CEO, PA Group
Clive Marshall is responsible for consolidating the PA Group’s position as a leading supplier of multimedia content and services around the world. Under his leadership, the PA Group has diversified to focus on areas including news, data, branding, camera systems, content strategy, video solutions, communications and more.
As CEO of the Press Association’s parent group, Clive is committed to integrity and transparency in business and – most importantly – high quality journalism.
“So much has changed in media over the last 150 years, but we have evolved and will continue to do so while maintaining our core values of accuracy, speed and impartiality,” says Clive. “In the current climate of fake news stories and accusations of bias, PA Group’s reputation is built on the trust our customers have in our services.”
He says his proudest achievement is leading the company’s investment into MeteoGroup, Europe’s largest private sector weather business. “We helped it grow its revenue and double in size, employing hundreds of people in 12 countries.”
PA has since sold MeteoGroup, a move which provided the capital to further diversify the business.
Looking back, Clive says he would have warned his younger self about the journey to come: “Hang on tight, it’s going to be one hell of a ride!’”
