Mel Budd BA MBA
I’ve been in the building materials and construction industry for over 13 years and during that time have built up a valuable blend of hands-on experience at a senior level in the industry together with a proven track record in management consultancy. My background is mainly in marketing, sales, research and strategic planning both in an operational and consultancy capacity.
Prior to Leading Edge, I was Sales and Marketing Director at Marley – at the time one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of waterproofing and flooring materials. Before Marley I was Marketing Director at Hall & Co, a £200m builders’ merchant group. In a consultancy capacity I have worked for Consulting Plus, research specialists in the flooring sector, and in the Strategic and Marketing division of Price Waterhouse Coopers Management Consultants. I have a degree in Economics and Statistics and an MBA from Imperial College.
As a Management Consultant, my clients have ranged from small start up companies to large multi-national businesses. Sectors worked in include the following: manufacturing, construction, distribution, retail and public utilities. My areas of expertise include market research & analysis, strategy development, market planning, product marketing, sales & business development and marketing communications.
Out of office hours you’ll either find me on a golf course or a tennis court – or acting as taxi driver for my teenage children.
