Iain Gibbons

Marketing Director

Q. How did it feel winning an award recently?

Awesome – I really wanted it, for the team, who had put so much into the whole of 2022.

Q. How did you end up with a career in marketing and how did you find yourself in the mortgage industry?

By mistake, like so many others! I was going to be a rockstar, that didn’t work out, so I fell into a job in finance, hated that so jumped at an internal move to marketing and the rest is history!

Q. Where do you live?

In a small town called Wideopen, 5 miles north of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Q. Do you have any pets?

If you have ever joined a teams call with me, you will know I have a very vocal dog called Louis!

Q. Do you have a favourite saying?

Be yourself, everyone else is taken!

Q. What was the first (or last) concert/gig you went to?

First was Metallica in 1984 at the Newcastle Mayfair when they supported a local band called Venom. Last was recently when I went to see a great new band called Those Damn Crows.

Q. What advice would you give to other marketers in the mortgage market?

Look outside – take inspiration from other industries, other brands and think about how to bring that to life in your day job!

Q. What is your favourite city you have ever been to?

My hometown Newcastle upon Tyne of course, and also San Francisco.

Q. If money was no object, where in the world would you like to visit?

I’d like to visit the Metallica Recording Studios when they recorded the Black Album!

Q. What is your favourite film?

Any of the original Star Wars movies
