Alex Watts steps up to MB Partners’ Board of Directors

MB Partners are delighted to announce that long-standing employee Alex Watts will join the MB Partners Board of Directors. Alex, who is Operations Director at MB Partners, will join Chairman Theo Paphitis alongside CEO Mark Blundell, Managing Director Ian Childs and fellow Board member Robin Fenwick.

Alex first joined MB Partners as a young intern in 2014 whilst still studying Sport and Social Science at the University of Bath. Mark and the team were so impressed with his knowledge, enthusiasm and work ethic that they were keen to entice him back.


All of his hard work at University paid off and Alex graduated from the University of Bath with a first-class honours degree and won the National British Olympic Association award for undergraduate academic excellence.


Once he’d successfully completed his course and earned his degree, he accepted the full time position of Business Development and Sponsorship in June 2016 and since then has gone from strength to strength.


Consistent hard work and commitment saw Alex be promoted to Operations Director in January 2020 and he has undoubtedly been a key part of the success and growth of MB Partners over recent years.


Alex has played a key role in many of the company’s milestones during his tenure and has been instrumental across all aspects of the business since his arrival. Helping the agency activate and deliver for several global brands, Alex has played a substantial role in growing MB Partners’ portfolio of clients and partners, as well as the launch of several new departments within the agency.


Mark Blundell, CEO of MB Partners, commented: “Since Alex joined MB Partners seven years ago, there is no doubt he has been one of our main assets and has played a key role in the growth of MB Partners. Alex has never seen himself as too big or too small for any task he has been assigned to and has given 100% at every opportunity to deliver outstanding results and it’s the collective decision by the board to reward Alex for his dedication and commitment to the business.


“Alex has helped create a culture of excellence within MB Partners and has always gone over and above to ensure those levels are maintained. I know I speak on behalf of the board in saying how delighted and enthused we are to welcome Alex to the Board of Directors.”
