Geoff spent most of his early career working in marketing for a number of UK banks, specialising in Customer Relationship Management, before moving to insurer HomeServe plc. As Customer Marketing Director, he oversaw a ten-fold increase in its scale over an eight year period. Following a career break, where he travelled the world with his young family, he joined Esendex in 2010, looking for a new challenge.
The business at that time was around 20 people, turning over £3m. Geoff helped grow the business to £10m of revenue, applying many of the sales and marketing techniques he’d developed in financial services and led the Darwin Private Equity backed Management Buy Out in 2013. Continued growth, acquisitions and investment led to the subsequent sale to Hg in 2017, and today Geoff leads a global business of almost 250 people, with sales heading towards €100m.
Geoff lives in Nottingham with his family and enjoys football, tennis and live music. He’s also a Non Executive Director and Governor of Nottingham Trent University.
