Martin Covill a decade on

Martin Covill a decade on

Posted by faye.stammers | 24 April

The man, the myth, the legend himself Martin Covill celebrates his ten year anniversary at TLC Marketing this week. In those ten years, eleven new iPhones have hit the market, Martin's beloved Southampton got promoted to the Premier League and Kate and William have married and had three children. Martin has really stood the test of time and in the office, he's a key and well-respected member of the team, from helping bring a host of campaigns to life to being on hand to help and guide others when they need it.

He really is a TLC legend which is why we couldn’t wait to find out more about his time here.

1.    How has TLC Marketing changed over the past ten years?

We have adapted with the needs of consumers and clients, finding the best possible rewards and enhanced our delivery to creatively help clients market their added value campaigns. That’s what makes us so different. 

2.    What has been your highlight during your time here at TLC?

I’ve been involved in some great campaigns and had the chance to work with some lovely clients. I’m lucky to be supported by the nice people at TLC, people who work hard behind the scenes and keep you smiling both in and out of work. Some of us even go to spin classes together and they do manage to make me laugh even then, i've never known such talent as one of my colleagues who manages to spin and be on their phone at the same time.

3.    If you could give some advice to your younger self, what would you say?

You can never know everything but everything you need to know is around you. Listen to everyone. And always present an idea you believe in.

4.    How will you be celebrating?

I’m going to a launch of a brand new campaign, something I’ve been looking forward to for ages. I’m also hoping my colleagues will have clubbed together to buy me something suitably nice from rapha.cc or a nice pen from Selfridges. I will also drink a nice glass of Malbec at a pace it deserves.

Martin, you make the office a brighter place every day (and that's not just because of your orange gilet). Thank you for the memories and here's to the future.
