The company I’d like to be keeping
If you don’t ask, you don’t get. So, if you’re on my wish list and want some fresh insights or help, I’d really like to talk to you. In no particular order:
Premium Automotive Manufacturer / Distributor / Dealer Group (on two wheels or four) – Mercedes-Benz Dealer Support, Finance, CharterWay and Aftersales, Ducati and Bentley all raised the prestige bar for me in the past.
Commercial Vehicle Manufacturer/Distributor (LCV to HCV) – Having worked on the launches of MAN and Mercedes-Benz trucks and vans, I know a little about what drives the commercial vehicle market.
Cookware, Bakeware, Small Electrical Appliances – I helped cook-up some tasty campaigns for Tefal over the years.
High-end Furniture – 18 years working with Ercol means I understand the art of understated style and the importance of craft with technology.
Fashion & Footwear – Experience with Gieves & Hawkes and my love of English tailoring and hand lasted shoes is legendary.
A restaurant or chain with a real point of difference – remember ‘The People’s Republic of Wagamama’ social media and fan engagement campaign? That was one from the Buckfield Lord era working with Alan Yau, the founder of Wagamama, Hakkasan and many other dining experiences since.
Any company exhibiting at the Counter Terror Expo or Security & Policing Home Office Event – I helped with taking Jacksons Fencing through the HOSDB/CAST, LPS and PAS 68 testing and approval process, so, strategic positioning and marketing to stakeholders and buyers in the high security perimeter protection sector is a core competence.
Vaping hardware and e-liquids Manufacturers / Distributors – I quit a very heavy smoking habit almost two years ago with help of e-cigarettes and today I’m an experienced vaper and enthusiastic member of the vaping community.
Smart people with ambition and brands with a point of difference – Large or small, start-up or established, I’d be extremely interested in working with you to maximise your full potential.
