A new year and a new start…
I have the pleasure to announce that i’ve joined the great team at Blueglass (www.blueglass.co.uk | @blueglass) as Director of Strategy. This was a long time coming, with the MD (Kevin Gibbons) and I wanting to work together for some time – waiting for the parts to slot together. The role itself and what I will be doing over the coming months/years will stay internal for now as there is a lot for us to put together and create. However its an exciting time for the business and for me personally.
So comes 2014 and a new challenge.
It all started back when I was at ShortBreaks at Holidayextras where I got to develop my passion for digital working in multiple channels and with some great people. The background in analytics and commercial at HX combined with the management of digital channels pushed me forward towards the work i’ve been doing in the last few years.
I’ve had the opportunity at Stream:20 to work with some of the biggest companies in the world (Sky, Sony, EA) for some lovely clients. Advising them on day to day tactical decisions through to creating a yearly strategy or formulating a full multi-channel multi-device marketing budget.
However i’ve seen an opportunity in the marketplace – and this is what i’ve joined Blueglass to target. I want to work with the team there to build something great, something inspiring and something to be proud of. I believe that in the coming years I will have the best time of my career, I will learn and grow as a leader, marketer and a person.
I’d like to thank everyone who has helped me along in my journey so far – wanted to name some specific people:
My Family – especially my parents, David Gray, Simon Hagger, Aaron Stephens, Dan Barker, Paul Rogers, Ashley Lindley, James Cornwall, Ben Pritchard and Ned Poulter
I’m looking to a prosperous future and look forward to catching up with you all soon!
