Some people live by the expression ‘for the love of cars’. Miles is one of them. He had a classic marketing education in the agency powerhouses of Ogilvy & Mather and Grey London, where he was a key player in any automotive client who walked through the door. Wanting to get even more immersed in the industry he moved client-side with marketing roles at Volkswagen Group, Mercedes-Benz and, for good measure, a spell in used car superstores where he gained invaluable sharp-end retail experience. Miles brings to the team an intimate understanding of brands, marketing strategies, corporate processes and, most importantly, a passion for linking the customer journey from on-line to off-line.
With a young excitable family, free time is a valuable commodity and Miles spends it wisely on his enthusiasm for cars and bikes, especially American hotrods.
