Philip Almond, Director of Marketing & Audiences – BBC

Philip joined the BBC 2 years ago as Marketing and audiences Director from Diageo the global drinks producer, where he worked for 17 years most recently as Global Brand Director for R&A Bailey. He was a member of Diageo’s Global Marketing Leadership team, and was previously Marketing Director of Diageo GB.

He is a lifelong fan of the BBC and all it stands for, and is very proud to be working in the BBC at such an exciting and important time, as traditional broadcasting ways of doing things flex in response to all things digital.

Philip lives in Berkhamsted with his wife Kate and their 4 children. He is into theatre and all types of music – and is a big fan of Saracens Rugby.
