An ex Army Officer, my career in marketing communications began in 1996 when I realised that being a member of a touring rock band, was likely to be a short-lived career and was drawn towards the creative world of marketing solutions.
Since then I have focused on creating & delivering experiences for some of the world’s leading brands including: Diageo, BAT, Shell, BMW, Huawei, Jaguar Land Rover, Jumeirah, Amex, RBS, Emirates Airlines, PepsiCo, TJX & Microsoft.
With a mixture of agency and brand side roles, I have been fortunate to work across a broad range of sectors at a global, regional and local level and am well versed in navigating complex organisational structures and managing multiple stakeholder relationships to successfully stimulate growth for the brands I have partnered with..
In June 2016, I returned to join Geometry Global (flagship agency of WPP’s global brand activation network), as Head of Experiences and a Global Business Partner .
I am passionate about the role and value brands can play in an ever increasingly experience led, digitally enabled world. And their potential to not only leverage but also influence culture.
I am also an active board member of Elevate (The mentoring programme for the events and experiential industry) and a Trustee for Action for M.E.
A lifelong supporter and sometimes player of rugby, I place great emphasis on physical and mental wellbeing. Am also an avid musician (piano and guitar) and father of two gorgeous boys.
