Albany’s Advisory Board works with the company’s Board of Directors to support all aspects of Albany’s strategic direction and development, and to challenge and encourage the Albany team in delivering the best possible work for its clients.
Albany Managing Director Dieter Loraine said: “We are delighted to welcome Lord Black on board. As a communications and media development company, we feel his unique combination of experiences in the field of media will be particularly invaluable as Albany moves forward into an exciting period of growth.”

Past positions have included Director of Communications for the Conservative Party, and Director of the Press Complaints Commission. Lord Black is currently chairman of the Press Standards Board of Finance and of the Commonwealth Press Union Media Trust, positions which underline his clear interest in press and media freedom, both at home and abroad.
Loraine added: “At Albany, we are proud to support and work towards developing freedom of the press in many or the world’s most challenging environments. We are certain that Lord Black’s energy and insights into this area can only improve the quality and impact of the work we undertake.”
