Goodman Derrick - Founder Supporters of the Creative Industries Federation


Goodman Derrick are pleased to announce that they are founder supporters of the Creative Industries Federation (CIF) alongside 200 organisations and senior individuals from the UK's creative industries.  

CIF is a membership organisation that "represents the views of the UK's creative industries, while challenging and assisting the sector to stay ahead of the international competition."

It is the brainchild of Sir John Sorrell and other senior figures from the cultural and creative industries who "came together to try to find a way of giving the sector a stronger and more unified voice."

Further information about CIF can be found at www.creativeindustriesfederation.com and a list of founder supporters is available here, www.creativeindustriesfederation.com/supporters. 

Paul Herbert, Goodman Derrick's head of Media, Communications, and Technology, commented:

"There are many organisations that do a great job of representing the various sectors of our cultural and creative industries but CIF's whole industry approach is new and it's also long overdue. Congratulations to them on a highly successful launch, we are delighted to be founder supporters and we're looking forward to a long association."
