Head of Digital
Huawei (UK)

Currently heading up UK digital marketing activities for telecom giant Huawei in the UK.

Prior to this I was leading the social media business at Bauer Media UK across the whole group working with brands like Kiss, Grazia, Heat, Empire & Magic to name but a few. Before that I spent a lot of my career to date at Viacom International Media Networks, starting and leading social media at MTV in the UK and also running Comedy Central digital in the UK for a bit too! Have also worked with most other Viacom brands like Channel 5 and Nickelodeon.

In my earlier career I used to run my own online PR businesses and websites where I was lucky enough to work with a number of global brands.


‘The Social Buzz Awards celebrate the importance and excellence in social media today; I’m honored to be a judge again this year. Looking forward to seeing innovative, cutting edge campaigns and strategies from some of the brightest talent around. Results are what count, so hoping we have some numbers to wow us!’
