New Year honours awarded to our chairman Geoff Hodgson
Blumilk are delighted and proud to announce that Geoff, our chairman here at Blumilk, has been awarded an OBE in the New Year honours list 2023, for his services to the UK Ports Sector and to the North East regional economy.
Geoff, who is also chair of Blyth Harbour Commission, started his career working for multinational companies including Proctor and Gamble and Coca Cola, in sales and marketing roles.
In the 1990’s Geoff returned to our region to continue his work in the drinks sector, ultimately making his way to the top to become chief executive for the Federation Brewery.
In more recent times, Geoff has established strong and loyal working relationships with many companies in the North East, working as an investor, advisor and sitting in a number of non executive board positions to provide trusted and respected advice, direction and support.
Geoff joined Blumilk over 14 years ago in 2009, when we were based at the Riverside studios on the Newcastle Business Park. From the very beginning, Geoff’s involvement with us, has helped to steer and support our continued success and ensure stability in an ever changing economic climate.
Blumilk is proud to be one of the few, long standing agencies in the North East that have not only survived in difficult and uncertain times, but have thrived and grown to be one of the most trusted full service agencies in the North East, with a long standing loyal and trusted regional and national client base.
Throughout his time with us, Geoff has opened the door to many opportunities to work with some prestigious clients in the leisure, drinks, digital and recruitment sectors to name but a few. He is a valued member of our team and we look forward to what lies ahead for us all here at Blumilk with Geoff’s continued support in his role as chairman. Congratulations from us all!
