Euan started his career in regional sales at Walkers Snack Foods, before moving to Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE). Whilst at CCE he looked after customers ranging from Sodexo in foodservice, through the education, health and leisure sectors, to grocery with Tesco and Sainsbury’s. Following a project to create a revenue management model, Euan then gained consumer marketing experience with the Coca-Cola Company, working across the Coke, diet Coke and Schweppes portfolios.

In 2010 Euan joined us here at Sellex and has since worked on a vast array of projects encompassing pretty much every aspect of the commercial agenda. Euan’s passion lies in helping clients get to the root of their challenges and enabling them to build practical, executable solutions.

Away from Sellex, Euan can be found doing a poor impression of an amateur cyclist and being told what to do by his family!
