I’ve always had an eye for success, whether it’s commercial or otherwise. The prospect of building something new with the tree was too good to turn down – it’s a young, exciting organisation that’s ready to blossom.
I’ve spent many years as a professional marketeer and communicator, with a career stretching from Procter and Gamble, Arthur Guinness, through Grampian Holdings to be MD of Saatchi Direct in Edinburgh. Highlights include the building of an agency, taking turnover from £6m to £26m in just 3 years; and the creation of the National Neighbourhood Watch Association as part of General Accident’s (now Aviva) programme of Corporate Social Responsibility.
In 1995 I joined dbda, the CSR/Education agency, responsible for the long running campaigns and programmes with Zurich, BP, BMW, and Marks and Spencer, amongst others.
