Steven Ray, Client Director – Mindshare

Steven is a Client Director at Mindshare, where he leads communications planning across a range of accounts, from Rolex to Three to Nike. With a background in digital, Steve made the move to influence the role of digital in the planning process, whilst recognising the increased presence of digital throughout the communications landscape. He identified a greater passion for planning beyond his digital specialism thanks to the Marketing Academy, especially through coaching. He remains involved with the Marketing Academy, currently mentoring one of the apprentices on Merlin’s Apprentice.

Previously he was Head of Digital at Starcom Mediavest London, and Client Services Director at digital agency i-level, having joined as a graduate way back in 2003.

Prior to following his chosen career path in marketing and advertising, Steven graduated from the University of Sussex with a degree in Law. Steven lives in Tunbridge Wells with his wife, son and a house full of technology and Lego.
