HRF team expands

2018 is bringing new people to our board. We are very happy to have their support.

After the incorporation of Baroness Hollins, we have a new patron Mohamed Gamal Abdelmonem, who has been collaborating with us for a number of years and is currently editor of our forthcoming book.

Welcome, Prof. Abdelmonem to our team! Your input from the field of Architecture will give us a new dimension to the home. “HRF has rightly managed to place the role of the home at the forefront of intellectual debates and social dialogue. That’s why the Foundation’s work is critical to our sustainable future,” explains Prof. Abdelmonem on joining HRF.

The second newcomer comes from Spain. Monica Herrero has decided to become a director, having been the Dean of the School of Communication at the University of Navarra from 2008- 2017.

Her research focuses on television economics, audience engagement and business models in the media industry. We hope to advance our communication strategy to further the work and achievements of HRF.

She explains why she accepted being part of HRF:

“I am honoured to join the Board of Directors at HRF especially at a time when digital technology is playing such a crucial role in all areas of our lives. As a media scholar, I’m aware of the profound impact the changes in the entertainment and communications industry have on people’s behaviour.” Find out more about her here.
