Mike Maynard - managing director of NapierI’m the managing director of Napier Partnership Limited – a B2B PR and Marketing agency based in the UK. I took over the company in 2001 with Suzy Kenyon, and the company has been successfully helping B2B technology clients sell more products and services in Europe.

I started my career as an electronics design engineer, developing mixing desks for recording studios at DDA, after several spells at GEC-Marconi during my degree. I moved into field applications support at Hawke Components, and then was recruited by IDT Inc. where I switched from European Applications Manager to European Marketing Manager.

My educational achievements include a Masters Degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from the University of Surrey and an MBA from Kingston University.
