BPCA appoint new Marketing and Communications Manager

After a rigorous recruitment process, the British Pest Control Association has promoted Scott Johnstone to the position of Marketing and Communications Manager.

Scott is now responsible for developing and managing the marketing and communication activities for the Association.

Sccott Johnstone is the new BPCA Marketing and Communications Manager

He has been with the Association for 2.5 years, starting as the Content and Communications Officer back in 2016.

BPCA Chief Exec, Ian Andrew, said:

“We are delighted to be able to promote internally for this role.

“Scott has already proved he is a significant asset to BPCA and I am certain he will take our marketing and communications to exciting new places”.

In his old role, Scott was instrumental in redeveloping the new BPCA website, revamping the now award-winning PPC magazine, and helping to deliver campaigns such as “Be Protected. Professionally.”

Scott has a background in developing marketing and communication activities for commercial and not-for-profit organisations.

He holds a first-class degree from Aberystwyth University and is a certified digital copywriter.

On the appointment, Scott said:

“With PestEx, I’ve not had much time to process the new job yet, but I’m excited to get started. I genuinely think BPCA’s a great association, with a fantastic membership community.

“We’ve got plenty of work to do to deliver our strategy and make sure our members’ voices are heard far-and-wide, but first things first, I should probably do some recruitment for my old role!”
