Dave Croydon

Helping established business owners/managers to grow and add value to their business

For 15 years David worked in marketing departments of various corporations and international companies, in support of direct sales forces.  For the next 5 years, he moved to the agency side of the fence and worked in sales promotion/direct marketing/ advertising; then set up his own ‘through-the-line’ consultancy in Oxford, which he ran for 13 years, before selling out to an American multi-national. As an agency head, he has in-depth experience of most business sectors, both FMCG and B2B.

His marketing experience is overlaid with general management experience, having founded and grown a small consultancy business from scratch to a £6million turnover with 40 employees.

Having successfully sold the business in 1999, he now works as an independent operator in the small/medium size business sector, helping the MD/Owners of a wide variety of businesses in very different market sectors to grow and improve their businesses’ performance and profitability.

The principles of business management remain the same, no matter what the product or market sector (his business, incidentally, was called Marketing Principles). Putting those core principles to work is what Hilltop Consultancy is all about.

A strong team player (a zillion years ago, he played rugby football for Saracens for a decade or more, and believes he still holds their all-time points-scoring record), his strong belief is that good teamwork in the workplace is as important as on the playing field.
