The University of Warwick has appointed Satnam Rana-Grindley to the role of Director of Communications – Corporate Brand in the Marketing, Communications, and Insights team.

Satnam will lead the communications team to strengthen the university's reputation in line with its 2030 vision to be one of the world’s exceptional universities.

Satnam said, "The University of Warwick is world-leading in its research and teaching and is a transformational force for good for individuals and society. I am passionate about working to create a better tomorrow through communications and this role presents a great opportunity for me to do just that.”

Satnam enjoyed a 21-year career in Broadcast Journalism at the BBC. She was part of the presenter lineup for BBC Midlands Today and up until 2020, the Arts and Culture Correspondent. Following her time at the BBC, Satnam transitioned to corporate communications at Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP (GBSLEP) where she was a member of the senior leadership team.

Our world-leading academics, researchers and students are dedicated to creating tomorrow's real-world solutions amidst fast-moving social, economic, and environmental challenges. 

“With a global footprint from our Warwick Venice Centre to partnerships with Monash University in Australia plus hubs in Asia, our story has a global reach. Our ambition is to amplify our impact on regional, national, and international platforms, ensuring our story reaches audiences far and wide.”
