Marcus is NOHA’s Client Services Director. Trained as a Graphic Designer and creative, Marcus worked on a number of FMCG, food and drink accounts including Bulmers Cider, Unilever, United Distillers, Cutty Sark Whisky, Craft, Walls and Elida Gibbs. Following a strong desire to get closer to the client and the brief, Marcus spent increasingly more time with clients directly the better to understand their needs, desires and expectations. Prior to joining NOHA in 2008 Marcus was a partner in Holly Benson Communications for 10 years, a business that was sold to Real Affinity PLC in 2006.
The internal workings and management of these businesses meant less and less time with clients and the move to NOHA and a ‘no nonsense’ agenda means Marcus is working where he is best, working directly with clients and solving communications problems.
