I started my career in advertising at IMP, part of the DMB&B group, in 1986. Seven years later six of us IMP’ers joined HHCL & Partners to create a new integrated offering where I later became Managing Director. In 2002 I joined up with my three partners to launch VCCP which we sold to Chime Communications PLC in 2005 where I became a member of their Executive Board. I created Chime Ventures and worked across the Chime group including their Sports Marketing division. In 2013 I was elected President of the IPA. In October 2015 I joined the Executive Search firm Grace Blue as their global Chief Executive Officer. I am also a NED and investor in three start-up businesses.
