE in the New Year’s Honours List.


Clifton, who now runs her own consultancy BrandCap, receives the honour for “services to the advertising industry”.

In addition to BrandCap, Clifton is also president of the Market Research Society and chairman of the research agency Populus.

She told her local paper, the Maidenhead Advertiser: “I am thrilled because obviously it is an honour both literally and emotionally. And also it is very good for the people who I work with and the organisations I work with as well, it is as much recognition for what they have achieved.”

  • Clifton ends her term as MRS president in April. Her (unofficial) exit interview appears in Issue 4 of Impact Magazine, out next week.
