Hello, my name is Rod and you can usually find me in either Edinburgh and London. I have 14 years hands on marketing experience and can advise on growth strategies, marketing teams and integrating marketing with product and sales functions.

Most recently, I was CMO at an electric car subscription startup, that was acquired. I worked with the team from when it was just the co-founders to very recently, where after a 2 year period of significantly scaling up and integrating into the acquiring network of companies, I left to build my own startup.

My background is in performance marketing. Before my CMO role, I founded and scaled a specialist performance marketing agency. We managed £8 million in media spend annually and I exited the business in 2020.
