How It All Started
I started my marketing career in the late 80’s working for a Plymouth based company in a global product marketing role. I then moved into international business development, spending a great deal of time in Asia taking our business from £100k to £5m per year within 3 years.
To progress my career, I accepted the role of Group Marketing Manager for a service based company in Teddington and helped grow revenue from £12m to £20m per year within 2 years.
It was during that time I started to focus on digital marketing by taking our bulky catalogue online. Sales boomed and I haven’t looked back since.
Returning To Devon
In 2006 I moved back to Devon to work for a multinational. Operating as a team of one in a new department, I had a very steep (re)learning curve to remember parts of marketing that in the past I would have delegated to one of my team. Immersing myself back into the “hands-on” digital marketing world stood me in great stead when I decided to branch out on my own as a Freelance Marketing Consultant 6 years later.
In 2012 I founded Rame Marketing, a Devon based marketing consultancy to help my clients to improve their online presence, increase lead generation and conversion rates and boost sales.
In 2017 I co-founded Walker Riley with my friend, Mathew Riley pulling our skills and resources together to provide a beefed-up offer with an extensive mix of client and agency experience in B2B and B2C environments.
My Latest Venture
My role at Andrewleonwalker.co.uk keeps me on my toes as in a quickly evolving marketing world I continually need to invest time in keeping my skills up-to-date (so you don’t have to).
I now help business owners, heads of departments, marketing agencies and fellow marketers by providing hands on support, consulting, training and advice on how to develop a strong online business presence, drive leads and increase sales on a sustainable basis
When I’m not working my time is spent walking the dog, driving my wife to garden centres and annoying my children.
