Chief Strategy Officer Email Neil Hourston, The Corner


Started in research. Then spent 11 years at TBWA, learning the planning trade, practising Disruption, and working my way up to CSO. Joined Grey London in 2008, as CSO, a central part of a management team that turned a dying agency round. In time, became CSO EMEA. Eventually outgrew networks, the bureaucracy, and the speed at which they change. Joined Neil Simpson and Tom Ewart in 2012, in a new start up called The Corner London. Realised this is what it’s all about.
