Marketing Gun for Hire

I’m Carl Mesner Lyons. Think of me as your CMO in the cloud.

I’ve managed major brands for listed companies. And been the lead marketer in four high-growth, founder-led tech startups.

Now I work with multiple clients to help them grow and change.

Get plug-in senior marketing – without the headcount.

Carl plays a key role supporting the awesome Unruly marketing team. It’s great to be able to call on his experience and abilities and we love having him as part of the business.

Sarah Wood

CEO, Unruly

Carl is a big thinker and understands how to drive emotion through brand and how to stand out. We’ve worked with Carl for almost two years and he has become our ‘go-to guy’ for everything brand related. Carl now sits on our Board and advises the management team on brand development and driving awareness.
