FESPA Board is enriched by new member, FESPA UK’s Nicole Spencer

Nicole Spencer was unanimously elected during the FESPA General Assembly that took place in Madrid, Spain.

As President of the FESPA UK Association since 2018, Nicole has been instrumental in supporting wide-format digital, textile, industrial and specialist printers in the UK.

In 2020, Nicole became Managing Director of RMC Digital Print, where she had been Operations Director since 2011. Located in Hull, England, the company produces wide format applications for the signage, events, display and set design industries.

FESPA President Christophe Aussenac comments: “With over eleven years of direct experience in the speciality print industry, Nicole has been invaluable in diversifying and expanding the range of insight and support the FESPA UK association offered its members over the past five years.”

“As a FESPA Board member, she adds valuable commercial experience from running her own wide format print business, specialising in signage, set design and exhibitions. Her particular focus on signage will help us to ensure that FESPA events and products serve the diverse needs of our worldwide sign making community, and of print businesses expanding into signage services.”

Nicole Spencer adds: “Having served on the FESPA UK board for almost five years, I’m delighted to be voted onto the FESPA board. As a FESPA UK member for many years, I found the Association’s business support and guidance invaluable, and I’m looking forward to continuing to work with FESPA’s member associations. One of my focus areas will be promoting the print industry and attracting young talent, where I hope my previous career experience in recruitment will be advantageous. I also want to apply my knowledge of signage to develop FESPA’s offering in this market and encourage sign companies to join their national FESPA associations.”

Lascelle Barrow has stepped down from his regional FESPA Board responsibilities representing the UK and has been awarded the life-long status of Honorary Board Member, in recognition of his outstanding personal contribution to the development of FESPA and the speciality printing community.
