Sector Experience


Managing Director International
The Martin Agency
Executive Vice President, Managing Director - International
A native of Newcastle, aka a Geordie, Ian joined the agency in 2001 after running the integrated UPS global account through the McCann network. His ability to calmly and smartly guide international brands in the global marketplace has been instrumental on numerous accounts, including ManpowerGroup, Kraft, ExxonMobil and Yum! Brands.
As we extend our reach around the world, Ian moved to Martin London as the Managing Director,International, where his responsibilities include focusing on the wider international development of The Martin Agency. And he’s pretty good at it, having worked in global management for more than 25 years.
Prior to Martin, Ian worked at McCann-Erickson London for 13 years as one of their top international account leaders, and at Publicis for nearly seven years, working across a wide range of business categories, including Personal Care, Retail and Cosmetics with Boots, and OTC Pharmaceuticals with GSK. Ian joined our Executive Committee in 2013, as its first non U.S.-based member.
When not in the office, you will typically find Ian traveling to one of our other offices, to see a client in another country, or with his wife to see their two daughters in Newcastle and Liverpool. He also has an affinity for fast cars.
