Introduction
I Started life as an ad sales manager and computer salesman. At age 19, I became the youngest ever magazine ad manager for EMAP.

I spent a lot of time in the direct marketing industry... Without realising at that time, a team of us were creating the foundations of what became lifestyle database marketing in the UK. In 1987, I helped create ConsumerQuest, an extremely comprehensive questionnaire completed by millions of households. I went on to help launch and run Consumer Response, MarketMaker, FactFind and The List Shop.

In 1994, I created a DM Consultancy MarketMaker before launching a new lifestyle database Consumer Access in partnership with Innovations Mail Order. Sold out to Consodata SA in 2000 and moved to Brussels to head up group strategy across Europe and China. The business was sold on a couple of times and is now owned by Axciom.
