Louks previously worked for the Fire Protection Association (FPA) for over 15 years, having joined the FPA as marketing executive. He was then promoted to head of subscription services, before becoming head of membership, events, and publishing.

“I am excited to have joined IABM and I can’t wait to get started on delivering our extensive global events programme,” said Louks. “The professional skills and experience I have attained, working predominately for membership organisations and bodies, will be a natural fit to my new role and responsibilities here at IABM, with the international member profile a real attraction to accepting the position," he added.
“My previous roles have helped me understand the unique challenges faced by many membership companies regardless of sector, including recruitment, retention, engagement, and benefit provision. With the broadcast and media technology industry going through unprecedented levels of change, I look forward to meeting with as many of our members as possible, learning more about the industry, and developing key relationships,” Louks concluded.
Lisa Collins, head of marketing, IABM, added, “Dominic brings a wealth of marketing and events experience, predominately from within membership organisations, and is a fantastic addition to our skilled marketing team. He will play a leading role in developing and executing our series of hosted global events, including our new Executive Summit Series, as well as our presence at other leading industry shows.”
