Press Release: Andy Barnes joins Concise Media Consulting Limited as Director


Concise Media is delighted to announce that Andy Barnes is joining the business in his first major move since leaving Channel 4 in 2011. Andy brings a fantastic pedigree of experience to Concise. He will provide strategic input and consultancy, giving informed perspectives and commentary to clients and focusing on commerciality across the business.

Kevin Waller, Founder of Concise comments:  “We are absolutely thrilled that Andy has decided to work with us. He left Channel 4 at the top of his game and is extremely well respected in the industry. Andy is a straight talker and always delivers on his promises. He knows the market better than anyone and having him on board is going to be of huge benefit to our clients and our business.”

Andy Barnes comments: “I have felt for some time that I would like to do something else in the business but only if I could make a worthwhile contribution and work with people that I respected. I worked with Kevin at Channel 4 and have a very good relationship with him. Between us there is a mutual understanding about the goals we wish to achieve and what we can realistically do. His philosophy is one of common sense, is simple and easy to understand and mirrors my own. Clearly audit will remain the mainstay of the business but together I believe we can find many different and innovative ways to help both sides of the equation to deliver bespoke solutions. As such I am sure I can make a positive contribution and help Concise deliver the best possible service.”

Since launching as a new business in 2013, Concise has won contracts for Bauer Magazines, IPC Media, News UK and UKTV.
