Founder and President
Brian set up Proactive PR after gaining extensive experience with in-house roles at BT, Siemens and Marconi which followed a successful career as newsroom journalist. The company today retains his original zeal for doing PR with commitment, total belief and a determination to always be “proactive”.
Brian brings his background as a journalist to his client work and serves as Proactive TV’s lead presenter and interviewer. A born networker, he has unparalleled knowledge of the telecoms sector and enjoys nothing more than attending industry events around the world. If he does take a moment away from work it will be to follow his beloved Nottingham Forest.
