Neil Cunningham, 34
Company: Cream UK
Cream is a boutique marketing agency specialising in full service media and marketing solutions for premium and luxury brands.
Founded in 2003, the business has gone from strength to strength with recent recognition from The Sunday Times Fast Track 100, City AM’s Leap 100 and Growth Builder driven by constant adaptation in a dynamic media market and a fixation on brilliant service for its enviable client roster of prestige brands. Current clients span the likes of Pandora, Kurt Geiger, Barbour, Victoria’s Secret, Boodles, The Watch Gallery and new acquisition Garrard. Other wins of 2016 include Charlotte Tilbury, This Works, Johnstons of Elgin and Land Securities.
Formerly head of online at media agency Vizeum – where he helped establish the digital department – Neil Cunningham joined Cream UK in 2012 tasked with revitalising the company’s digital and social arm and to take advantage of new opportunities across every media channel and platform. Four years later, Cunningham is managing director of Cream UK, which turned over £18m in 2015 after achieving sales growth of 70% over the last three years.
Having cemented its position as a provider of media services to a very niche but lucrative end of the market and now taking full advantage all the possibilities that the marketing landscape offers, Cream UK is projecting an impressive £23m in revenues for next year.
