The IAB’s Editorial Manager and Chair of the Council, Stuart Aitken, commented: “At the IAB we’re always interested in working closely with key players of all sizes within different sectors and we are looking forward to working with all Audio Council members throughout the coming year to ensure our objectives and plans come together.”
