News People Telecoms UK

UK – Commercial radio trade body Radiocentre’s chief executive, Siobhan Kenny, will step down from her role in the summer.


Kenny (pictured), who has led Radiocentre since 2014, is not leaving for another role, and will take time out to explore her next career steps. Radiocentre has started searching for a replacement.

During her time at Radiocentre, Kenny oversaw the integration of the Radio Advertising Bureau, which looked after commercial radio trade marketing, and Radio Advertising Clearance Centre Radio, which cleared scripts under the UK code of broadcast advertising, into the Radiocentre brand.

Howell James, chair of Radiocentre, said: “Siobhan has done a great job amplifying the contribution of a dynamic sector.

“The Radiocentre team and I have much valued her wisdom and experience and, most of all, have enjoyed working with her. She will be a hard act to follow but we will be starting our search straight away.”

Kenny said: “I have had the best time leading a fantastic organisation through a period of change and growth, culminating in the industry’s response to coronavirus.

“It has been a privilege to work in such a creative and dynamic environment which will only grow at the heart of the audio revolution. At Radiocentre, this amazing team, under new leadership, will ensure the industry is in great hands.”
