Starting Block


“We have used Marc on many occasions in the past on various types of sponsorship including Strathmore Water involvement of London 2017 World Athletics Championships. Working with Marc was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. He works in a very swift and diligent manner presenting multiple options to suit all budgets and needs. Marc and his support are thorough professionals and I would not hesitate to work with him again on future projects. Marc is very conscientious and thorough in his work with excellent attention to detail. On top of being very enjoyable to work with, he is dedicated and passionate about what he does.”

Iain Telford, Marketing Services Manager, Tennent Caledonian Breweries Ltd; formerly AG Barr (Strathmore)

“Marc is an outstanding sports marketing strategist and consultant. Good humoured, charming and sharp, I always find that any time I can get with Marc is good value. From sports management, brand development and commercial negotiations, Marc has a very broad experience. Annoyingly (for Marc), he is always my first phone call when I have a challenge or need advice. With his broad experience he can usually point me in the right direction, or with his black book of contacts, he knows someone who can. Unfailingly generous, Marc will never hesitate to put you in contact.”

Matthew Leopold, Brand Marketeer; formerly British Gas

“Marc is a diligent, highly motivated and effective team member of the sponsorship team. He is equally adept at prospecting and pitching to potential sponsors as he is in negotiating rights deals and managing very effective client relationships. Marc is immensely patient, plays a good long game to achieve the desired results and is without hesitation probably the best sponsorship rain maker operating in the UK at the moment.”

Kevin Johnson, Commercial Director, Millennium Dome (NMEC)

“Thank you so much for all the work you and your team did to support our commercial plan in such a tight time period – and for undertaking the difficult task of attracting sponsors. You managed to exceed the challenging IPC target, which was brilliant. Well done too for the sales on the IAAF side, made in what must have been the most constrained environment you have ever experienced.”

David Demolder, Executive Director, IAAF World Championships & World ParaAthletics Championships, London 2017

“Marc was great to work with on a partnership for The European Indoor Athletic Championships Glasgow 2019. In a context where our resources were constrained, we worked to realise an innovative solution that delivered for both the organising committee and ScotRail. Marc went out of his way to realise this approach – very much a can-do attitude that was a pleasure to work alongside!”

Peter O’Connell, formerly Head of Commercial ScotRail

“Marc has always impressed me with his passion for customer service and his enthusiasm for doing great work. He is fun to work with, has an energy that is outstanding and is always focused on solid results for the clients around him whatever the challenges he faces. Marc is well organised, focused and quick to understand the opportunity. A truly versatile, proven professional and a real nice guy; a pleasure to work with.”

Duncan Osborne, former Marketing Director Burger King, Qatar and British Airways

“Marc has an excellent understanding of a client’s sports marketing requirements, and he works hard to ensure that these are delivered with maximum professionalism and enthusiasm.”

Alex Romer, CEO We Are Nations

“Marc is one of the really good guys in the Sports Marketing Business…We’ve worked together on and off for 15+ years and he has always proved to be diligent, hardworking and highly skilled in the delivery of a rights sales programme. Marc has an exemplary network and has exceptional business judgement.”

Jeremy Bourke, former CEO Sportside and other roles in the sports industry
