Owen took over the family business in 2012, although he has been steeped in agency life from a very early age.
As Managing Director, Owen provides high-level strategic guidance and consultancy both internally and with clients, adding value to the agency’s output and ensuring that clients have a trusted partner to whom they can turn at all times. His specialist skills include corporate strategy and Public Affairs, where he has extensive experience of lobbying officials and connecting with decision-makers at all levels.
He has a relentless focus on new business development, overseeing the agency’s marketing programme and applying new technologies to stimulate further growth. Owen is a Board member of the Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA) and holds an MBS (Honours) graduate of the Smurfit School of Business, specialising in Strategic Management & Planning.
He is an avowed technophile, inbound marketing buff and keen farmer, although he doesn’t have as much time for the latter as he used to. This may or may not be Owen’s final season playing rugby with Blackrock College RFC.
