Beau LoughheadFounder, Director

A part time job in call centre while at university led Beau into the world of direct marketing. Telephoning businesses to build the database for MOS Data (later ASIS, later still acquired by ACXIOM), Beau soon moved to managing the call centre team and later to selling the business data the team had built. He and Martin worked together at ACXIOM before Beau took a position with ACXIOM UK. When he returned to Sydney it was to launch The Prospect Shop with Martin from a dusty room above his parent’s garage in Chatswood. In addition to Major Account Management, Beau is responsible for Marketing and Business Development.

Beau lives on the North Shore, with his wife Fiona and their daughters Olive and Camilla.
