Whether it’s an in-bar promotion in Africa or in-store coupons in Germany, Philip has done it all. As a promotional risk ‘lifer’, there’s not much he hasn’t seen in the promotional world.

Aligned with his unrivalled knowledge and contacts within the promotional insurance market, he is uniquely placed to help clients find the best solutions.


On his days off, you’ll either find Philip walking along the beach with family, friends and his fun-loving dog or with his head in a spreadsheet.


Andrew Ryan

Phone: +44 (0)7736 813243

Email: andrew@halopromorisk.com

Andrew is an international promotional marketing leader. He’s built a successful career on delivering ground breaking promotional campaigns that have shifted the dial for clients such as Lucozade, McDonalds, Walkers, Carlsberg and GM  to name but a few. At the heart of all this activity is always a big idea – and ideas that give tangible results by ensuring customers change their behaviour. During his career he’s been fortunate to ply his trade in US, EMEA, LatAm and more recently back home in UK.

Despite being a committed Evertonian Andrew’s glass always remains half full and you’ll find his experience of buying promotional risk a positive asset and support on your next promotional campaign.
