The ‘Pinners’ Marsden Epic Cycle’ was the idea of Bart Michels, CEO of WPP-owned global brand development and marketing insight consultancy Added Value, who has recruited a team of six equally sports-mad marketers and directors to join him.  This includes CEO of direct response and relationship marketing agency WDMP, Gavin Wheeler, along with David’s two brothers Tom , Director at The Sports Consultancy and Phil, Managing Director at a packaging firm.  Michels and Wheeler both worked with David at cable company NTL (now Virgin Media).
