Ben joined the Summit team in 2006, bringing a wealth of experience developed over an extensive career in retail marketing.
After graduating from Hull University, he trained as a professional marketer and went on to do a Diploma in Marketing.
Ben has worked for a number of companies in the online market place, including Boots and E.ON. At Boots, he was responsible for the marketing launch of a joint venture with Granada TV called “Wellbeing”. This was a TV channel and website promoting health and beauty expertise, advice and products. Later, Ben was responsible for the launch of www.boots.com.
Formerly a Summit client, Ben was impressed by the company’s emphasis on a strong working relationship and its focus on KPIs. He decided this fresh approach was different to the normal agency style – and something he wanted to experience from the “other side of the fence.”
Ben is married and a father to two children, Poppy and Harry, and the family is his core focus out of work. Ben enjoys sports when he has time; in particular golf, squash, badminton and football, generally followed by a pint to aid recovery.
