Sales and Marketing Director

Following a 2 year stint working at WPP, my HRG career began way back in 1994. I initially joined the team in a new business role and my challenge was to open up new doors and win new clients. It was great fun and very exciting for the whole team as we started to work in many different market sectors and with big household brands.

When I look at how far we have come as a business over the last 20 years I have to pinch myself. We work with some incredible brands and retailers and this continues to grow each and every day. Being part of the Altavia Group has also been an incredible positive experience, not just for the business but for me personally. The Group continues to expand on a global scale and I get to meet and work with an incredible team of talented and driven individuals.

As a business we regularly ask our clients for feedback on our service levels and always top of the list is the friendly and responsive nature of how we work. This is testament to the hard work, dedication and passion each and every one of the team demonstrate on a daily basis. There are no egos here, everyone is down to earth and the flat culture encourages everyone to share their views and opinions. For me, this is what its all about. I work with some genuinely great people and they give me the motivation and drive to continue to push the business to the next level.

Outside of work, you’ll find me spending time with my wife and children, pottering around my garden tending to my vegetable beds, turning my hand to a DIY project or glued to my i-pad playing the latest strategy game.
