    Ollie Lloyd - CEO, Great British Chefs

    Ollie Lloyd - CEO, Great British Chefs


    Ollie started out as a marketing trainee at Unilever and upset many a Eurosceptic by changing the name of Jif to Cif in the UK. He fled to the USA and spent four years building Unilever's brands in partnership with retailers like Walmart, Costco and Dollar General. A highlight was launching Axe/Lynx in North America and pitching the brand idea to a buyer in the conservative South where the brand’s sense of humour didn't translate. He then moved to India to lead a pan-Asian brand development project for Lux, Unilever's largest brand in Asia. A bounce to What If Innovation was short but sweet and in 2005 he set up his own marketing consultancy. A challenge from a pair of entrepreneurs in 2009 led to the creation of Great British Chefs, a digital brand that gets over 2 million page impressions a month and has almost 1 million social media followers.
