B&T’s Emerging Agency Of The Year, Nightjar, has recently appointed an advisory board to help drive their growth domestically and scale up internationally.

The board brings a new level of strategic thinking to the team and ensures the world class standard of Nightjar’s work continues. The impressive pedigree of both board members means that Nightjar is well positioned to realise their ambitions of becoming a multinational, multidisciplinary brand.

Mark Veryet has been named chairman and Margaret Manning as a board member.

Veryet was appointed in December 2020 as the chair of Nightjar’s newly established advisory board, designed to advise the founders on an accelerated growth path for the business. Veryet is a global leader in scaling up businesses, their brands, the owners and their leadership teams. His market focus is on advising smart services businesses, emerging tech players and high growth knowledge based businesses.

He has chaired and worked on a number of Governance and Advisory Boards across several service industries. He is a Certified Chair of the Advisory Board Centre and serves as the Co-Chair of the NSW Community of the Centre.

Veryet has held leadership roles at the Australian, Asia-Pacific and global level including as the Global BD Leader for Entrepreneurial and Private Businesses at PwC, National Marketing & Sales Leader at EY, CMO for Westpac’s corporate, institutional and international operations and has held COO and CMO leadership roles in a number of different service industries.

He is a Fellow of the Australian Marketing Institute, a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Australia and New Zealand and a Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

Manning has been involved with technical innovation and creativity since 1996, when she founded Reading Room which become one of the UK’s largest digital agencies with offices across the UK, ASEAN and Australia. After the sale of the UK business in October 2015, she led a management buy-in for the Asia-Pacific business, rebranded as Adelphi Digital and sold to EY in 2018.

Her lifelong pursuit of online gaming, her degree in psychology (specialising in artificial intelligence) and her management consultancy background contributed to her interest in online communications. She continues to explore how the Internet is fundamentally changing the way that businesses work. Most recently she has become a proponent of agile business principles as the required starting point for successful digital transformation.

Manning was awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to exports to the Asia-Pacific region. She remains committed to helping SMEs scale.

She has served as the Chair of the UK-ASEAN Business Council (UKABC.org.uk) She has won numerous accolades for entrepreneurship, female leadership in technology and for innovation. Throughout her career she has been an advocate for equality in the workplace regardless of gender, race or orientation. She remains firmly committed to these principles.
