Ecovery Innovations Ltd

Clive’s early career was grounded in the hospitality industry with Bass Plc, before he set up his own marketing agency USP. Creating many memorable campaigns for blue chip clients resulted in USP being acquired by a publicly quoted advertising group, Osprey Communications Plc.

It was here his corporate skills evolved he was promoted to the Plc board and eventually became their CEO leading a number of successful acquisitions and mergers.

At heart he is an entrepreneur and thrives on new challenges which led to him setting up Immitto Ltd, helping clients become more business savvy developing their core usp’s. An assignment with Ecovery Innovations enabled me to witness first hand the capability of their KERS product to deliver sizeable energy reductions and CO2e savings. A shared vision for sustainability with the founder and system designer Eric Phillips convinced him to take a stake in the business and join their board.
