Hi I'm Colin - thebaldguy and I have more than 25 years experience as a marketer and direct marketer working across a range of markets and media channels.

I am one of the co-Directors of award winning Delicatessen The Gourmet Grocer Balmain a business started by my partner and I at the end of 2007. We are now in our 6th year of trading and already recognised as an excellent cheese shop and established part of the Balmain community. In Feb 2011 we launched gourmetgroceronline a fantastic online experience for the gourmet food shopper.

In my previous assignment as Managing Director of Doubleday Australia, I built and led a team that transformed the culture and profitability of one of Bertelsmann's most troubled book and music Clubs.

I am currently working as Managing Director of Guthy-Renker Australia one of Australia's biggest Direct Response Marketing Companies.
