BISA appoints new Communications Manager

We’re delighted to announce that BISA has recently appointed a new full-time Communications Manager, Chrissie Elliot-Duxson.
Chrissie has replaced Maximilian Lempriere who has done a fantastic job of looking after BISA’s communications on a part-time basis over the past few years.
Chrissie has worked in marketing/communications for around 10 years across a range of different sectors including several positions in Higher Education at the University of Warwick. She graduated in 2008 with a first-class degree in Law from the University of the West of England and has professional qualifications in marketing and accountancy. Chrissie is also a former Chair of her local branch of the Federation of Small Businesses and Coventry and Warwickshire First Young Professionals. In her spare time Chrissie enjoys travelling, reviewing gigs for Birmingham Live and is a singer/songwriter.
BISA Chair, Mark Webber, said “Following the success that BISA has enjoyed over the past few years, we are now in a position where we need a full-time member of staff to look after our communications. We want to make significant changes to our website and member communications, as well as increasing our offer to new audiences such as schools, and this just couldn’t be achieved on a part-time basis. I’ve really enjoyed working with Max and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
Over the next six months Chrissie will be working on developing a new BISA website and refreshing the BISA brand, as well as continuing the great work done by Max. She is looking forward to getting to know as many BISA members and Working Group convenors as possible. Should you have any member or working group-related news/events please get in touch with Chrissie and she will be happy to help you disseminate these via our communications channels. Her email address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
We’ve taken on the web development and rebrand work following analysis of the results from the member survey we conducted in the Spring, and we hope the results will address some the things you asked for. We’ll be bringing you more information on this over the course of the next few months.
Welcome Chrissie and good luck for the future Max.
