Neil Burton

Candidate Name: Neil Burton

Brief description:
I live next to Trust land and am passionate about preserving the unique areas we have.

Summary description :
I have recently moved back from Melbourne, Australia to be closer to ageing family. I have lived within Boxmoor all my life with spells of living abroad. My professional background is in Marketing/Digital Marketing and general management having run my own company as well as working for large multinationals. I am very sporty and have recently represented Australia at racket sports and love jogging around trust land. I am passionate about protecting the environment and the special places owned by the Trust. I am married with 2 grown up children.

Manifesto if elected:

My biggest inputs could be creativity for events, increased membership of the Trust and looking at where there could be potential gains to safeguard the Trust for years to come. I work best when I am part of a team and I am confident that my skills will complement the great work that is already being carried out. I have run my own businesses from quite an early age which has taught me a lot about many aspects of business. I started the Castles rentals business in Berkhamsted many years ago before starting up an online clothing company. I have worked in both small and large companies which has given me a good all round knowledge of how different departments and people interact. I was the UK Marketing manager for Parker Hannifin when the HQ was based in Hemel and am currently the Marketing manager for Australia for Decathlon, a global sporting goods company. I will finish that role this month and I am excited to start a new position as Head of Marketing for a St Albans based online clothing company called UKKolours. My skills within business would certainly be transferrable to the Trust and I would like to think that specifically my digital marketing knowledge could be put to good use. Ultimately, I would like to be involved in protecting the Trust land and continuing to provide an enjoyable environment for all of the residents who are lucky enough to live here in Boxmoor and the surrounding areas.
