London, United Kingdom – Green Park Content (GPC), the global content marketing and brand publishing agency, has appointed William Goodenough, former chairman and co-founder of global design agency Design Bridge, to be the new chairman of its board of directors.
Goodenough will have the new appointment as an additional role, continuing as the governor of Goodenough College in London and Gresham’s School, as well as a trustee of conservation charity Norfolk Rivers’ Trust.
Goodenough brings with him his extensive experience in the industry. Prior to selling Design Bridge to creative transformation company WPP in 2019, he has previously held many senior leadership roles within the business, such as head of sales, managing director, and CEO, as well as chairman.

Meanwhile, Sven Lung, founder and CEO of Green Park Content, commented that they are honored and thrilled to welcome Goodenough as the chairman.
“After successfully founding BRANDALLEY as the top private sale operator in the UK with more than 15 million members, I founded Green Park Content with the goal to help brands become media brands by implementing brand publishing strategies. Will brings with him an amazing proven system that is already helping us to grow and break our own ceilings and deliver global scale,” said Lung.
Green Park Content APAC’s Managing Director Marcelo Bittencourt shared that everyone is receptive to Goodenough’s advice that comes from his decades of entrepreneurial success and his extensive list of achievements in the industry.
“Will’s appointment as chairman has raised the bar for our scale and growth plans significantly, and this is just the beginning. With Will’s guidance, we have a very clear business roadmap that allows GPC to be well-positioned for strong future growth in APAC and globally,” said Bittencourt.
