Air Marketing Group (Air), the UK's leading supplier of outsourced sales services, are delighted to announce the appointment of Non-Executive Director (NED), Clodagh Murphy.

In a move that re-enforces Air’s relentless ambition to scale, the appointment of Clodagh as Non-Exec represents an important step in the future of Air Marketing and its sister company, Roots To Market.

As the previous Managing Director of Eclipse part of KCOM Group PLC, Clodagh impressively led the diversification and digital transformation of the business growing revenue from £20m to £38m over a 5 year period. And its that experience that Air is so excited to have around the board room table.

Clodagh now holds prestigious positions across a number of Exeter based organisations including ExIST (Exeter Initiative for Science and Technology), Exeter Chamber of Commerce, and has also launched her very own lockdown start-up, Larks Live.

Air are on an exciting growth journey and are working hard to scale to the next level. In its first 3 years, after launching in 2016, the group’s revenue grew to more than £2million with its team growing to more than 55 people.

Like many businesses, Air is now navigating its way through a very unusual 2020 but is one of a few services led businesses looking at going forward across the year, despite temporarily losing ground in this first half of the year.

Air is now delighted to be looking up and forward and couldn’t be more delighted to have Clodagh onboard, contributing to the company strategy, direction and mission.

Planning for the next stage of growth, Air are undergoing a brand re-fresh, having significantly outgrown their start-up look over the past 4 years. They’re also working on building a new custom-CRM, to further advance the abilities of their current custom-CRM improving the experience further for their client base.

Managing Director, Owen Richards, said: “We’re really excited to have Clodagh onboard. She’s a fantastic asset and influential within many successful businesses. Clodagh is fully brought into our vision and is already helping us to achieving this”.

Clodagh will also be joining the board of Air’s sister company, Roots to Market – a demand generation agency specialising in delivering marketing with a sales attitude.

“I’ve really enjoyed the time I have spent working with Owen and the Leadership Team this year. Air Marketing and Roots to Market are fantastic businesses with hugely committed teams. I’m delighted to join and be part of the team which will see us deliver exciting plans to accelerate growth.” - Clodagh Murphy
