Neil has over 20 years integrated experience. He started his career in direct marketing which was followed by some years in sales promotion and experiential marketing before embracing digital in 2000. Five years later he set up Saatchi & Saatchi’s UK digital offering before becoming Managing Partner at Grey London where heled the successful global Allianz pitch and subsequent business out of London, as well as setting up an office in Munich. 2011 saw the birth of Johnny Fearless, which Neil founded with Survivors UK and Diageo. Other business quickly followed including Davidoff and The Imperial War Museum. 2014 saw the agency produce a much-lauded campaign for IWM, which won awards including a D&AD pencil. However in 2015 Neil made the brave decision to shut the doors on Johnny Fearless. He dry-docked the creative ambitions he had had for the agency and started to look for more like-minded partners, which he found in his colleagues at Duke.
