About me

I’ve worked in the world of marketing and communications for over 20 years, including 8 as a CEO.
I’ve held senior positions in Canada, the U.S., Europe and Asia Pacific – while living and working in cities as diverse as Toronto, Chicago, Jakarta, Shanghai, Bangkok, Moscow and Singapore.
I’ve worked at giant multi-nationals, and tiny creative boutiques, across a wide range of sectors from fast moving consumer goods, to finance, pharmaceutical, technology, fashion, automotive, travel, retail, and government.
I’ve developed global, regional, and local campaigns for a list of world-class marketers and brands, that includes Procter & Gamble, The Coca-Cola Company, Google, Microsoft, Toyota, Air Asia, Acer, HSBC, Mondelez, Danone, Novartis, Budweiser, Uniqlo and Levis.
As a CEO I’ve managed agencies through the challenges of both rapid growth and steady decline, as well as the 2008 financial crisis. And recruited, coached and mentored talent across a diverse range of cultures and business environments.
