About Me

A ‘Digital Native’, a ‘Smart Creative’ I’ve been called them all! Tricky to manage yet the C-suite like the results. Our teams love us and agencies respect us.

I’ve worked in eCommerce since online checkouts began. Relaunched an enterprise level website twice. Once to consolidate around 400 companies, once to fix a poor IT decision. I’ve helped connect intranet, client delivery and HR channels. I’ve created a blog Hubspot named among the Top 5 Business Blogs in the UK (with supporting social channels). I’ve built a Global Digital Marketing function, in-house video production services and united global creative teams. 

…Oh! and convinced Channel 4 to make my TV show 🤷🏽‍♂️

"Glenn and I collaborated with myself leading a digital agency team and Glenn heavily involved in our digital projects for GfK. Glenn has a strong strategic focus and is able to break these strategies down into project deliverables, always keeping the overall goals in focus, but highly flexible in the delivery phases when collaborating with our agency. As one of our main contacts and project contributors on the client side, he always provided us with valuable insights and ideas needed by our teams to deliver the complex solutions we jointly concepted. I would gladly collaborate with Glenn again in the future, regardless of the business relationship."
"Glenn is a very vigorous and visionary manager, who knows how to co-ordinate assignments and support the work-force he either manages or works with. He is very pleasant and easy to work with. He is highly competent, hardworking, and very experienced in everything that is digital marketing and CRM related. Glenn thinks strategically and acts tactically, with an eye on the bottom line. He creates a welcoming, inclusive, zero-ego culture that pervades those around him. The net result is that he tends to get the best from those who work with him. I'd recommend Glenn without hesitation"
