Today, we will be introducing our Chief Marketing Officer. Please see below our interview with Marcus Leathwood.
Q1 When did you join Acuity?
'December 2012, having had 12 months off on a planned extended paternity leave. I joined as an Account Manager, and over time returned to my Marketing heritage to support our growth and transformation.'
Q2 What’s your role and key responsibilities at Acuity?
'I currently split my time as Acuity’s Chief Marketing Officer and Managing Director of our On-Demand business unit. On the Marketing side it's brand, demand generation, customer communication and the drive for digital and social excellence.
As the MD of our On-Demand Business Unit we have a great team across Sales and Operations, so it’s more leadership, customer engagement, relationships with Vendors and ISV’s to ensure we can support customer requirements and fulfill our growth ambitions as well as delivering fantastic projects for our customers.'
Q3 In your opinion, what make Acuity different?
'Our people, the passion and our agile nature to support change and transformation both internally and with our customers.'
Q4 What are your Key Goals each month?
'Keeping Acuity top of mind; be the Sage Business Partner people and customers want to work with.
Drive change, be the Enthusiastic one, push the team forward on Social and Digital transformation.'
Q5 What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
'My family are my life, and thankfully alongside that I get to enjoy a range of activities. I love cooking and BBQ’s. Lego creates a great bond with my son and also a passion reborn from my childhood. Always up for something new and testing myself, so I did some graffiti and started growing Bonsai trees! Whether a mountain bike ride, a trip to the beach, a camping weekend, a run or a good walk being outdoors is truly my happy place.'
