Who we are
turntwo is the UKs leading marketing agency to the private equity industry and portfolio companies.
turntwo was founded in 2014 by Mark South. Having spent almost 20 years of his career working in management consulting, industry marketing roles and latterly a leading global advertising agency network, Mark recognised that the pace of evolution in marketing departments is significantly lagging behind the evolution in customer behaviours and attitudes, and this situation presents the biggest threat to SMEs, many of whom are working with limited budgets, limited resource and find it difficult to attract top talent to relatively unknown brands.
I manage all key private equity, venture capital, and M&A advisory relationships across Europe. I started my career in management consulting with PwC, IBM and PA Consulting, as well as industry marketing roles, and most recently held an EMEA Board position with Ogilvy & Mather in London. In 2014, I founded turntwo – an agency to fuse the analytical rigour of management consulting and the creative thinking of an advertising agency to address modern business growth challenges.
Director, Executive Coaching
I am an Executive Coach. I typically work with business executives, business owners and entrepreneurs on strategies relating to leadership, business performance, sales and marketing effectiveness. I believe in the power of people to drive growth, measured by increased revenue and profit attainment. Previously, I have worked with many FTSE 100 companies, magic circle law firms and Big 4 accountancy firms.
Director, Brand Strategy
I am a marketing strategy expert. Having been a marketing director in both B2B and B2C industry sectors, I know the value of an actionable strategy in uniting people around a common business purpose. I am an expert in the translation of customer research and analysis into a plan of action with clear roles, accountabilities and budgets, whatever channels are most appropriate. Most recently, I developed the strategy for one of the most successful (and awarded) B2B marketing campaigns in 2015.
Director, User Experience
I am a digital design and UX expert. I have experience both in-house and with agencies working with clients from a wide variety of sectors. I follow a strategic approach; from user experience, to concepts and user interface design it is crucial to start by identifying a brands strengths and weaknesses, followed by getting to know a brand; their ethos, culture and audience, only then can you successfully answer a brief. I love the challenge of translating these foundations of a brand into the exciting world of digital.
Director, Sales Effectiveness
I am a sales effectiveness specialist. Having worked with a number of global FMCG businsesses and SMEs on five continents, I know what it takes to build a highly effective integrated commercial model, with sales and marketing working harmoniously to deliver accelerated business growth.
