Michael is an entrepreneur, who started life as a Commodities Trader in London. He moved to Australia, where the transition in business took place. Having worked for a large multi-national, Michael learned quickly what makes a business successful (and what doesn’t) and took those skills into a mid-sized record company. There he managed a sales team and a marketing team both at wholesale and retail level, and was one of the youngest Executives in the industry.
He has subsequently owned and operated one of the largest independent advertising agencies and later co-founded a tech company that had the likes of Suncorp, Ford, Gloria Jeans and McDonalds as clients.
Marketing Director Centre grew out of Michael’s considerable experience running his own business and observing hundreds of other businesses along the way. He recognised the lack of leadership and process, but also the struggles that were constant because there was always a lack of bandwidth in key areas of expertise.
Marketing Director Centre was initially founded with just a single Marketing Director, but now encompasses a presence in every State in Australia, with some of the top marketing talent in the country. Such is the success of building a scalable business, Marketing Director Centre is now spreading into Singapore, New Zealand and the UK along with the sister company, Sales Director Centre.
