Lighthouse is thrilled to announce the appointment of digital strategist Antony Mayfield as the new Chair of its Board of Trustees.


Antony Mayfield is CEO and founding partner of Brilliant Noise, a digital strategy and innovation agency. A frequent speaker at conferences on digital strategy, marketing and business, he lectures at top UK and US business schools, and is author of a best-selling book on how to manage personal reputation online, Me and My Web Shadow, published by Bloomsbury. Previously he founded the content and social media teams at Spannerworks/iCrossing, which became the largest independent digital marketing firm in the world.


The outgoing Chair, Anthony Lilley OBE, who will step aside after five exceptional years, said: “Over the last five years, the work of the committed and highly talented team has made it possible for Lighthouse to first re-establish and more recently build strongly on its position as an innovative and trustworthy guide to digital culture. It’s been a great joy to work with such passionate, thoughtful people and to help set them up for the many great things which I’m sure are still to come.”


Co-Directors of Lighthouse, Miriam Randall and Juha van ‘t Zelfde commented: “We’re shaping an exciting new phase at Lighthouse and really looking forward to working with Antony. We know he understands and supports our vision, and that he’s as excited as we are about building a future proof organisation to champion the best in contemporary culture.”


Antony Mayfield says: “Joining Lighthouse is intensely exciting as its work has been an inspiration to me for years. This is an ambitious organisation with momentum and a growing reputation around the world. I aim to help the Lighthouse team keep its focus and strategic direction as it evolves.”


Antony will formally take up the role in March.
