About Me

I have over 35 years experience in Consulting, Marketing, Advertising and Business and specialise in lottery and gaming. I’ve worked as a consultant since 2013. I’m based in Penarth, South Wales and speak some Welsh as well as fluent French and Spanish.

Sector Experience

I can turn my hand to the majority of sectors but know most about the following:

  • Lottery and Gaming
  • Start ups
  • Technology
  • Media and Television
  • Advertising and Communications
  • Grocery/Consumer Goods


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.

Since setting up as a consultant in 2012, I’ve been a Board Member of About The Funeral Ltd, Publicate Ltd and Nudjed Ltd, have advised numerous start ups and spent over a year as Marketing Director for the South African National Lottery. I also launched Welsh Lottery, Loteri Cymru.

My Network

I have a trusted network of associates and former colleagues in design, innovation, social media, television, research, advertising, PR, finance and law whom I can bring to the table as required.
