ISA-UK Member Astra Group Bolsters Senior Team with the Promotion of Anthony Bright to Design and Delivery Director

Leading full-service provider of traditional and digital signage solutions, Astra Group, has welcomed Anthony Bright to the Board of Directors in the position of Design and Delivery Director.

The promotion of the former Design Manager further strengthens Astra Group’s senior leadership team as the fully fledged end-to-end signage business looks to continued expansion in the UK and internationally.

In the newly created role Bright will be responsible for Astra Group’s 15-strong design and delivery department, including product design, manufacturing design, project planning, project management, and project delivery, ensuring that all products are delivered on time, on budget and to the highest standards of quality, for which Astra Group is widely recognised.

Speaking on the promotion, Bright, a long-serving member of the Astra team with over 22 years’ experience, said: “Astra Group has grown exponentially over recent years.  The level of combined digital and traditional signage expertise we are proud to offer clients, along with our unrivalled technological and design capability and national and international reach, positions Astra Group at the forefront of the market. As the business looks to continued growth in the UK and overseas, I’m delighted to join the Board and to continue to play a role in the business’s future growth, delivering excellence as standard.”

Astra Group CEO, Jim Kerr, added: “Tony’s contribution, experience and knowledge within our business is second to none.  Over the last 20 plus years he has played an instrumental role in the growth of the organisation, from the early days to the multi-skilled, multi-location business we are today.  He’s a highly valued and much-liked member of the team and I couldn’t be more pleased to welcome him to the Board.  I have every confidence he will play a pivotal role in the business’s continued success, just as he has to date.”

The promotion comes as Astra Group further expands the team, with a range of openings across its design and delivery, sales, service, and technical departments.  Interested candidates are invited to get in touch at
