Stephen’s integrated approach to brand communications comes as a result of leading positions he has held in advertising, media and digital agencies, and the breadth of client briefs he has worked on.

His long year tenure at BJK&E Media, (now Maxus) saw him build a team and grow a highly profitable strategic media consultancy, leading global technology, publishing and FMCG accounts.

Stephen then joined the board of digital agency Interactive One, which went on to be backed by venture capitalist 3i, and was later sold.

As managing partner of Omnicom’s strategic marketing agency, Doremus, he led strategy on major accounts including Oracle and Cazenove Capital Management.

More recent positions have seen him lead global communications planning strategy for Unilever’s Dove Portfolio, and new product development projects for Mondelez.

Stephen graduated from Brunel University with a degree in marketing, and is a CIM Fellow.
