Neil has over 20 years’ experience in the security industry. With an increasing interest and market growth, he changed his focus to privacy 3 years ago. He has extensive knowledge in liaising with organisations about privacy, be it GDPR, UK Data Protection Act 2018, CCPA, or LGPD.
Neil was most recently the European Sales Manager for TrustArc, one of the Global leaders in Privacy related technologies and services. His role was to expand the footprint of TrustArc and the brand across Europe. During this time Neil took a real interest in Consent and Cookie Consent as this was and still remains a visible non-compliance for many companies. With the guidelines from the UK ICO, French CNIL and most recently the Irish DPC and the ECJ, Cookie Consent has become a key requirement and hot topic for organisations and usually just the first stage in a Consent Management requirement.
It was through a partnership agreement between two leaders in the market, TrustArc and MyLife Digital, that Neil became aware of the Consentric consent and preference management solution provided by MyLife Digital. Neil was keen to join us, so he could help organisations on their second stage of the journey embedding a granular and scalable consent management solution.
“I am very excited about the opportunity in working for MyLife Digital”, comments Neil, “A UK company really focused on helping organisations empower their users with consent preferences. Giving both the organisation and users an ability to understand and control user data. Consent is all about trust and transparency, and that is really what MyLife Digital provides to both a user and an organisation.”
“We are delighted to appoint Neil as a Global Account Director,” comments Katie Bates, MyLife Digital, Director of Sales, Marketing and Partnerships. “Neil brings a wealth of experience to the team and will work with our customers and partners to realise the enormous growth potential we see in the consent market.”
