I began my career with Tesco PLC in their Commercial Buying and Marketing Division, a high-pressure, dynamic environment where the expectation was to deliver outstanding results in a measurable and robust way – fast!
After many years with Tesco rising from graduate trainee through buying and marketing roles to my final role of Strategic Marketing Controller for the Tesco UK food business, the time was right to move on. I left Tesco to join the BBC, where I managed a large team as UK Head of Marketing for Children’s Publishing.
After a career break to spend time with my young children, I joined a management and procurement consultancy, Ivo Business Solutions. During my first 12 months at Ivo I doubled their turnover for the year through my work with a leading music label.
I now have my own consultancy practice, www.hutchinsonconsulting.uk and I work very closely with Jonathan and Patrick to bring commercial insight and marketing knowledge to client engagements.
