Marco Keir

Marco Keir is Director of Marketing and Communications at Canterbury Christ Church University. After studying at the University of Bristol, he began working life at Robert Maxwell’s new Cable Television network, then decided to pursue a career in advertising, spending ten years with Saatchi & Saatchi. In 2000, Marco was promoted to Board Director at the London agency and given responsibility for Procter and Gamble’s Ariel advertising across Europe and the notorious Sunny Delight soft drink!

In 2004, he joined Canterbury City Council as Head of Communications; in 2008, he moved to Christ Church as Director of Marketing and Communications and a member of the University’s Senior Management Team. An enthusiastic amateur runner – as his many mediocre 5k and 10k running times on Google attest – he is also a keen kayaker. If ever you visit Whitstable on a sunny weekend and look out to sea, you may catch sight of him in a bright yellow kayak.

Marco sits on the Finance & General Purposes Committee.
