Update from the President
Dear St. George’s Society supporter,
At the Annual General Meeting in January, we informed our membership of the forthcoming and exciting developments at St. George’s Society—including the launch of a new visual identity in the fall of this year.
Thanks to the generosity of Advisory Council member, Sir Martin Sorrell, we were provided an opportunity to work with the talented WPP branding agency, Landor. Over the past 18 months, they conducted extensive research of our history and in-depth workshops with many of the Society’s stakeholders and created a fresh look and feel for the organization.
Many of you are familiar with GEORGE, a co-brand introduced in 2011 to create social and networking opportunities for young professionals in New York. The initiative was tremendously successful and attracted many new members to the Society, but it is now time to unify St. George’s and GEORGE under one consolidated brand. The new St. George’s Society “look” celebrates both our notable heritage and our exciting future and we will share updates about the development of this process over the coming weeks.
As we approach our 250th anniversary in 2020, we look forward to the changes ahead that will propel St. George’s Society into the next 250 years.
Phillip Warner, OBE
