Damon has over 25 years experience of brand development, marketing and communications across a range of sectors as well as experience of economic regeneration and events.
He was part of the management team that launched Scottish Enterprise's flagship economic regeneration project, Loch Lomond Shores, now one of Scotland's most visited destinations and was also responsible for the successful relaunches of both the Everyman Liverpool and Tron Theatre in Glasgow.
Alongside other interests he has run his own marketing, web and brand development businesses for the past 10 years working with a wide range of clients from a university and college to retailers, a local authority, dental practices and UK-wide golf driving ranges and adventure golf.
Having previously been introduced to the chamber network during his time at Renfrewshire Chamber Damon is delighted to be taking Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce into its next phase of development as CEO. He has a passion for supporting new and existing businesses to help them thrive through their association with the chamber and via the access to the range of benefits the chamber can offer.
Damon's interests include Hillwalking, Cycling and generally keeping fit and he enjoy listening to music, reading and cooking (sometimes all at the same time :-). He also enjoys stand-up comedy (watching - not performing!) and set up one of Liverpool's most successful comedy clubs, Rawhide.
Damon lives with his wife (Alison), daughter (Georgia) and miniature Schnauzer in Kilbarchan.
