Martin Covill, eight years and still counting...
Posted by emma.critchley | 22 April
Martin Covill, Director of Business, is one of the longest reigning members of staff at TLC Marketing and today marks his 8th year at the agency. In his time Martin has seen it all. From our early beginnings at a small Baker Street office, to where we are now with three floors and offices spanning all over the world. So what have been the best bits for Martin at TLC?
What’s your favourite thing about working for TLC Marketing?
After 8 years, I can’t say just one thing…
I live in a quite rural part of Kent where horses roam in a field opposite my house, so coming to Marylebone every day and working in such an energetic office is great.
I enjoy the crowd I work with – the people that make TLC. We work hard, we get stressed, but we are a collective group. Like a family with the occasional angry uncle and favourite aunt. It’s a real home from home, which is quite unique, but very appealing. There are not many places where you can get away with wearing an orange gilet, like I try to do!
The type of agency we are puts us in the fortunate position of being able to work with brilliant and diverse brands. Whether its utilities, insurance, financial services, telecoms, automotive, FMCG, retail, electronics, or something else, we speak to the best brands every day of the week. No day is the same here at TLC, and that’s what makes it such a great place to work. It’s why I’m still here.
What is the best thing about your role?
Even after 8 years, every day is a new challenge. Every day I am thinking about new ways to help clients achieve their objective. Every day is different, a chase to achieving a goal. Always thinking, never sitting still. But after 8 successful years, I also enjoy giving the benefit of my experience and wisdom in some kind of Obi Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness not Ewan McGregor!) style to my colleagues.
Martin Covill, the office wouldn't be the same without you.
We could do without that orange gilet though...
TLC Marketing officially one of the best places to work.
