For eight years I headed up the FIFA team at ADM. This team worked with all their sponsors – including some of the biggest brands in the world – to develop their merchandise and POS campaigns in support of key FIFA tournaments. I made sure that ADM developed creative merchandise that supported the sponsors’ brand values and goals for the tournament.

The 2014 World Cup™ in Brasil allowed us to develop original ideas that tapped into the country’s confidence, music, and love of football.


After the vuvuzela of South Africa, ADM pushed for a Brasilian equivalent. We developed the ‘Brasil Bottle’ – a unique combination of the distinctive local apito whistle and caixa rattle, packaged in the iconic Coke bottle shape. It was one of the most original and sought-after items at the Word Cup, adding to the Coca-Cola brand.

That’s good brand support.

Traditional Marketing

July, 2014 · By PrichAdmin

In my 25-year career in marketing I have extensive experience across the whole marketing mix.

From above-the-line TV advertising – the Dudley Moore work at my first advertising agency LHS for Tesco, which helped get them to their dominant position of today.

To below-the-line promotional events – for Mercedes, when with Orckid Design, I noticed the correlation between A class buyers and an interest in gardening. I developed Mercedes show gardens at RHS Shows. These delivered the most leads, ever, for a Mercedes A class promotion at the time.



I watch over the many new and emerging tools but am not blinded by technology, instead building an understanding on how to exploit digital solutions  as part of the overall mix.



Digital Solutions

Today, digital dominates the marketing landscape. With FIFA I led the transformation of their licensing tool to a fully digitally driven engine, simplifying process and generating data/feedback to improve future sponsor marketing provision.


To ensure I understand the ever changing marketing environment I graduated from the Squared Online course, developed with Google. I was elected by my peers as “inspirational” and welcomed their feedback after every project.

Set me a marketing challenge and I’ll deliver.
