Julian first began his career in the exciting, fast-paced world of advertising with Publicis Worldwide and this is where his fascination with brands began. He then moved across to the client side and two and a half years later is proud to be the brand manager for Liberty – one of South Africa’s longest standing and successful brands. Julian has always been passionate about sports and branding and the opportunity to combine these two came about in the form of Liberty’s sponsorship of Peter van Kets. Being involved in his solo rowing expedition across the Atlantic has been a life-changing experience. Julian has travelled extensively and he has lived in Spain, Australia, South Korea and the United States. Outside of work he enjoys spending time on the golf course or with a reel and rod in hand, while in the company of his friends and family.
