As MD of Solent, I get to be involved in practically every element of the business, from implementing marketing strategy, to generating content in an ‘ideas meeting’. I work closely with our clients to make sure the talented team at Solent deliver the best possible results each time. I am charged with driving the growth of the business, our staff and clients.
I returned to the Island in 2009 after a career in brand marketing and destination management, which included a good stint at the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit, as well as being the Head of Tourism for London, working directly for the London Mayor in 2002.
Back on the Isle of Wight, I set out to create a successful and forward thinking agency, where talented people could thrive. I am pleased with how much Solent has grown over the past five years and I am excited for the next five.
I love the Solent because…
The Solent connects the Island with the rest of the UK, but keeps it just far enough away for us to be ourselves and a retain some character and independence.
