About Me

I’m a marketing professional with 30 years of experience managing brands, developing products and delivering winning results. In the 1990’s I was a category marketing manager at adidas UK. I then moved on to a career in the gambling industry marketing household names. I was fortunate to run an industry organisation marketing products worth billions to over 10,000 betting shops across the UK and Ireland. I now share my wealth of expertise with SME’s to deliver no-nonsense, cost effective marketing plans and outsourced marketing that delivers results.

My Clients

Over the years I have worked with companies from across different sectors including financial services, human resources, property, coaching, engineering, construction and digital marketing to name a few. I would say we specialise in engineering, construction, industrial and manufacturing sectors, not only because we get great results working in these areas, but I also find my no-nonsense approach is warmly welcomed.

My Suppliers

Miles Marketing is a ‘boutique’ agency, which means that I run the show and manage the accounts so that my customers get a very personal service. I have been lucky enough throughout my career to cover every aspect of marketing, but I use specialists to deliver this to my customers. I find each client the right supplier at the right budget.

My Achievements

The astronaut imagery encapsulates my role as a pioneer. Reflecting on my journey as an Outsourced Marketing Director, I recognise the trailblazing actions I’ve taken throughout my career.

One standout achievement was the creation of a specialist skateboard and BMX network in the UK during my tenure at adidas UK. Starting from scratch, I developed a specialist retail network and product range, and sponsored athletes within this niche market over three years. My innovative spirit didn’t stop there; I also served as the executive producer for a twice-daily live lotto draw, contributed to the invention of Virtual Racing, and produced the first gambling advert broadcast on terrestrial TV for the Irish Lotto Bet.

Innovation doesn’t always require grand gestures. A prime example of this was when I implemented a seemingly minor change at adidas, transforming how sales stock rooms operated. By inviting sales staff to join me in a tent on the adidas HQ lawn for a bacon roll and a meeting with silver medal-winning Olympian Paul Ratcliffe and his massive canoe, sales soared dramatically.

My approach isn’t about being different for the sake of it. Rather, it’s about staying true to my values and relishing the challenge of solving problems. My commitment to pioneering solutions and strategic innovations defines my career and underscores the quality and ingenuity I bring to every project as an Outsourced Marketing Director.
