Gungho announces Giles Newman as new CEO
Gungho Marketing Ltd announced today that Giles Newman has been appointed as the new CEO of the company. An experienced business leader, Giles has assumed responsibility with immediate effect.
Gungho is the global leader in supporting specialised B2B technology vendors with raising brand awareness, increasing lead generation and setting high quality sales appointments. Trusted by hundreds of B2B technology vendors since 2007, Gungho are experts in new business discovery in specialist markets.
Following a £9 million investment from Mobeus Equity Partners in 2022, Gungho is going from strength to strength as it continues to grow, including further expanding its management team with this and other key hires.
Gungho has seen great success over its sixteen-year history, with ever-accelerating growth which attracted investment and has positioned the company for continued expansion. The company has recently expanded its footprint in the UK with new offices in Bournemouth to complement the existing operations in Dorchester and Charlotte, USA.
Demand for high-quality, effective business development support across the Regulatory Technology sector continues to grow. Gungho is the market expert at this, positioned to continue its growth story by increasing its range of offerings to its current world-class client base while also expanding into new markets.
Core to the success of Gungho is its unmatched proprietary database. Spanning the global regulatory sector, this highly curated and constantly update knowledge base enables Gungho to create highly effective, unique campaigns for clients in both well established and hard-to-reach markets.
Guy Blackburn, Mobeus Investor Director, commented:
“We are excited to welcome Giles as Gungho’s new CEO. Giles brings with him a wealth of commercial and leadership experience from a career that spans both the markets that Gungho is expert in, plus the other specialist data and international business development roles.
Gungho is positioned to go from strength to strength in 2024, as it continues to deliver reliable growth for its international client base.”
Giles graduated from the University of Exeter with a degree in Mathematics before spending his career in technology-oriented businesses. He worked initially in the Fintech world of trading technology and market information. From there, moved into legal and other information hungry sectors, leading sales and marketing teams, before moving into wider leadership roles in high growth international businesses.
Giles has extensive international experience and has managed teams in Europe, the US and APAC. His client-centric approach drives great client satisfaction and retention, helping businesses and their clients to thrive and benefit from excellent service and results.
