My fascination for marketing started whilst I was at school and had the chance to do a work placement at a local ad agency. After graduating from university in Leeds, I went into account management, working with The Daily Mail, American Express and Bosch, and handling new business. I learnt now redundant information about the print and TV process, but thankfully also learnt the importance of brands, ROI and exploring the then relatively new ‘internet’ for our clients. Since moving into headhunting ten years ago, I have launched a successful start-up recruitment business and worked as an independent consultant advising agencies, client side organisations and production companies on the digital re-engineering of their production capability and how to secure the talent required to deliver their offering. Outside of work I’m sports mad. Due to football injuries and age, I retired my playing days and took up cycling instead. I get my football fix at weekends as a shareholder and season ticket holder at non-league, Tonbridge Angels Football Club. I’m also married and a father to two wonderful boys. I joined The Talent Business as a canvas to provide senior operations and delivery talent, for client side, agency side and production businesses globally.
