Giles Booth, ECOE’s new marketing director

We love it when people step up to join the ECOE team, and also love introducing you to the new faces to you so that you don’t wonder who they are when you meet them. Our latest new recruit is Giles Booth, our new marketing director.

What is your role at ECOE?

I’m delighted to have joined the ECOE team in April 2023 to support Sales and Marketing.

What is your background?

I have been in consulting for over 25 years, advising national and international infrastructure clients on solutions to their most important problems. During this time I have led on various aspects of the sales cycle. Now, I find myself providing direction for the places division of Arcadis as UK and Ireland Pursuits Director. I enjoy the pace of pursuits and the opportunity to represent the brand in various marketing activities.

What motivated you to join ECOE?

Put simply, the chance to give back to the community on a topic I am passionate about. Our world is evolving and the norms we know are being rewritten. That includes the way we source and use energy. Further, supporting ECOE provides me with the opportunity to influence the most pressing agenda of our time – reducing carbon emissions – and to do it in the community in which I live. The whole premise of ECOE is about reducing Exeter’s carbon emissions associated with energy use.

What should members and supporters talk to you about if they bump into you?

People Networks – the connections we make are enduring and can help us personally and professionally.

Also, Brand Awareness – where we can expose ECOE to the right audience.

We could also cover surfing or heavy metal music if they’re your thing!
