About me:

Job Title: Marketing Lead

What I do: It turns out that while they are amazing financial planners, the Clarus team are not so good at shouting about it, and it turns out that shouting is what I am good at.

Brief Background: I moved from Dublin to the UK in 2006. I have a degree in marketing and 15 years experience working with the smallest of clients to the biggest, both on the agency and client side including; DHL/Manchester United, Colgate and Hertz.

Favourite part of my Job: Helping the Clarus brand grow and grow in an ever changing marketing landscape. I know for as long as I am doing this job, I will always be learning and will never be bored.

Outside Work: Cooking, in a playground somewhere or updating my retro 1970s house

Favourite Place: Ireland’s Eye- a little island off Howth in Dublin where I used to go all the time.

Secret Skill: I am a classically trained singer (although this was ruined once I started my career in shouting…)

Favourite Era: 1970’s- if I could go back in time, you’d find me shimmying in Studio 54 on a multicoloured dancefloor.
