Mark Chippendale

Mark joined Active International in 2012 as UK Managing Director. 

Mark is a news and tech addict. His wife knows it. His team at work knows. They accept him for what his is and tolerate the behaviour his obsession encourages – a need for constant change and discomfort at living in the now. When things get bad, they buy him alcohol. Mark is determined not to exchange this liquid temptation for his current one.

At weekends, he sings in a rock band, which he has been a member of for 30 years. He has managed to keep his tech a secret from them. In fact, they would tell you Mark hasn’t the first clue about setting up a sound desk, back line, wireless IEM’s and microphones. He does.

Mark is also obsessed with cricket, having been a Trustee of Ealing C.C. for 4 years and rugby union – his band plays after Harlequins games at The Stoop.

If you ever want to be bored to death about tech and its effect on the future of marketing, advertising and commerce. Mark is your man. He promises he won’t tell anyone; your secret will be safe.

Almost forgot….he is great at lunch!!



Mark was previously Commercial Director at CBS Outdoor, Media Director at News International and European VP, Sales at Yahoo. Prior to this he was at BSkyB for 14 years rising to the role of Director of Sales.
