Biography

I started out in Marketing for Lyons Tetley as Product Manager for Lyons Ground Coffees, before moving into Advertising with Foote Cone and Belding as an Account Director on Colgate Palmolive.

I then joined Saatchi and Saatchi where I was promoted to Board Director and then Group Account Director. My accounts included Proctor and Gamble, Mars, Department of Employment and the RAC among many others. As Director of Saatchi and Saatchi Strategy, I specialised in working with business startups.

I then set up my own marketing consultancy, Walton Evans. A client, GTECH invited me to join them, first as European Marketing Director, and then as Vice President for Television. I built and grew a worldwide TV Lottery Show business, was a member of the team that set up Simulti, an interactive TV transactions business and took part in the company’s Leadership Programme.

I then founded Randomaker Ltd to market a TV Lottery product which I jointly created and patented and which was licensed to GTECH and a number of lotteries.

My venture ionoco Ltd is a leading broadcast technology company, of which I was co-Founder and Chairman.

Since setting up as a consultant in 2013, I’ve been a Board Member of About The Funeral Ltd, Publicate Ltd and Nudjed Ltd, have advised numerous start ups and have recently returned from a year-long spell as Marketing Director for the South African National Lottery in order to launch Loteri Cymru, of which I am now a non-executive Director.
