Career highlights

Twenty-two years without being found out.

Most cringeworthy moment of your career

An uncannily accurate but none-too-flattering imitation of my then boss talking to his girlfriend on the phone, done for the amusement of my colleagues but without the knowledge that the source of my inspiration was well within earshot. Mike, you know it was affectionate really, don't you?

Best thing about your job

I spend other people's money on things that interest me.

Worst thing about your job

Not everyone is quite as interested in this stuff as I am.

Advice for a wannabe A Lister

Get yourself a proper ambition.

If you could be anyone else in this business, who would it be?

Call me boring if you like, but I'm very comfortable in my own skin.

What would you do on a sabbatical?

Work with the microfinance charity Five Talents to help the active poor start and build businesses in the developing world.

Your USP?

The approachable technocrat.

What would you change about yourself?

I'd be a slightly better guitarist than my son.

Favourite media

Family Guy, The Guardian.

Favourite shop

Peter Cook's Guitar World.

What’s the biggest lie you’ve told?

I once managed to hide the fact that I'd overspent a client's press budget by £100,000.

How many toilets do you own?

Three.

What can’t you live without (apart from family)?

My bass trombone (a Holton TR180A).

Lowdown

The head of MEC's research division, media boffin \"Fletch\" played a large role in MEC's good run on new business this year – what the man doesn't know about ROI isn't worth knowing. He's also heavily involved in charity work, but doesn't like to blow his own trumpet. Ironic, considering he's a talented trombone player.
