North East Connected

Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

The marketer who doesn’t want to leave the North East


Jun 8, 2017

Following on from CIM’s launch of 50 North East Marketing Greats in March, they invite you to meet Neil McLoram, Communications & Business Development Manager at Brewin Dolphin, financial and wealth management company based in Newcastle.

This initiative aims to develop and retain marketing talent in the North East region.  Diane Earles, Network Manager for CIM, explains “‘North East Marketing Greats’ are marketing figureheads from some of the biggest brands in the region and industry sectors that are driving the Northern Powerhouse economy.  Through the ‘Marketing Greats’ we want to provide insight into the importance of a strategic marketing function and to inspire both existing marketing professionals and young people considering a career in marketing.  Each ‘Marketing Great’ is profiled in an online case study which includes their words of wisdom for aspiring marketers alongside their career story and why they enjoy working in the region.”  She continued, “Developing our original ‘Great North East Brands’ initiative, which ran for a number of years, ‘Marketing Greats’ provides a regional platform for marketing to be recognised as having a key role in business growth while celebrating the number of senior marketing roles located in the North East.”

Like Neil, who has had opportunities to leave the North East in the past but never has.  Neil said, “I truly believe that there’s no better work-life balance available anywhere else in the UK. Career development is easy, the people are fantastic, and you can enjoy a better standard of life here.”

Neil joined Brewin Dolphin in June 2015, following a number of PR and Communications roles in the Police, Local Councils and Destination Marketing organisations after graduating from Sunderland University with a Communications Studies degree.
