Dr. Breno Nunes

Experienced CMO – using insight and data to ensure the customer is at the heart of everything they do. Marketing, Sales, and Strategy development and execution.
His background includes a combination of consultancy and interim/permanent roles, the common ground being that I’m usually helping businesses by:
► Defining and executing their marketing strategy to deliver repeatable, sustainable success.
► Connecting them with the right customers at the right time to drive growth.
► Identifying opportunities to improve their operations, increasing efficiency and profitability.
► Identifying and responding to evolving buying patterns, cascading critical behaviours company-wide.
Whilst Marketing is at the heart of what Martin does, he has a much broader skill-set as he’s been fortunate to work in both SMEs and large corporate environments. This means although he’s able to take a “big picture” view of a business, he’s still good with the minutiae as well.
