Richard Kent – Managing Consultant
I have over 25 years experience on both agency and client side. Most notably, working closely with Angus Thirlwell, I helped to launch Hotel Chocolat as a multi channel business in the UK and the US overseeing rapid growth in sales and profitability.
Shortly after, I moved to Chicago and worked as VP of Marketing for Vosges Haut-Chocolat a luxury chocolate retailer growing their online business by 25%.
Returning to the UK, I worked as Head of Marketing of OKA Direct, a high end furniture retailer based in London but with stores throughout the UK. I oversaw the launch of their new website which grew online sales by over 20% in the 12 months following the launch.
I launched i90 Media Consulting as a tribute to Interstate 90, the longest interstate highway in the United States which ran less than a mile from my house in Chicago and where I spent many hours, sitting in traffic and pondering just what to do on my return to the UK! After staring out of the window in one particularly heavy jam, I decided to name my company after the road I was stuck on, but also by now, quite fond of!
Since the launch of i90 Media, I have worked with a team of talented professionals with experience in a wide range of disciplines including performance marketing channels – PPC, Paid Social, Affiliate Marketing and Programmatic as well as SEO and Email marketing. This flexible arrangement keeps i90 light on its feet and able to react quickly and effectively to a new brief.
