Was one of the founding members of Acceleration a Digital Technology and Marketing Transformation Consultancy, sold to WPP Digital...which led me to be part of the turn around of Wunderman, modernising their Global Data capability and Data Products. Leading to the eventual merger with JWT to create Wunderman Thompson where I was part of the Global Executive Leadership team.
