The ATC’s Council is delighted to announce the election of Council Member Corinne Saynor Smith as Vice-Chair. Corinne replaces outgoing Vice-Chair Phil Tennent, who is stepping down from his role on the ATC Council to join client-side technology company TDSi.

Corinne Saynor Smith is Managing Director at the Liverpool-based ATC member company International Translations Limited. Returning from time away exploring the jungles and savannahs of Africa, Corinne took over the family business in 2014 and has since then been working hard to add her own stamp to the business, whilst maintaining the reputation of the company and the high quality of the services provided.

Corinne is looking forward to getting more closely involved with driving the ATC’s initiatives and strategy:

“I am very sales and marketing focused, and I believe my skills will complement those of the ATC’s existing leadership, expand its membership, and widen its reach. I look forward to working with the ATC’s Commercial Collaborations Lead on forging relationships with business organisations, and have already set up meetings with my local Chamber of Commerce. I’m also keen to get stuck in with strategy work, engaging the ATC’s Council and current and prospective member companies.”

International Translations Limited was founded by Corinne’s mother and father, and her father was ATC Chair for a number of years. Although being a more senior member of the ATC Council has undoubtedly changed since then, the responsibility has not, and taking on the Vice-Chair role is not a decision Corinne took lightly, “The role and responsibility of Vice-Chair of the ATC mean a huge deal to me, and I am very excited about bringing in a fresh perspective.”

The ATC’s Chair Ruth Partington welcomes the Vice-Chair nomination with open arms, “The ATC’s Council elected Corinne unanimously as its new Vice-Chair, and she has hit the ground running, bringing new ideas and strategies to the table. Taking charge of a family business is no mean feat, but International Translations Limited is thriving under Corinne’s direction, and we look forward to putting her energy, enthusiasm and expertise to good use at the ATC.”
