- Job title: Entrepreneur
Leeds Alumnus (Economics) and entrepreneur Paul Cartmell now invests and advises a number of businesses after selling Billington Cartmell, the company he founded in 1991 with Ian Billington. Together, the pair built the business to become one of the largest independent marketing groups in the UK employing almost 200 people providing advertising, direct and digital marketing services to a host of major clients, including GlaxoSmithKline, Unilever, Nestle, Morrisons, Panasonic and Carlsberg. The business was acquired by Hutton Collins Partners in 2012.
Prior to launching Billington Cartmell, Paul worked as an international Marketing Development Director for global pharmaceutical company SmithKline Beecham, and previously held marketing roles with Cadbury and Britvic.
Paul recently became a non–executive director of Child’s Farm which produces an innovative range of natural toiletries suitable for all children and especially those with sensitive or eczema prone skin, as well as an eponymous children’s cartoon TV series on Cartoonito.
Paul will soon be launching a range of English wines from a vineyard in Hampshire.
