Earlier last month, we had to say goodbye to Richard Wade, former Director General of the Advertising Association, and a great advocate for Self-Regulation in the advertising industry. Among the founders of the European Advertising Standards Alliance in 1992, Richard has always been an active supporter of cross-industry initiatives fostering responsible and trusted advertising. His forward-looking vision of the heightened role of self-regulation in the new world of digital advertising was essential in bringing together the self-regulatory community and digital players to support building the self-regulatory programme on data-driven advertising administered by the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance.
We are saddened about Richard’s passing away and we express our condolences to Richard’s loved ones.
