Relate appoints new marketing chief

Relate, the relationship support charity, has appointed Arezo Shephard to the new role of director of fundraising and marketing. She will take over the new role imminently.

Shephard joins from EduAction, where she has been head of marketing and business for three years. She will now work on raising Relate’s brand profile and as well as driving interest in its lesser-known specific services. She will also focus on looking for long-term partnerships with other organisations.

Shephard says: “It’s a good time to review our overall product portfolio and plot a course ahead for the Relate brand. I intend to find new ways of broadening our appeal and reaching out to more people.”

Relate was started 70 years ago and offers advice, relationship counselling, sex therapy, consultations and support face-to-face, on the phone and through its website.
