Marina founded ClearLine Communications in 1995, forming it into a highly regarded media relations and marketing business. In our first years the portfolio included multinationals such as Esso Petroleum and other clients ranging from conservation organisations to major health authorities.
Marina has had extensive senior client management experience in medium to large sized companies, advising on overall marketing strategies to achieve corporate goals, and providing a hands on approach to event management, relationships with the media and creative and practical marketing solutions. Marina’s offshore yacht racing and yachting journalist experience eventually led ClearLine to build an emphasis on marketing in the marine industry. She is a member of the Yachting Journalists’ Association and is a qualified RYA Yachtmaster. Marina is currently studying for the Post Graduate Diploma of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.
