Graeme Kerr: Head of Marketing
Areas of expertise: Overseeing all the marketing activity
I joined Macs Adventure in January 2018 as Head of Marketing overseeing all marketing activity for the business in the UK and abroad, assisting our offices in Germany and the US. I work closely with the other heads of department and Neil our CAO helping the business to grow and continue to offer our customers the best products in the market.
I started travelling from a very young age as my dad was involved in the international hotel industry. We started in Saudi Arabia when I was 4 months old, living there for 4 years before moving to Dubai for 2 and a half years. A very different place now compared to the late 80’s when we were there; our house looked out onto the desert on the edge of the city and when I visited again a few years ago that house is now pretty much in the city centre! We moved from Dubai to Kenya where we lived for 3 years which was a great experience as my mum and I often joined my dad on monthly trips and safaris, visiting various hotels across Kenya. During that time we travelled extensively in Africa, the Middle East and Asia so I can claim to have visited over 30 countries however how many I remember is questionable! We returned to Glasgow when I was 10 where I stayed to go to university and continued into my career.
I decided to take 3 months out after university, traveling around the US and Canada which was an amazing experience visiting over 25 States and ticking off a number of the bucket list items from that region such as a helicopter trip over the Grand Canyon, white water rafting in Colorado, going to a Rodeo in Texas, hot air ballooning in Albuquerque, Graceland in Memphis, playing American Football in the Dallas Cowboys stadium, visiting Niagara Falls, and just New Orleans as a whole.
I’m now married with a beautiful daughter Georgia. When I’m not entertaining her I enjoy spending time with friends and stay active playing football twice a week and golf whenever the weather in Scotland permits it!
