Davies, who’s a contributor to Wired UK and Campaign as well as the author of the “As Disappointed As You Are” blog on the side, was once the global consumer planning director at Nike and had stints at W+K’s Portland and London offices, where he worked for clients including the aforementioned mega-brand as well as Microsoft and Honda.
