Redican is currently Managing Director of the Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB), where he has spent the last seven years of his career. Prior to that, he worked at Times Media as Director of Solutions, Classic FM, and a number of media agencies including Starcom Mediavest and Carat.

“Mike will be a very hard act to follow and has given the NRS five fantastic years of energy and commitment, for which we are all extremely grateful,” said Simon Marquis, Chairman, NRS.  “I am very pleased that the board saw a host of exceptionally good candidates as a potential successor, of which Simon stood out.

“His broad media experience, many contacts in the business, his fantastic track record at RAB, and most of all his enthusiasm to take on the NRS role, make us both excited and relieved that we have found someone with exactly the right capabilities to take NRS forward. It is a truism to say these are challenging times, but they are, and NRS needs to respond ever more intelligently to the changing needs of its stakeholders,” added Marquis.
