OUR PEOPLE

Our Goals

Our goals at the NTIA are many and varied. Primarily, we strive to shape national opinions about nighttime industries — within government and local authorities, and among the general public. But we also support the individuals and businesses that knit our incredible industry together, aiming to foster working environments that are diverse, inclusive and mindful of mental health, while simultaneously raising awareness about the unrivalled cultural output of the after dark economy.

To do this, we’ve curated a team of pioneering professionals who work tirelessly towards the cause. Our Board of Directors features an array of the industry’s most experienced figures, each of whom is dedicated to promoting the interests of the NTIA’s members.

As we emerge from the pandemic, our people are more important than ever. We’ve already proven the strength of our community but now is the time to innovate and evolve, in order to build a better future for everyone involved in the nighttime industries. Join us as we continue to push things forward!

Louise Ward

Operations Support Manager

I've enjoyed the whole spectrum of the night-time industry, from rave nights in Watford to cheesy club nights in Luton, muddy nights at Glastonbury to 'let's have it' nights at Wembley, mosh pit nights at Brixton to swanky gin nights in Mayfair. But my favourite place is my local Northamptonshire pub. This industry is ingrained in my music, social, and family culture. I couldn't live without it.

Best song of all time: Live Forever, Oasis.
Best dance track: Sandstorm, Darude.

Paula Munteanu

Events Coordinator

Hi!!
I am an young and enthusiastic person who graduated university in the middle of the pandemic. The 2020 graduation was challenging due to the circumstances while facing a lot of uncertainties; therefore It made me to understand the people needs and it motivates to me to do my best in order to help the society I live in.

I joined the team in June 2021 as part of the events department and I am excited to contribute to the change and to make sure that the businesses we support will be able to have the best experiences.’

Cherrelle Blake Wilson

Events Coordinator

Hi I’m Cherrelle or Elle for short. I Graduated from the University of Westminster with a degree in Tourism and Events Management. Events is my first love followed very closely by nightlife. I am thrilled to bring together two of my favourite passions and adding my knowledge, creativity and nightlife experience to the NTIA.

Maya Stone

PA Admin Assistant

I've been mad about electronic music for decades, however my musical life kicked off with a love of 60s music then classical music (playing piano, recorder, viola) and has been punctuated by forays into (listening to) jazz, heavy metal, rock, reggae and more. Cutting my oldskool raver teeth in London clubs at the tender age of fifteen, geek outsider me relished the inclusivity and celebration of diversity I found in especially the gay venues in London.

I have since run a (tiny) handful of club nights and presented an online radio show called DeepDownDance on a couple of radio stations which was entirely geared towards promoting the artists and labels. It seemed a natural progression for me to start my own record label and support the music I love in a more in-depth fashion. DeepDownDirty is an altruistic record label and community, designed to connect creatives and provide support in the sometimes isolating world of music production; collaboration and building connections keep many of the people I work with happy.

I firmly believe that electronic music and night-life contribute to culture and people's lives in a positive way and it is for this reason that I am proud and delighted to work for the NTIA. 'Good people doing good things' as anyone who knows me will know I am fond of saying :).

"I joined the NTIA in the immediate aftermath of the tragic enforced closure of The Arches, and joined the board shortly after.

Never has the work of the NTIA been so pressing or so relevant, and never has supported it been so vital!"

Obi Asika

CEO & Founder of Echo Location

I have worked in the music industry for over 20 years and as an agent for 15 of those years, during this time I have worked with artists such as Pendulum, Chase and Status, Tinie Tempah, Wizkid and Marshmello to name but a few. In 2012 I started my own agency, Echo location Talent. Echo is a global talent agency that prides itself on not just representing, but also developing artists from right across the musical spectrum to ensure they reach their potential. The agency and team has grown from strength to strength and recently we have opened an office in Lagos, Nigeria and a sport office in Manchester. Some noteable achievements during my time as an agent are; the first agent to sell out the O2 arena with a Drum and Bass act, the first and only agent to sell out both the O2 and Wembley with a UK Hip Hop act which I have done twice and the first agent to sell out the O2 arena with an Afrobeats artist. I am also proud to be a co-creator and co-founder of Afro Nation. Over the years it has always been a struggle to get the commercial industry to recognise the true value of Afrobeats even though we have been able to sell out prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and the O2 arena in recent times. With the success of these shows and the obvious demand, we made the decision to put together our own festival to showcase Afrobeats artists instead of waiting for the industry to wake up. Afro Nation was a complete success and sold out in a matter of days. Following on from the success in Portugal, we are excited to have launched Afro Nation Ghana and Afro Nation Puerto Rico plus many more. I feel it is my job and responsibility to help force change and make the global entertainment industry accept new ideas and stakeholders.
