New venture for Dr Ross Moloney
Former CEO of Skills for Logistics, Dr Ross Moloney is taking his unique skills set into an innovative new venture. As Managing Director of a new full-service research, marketing and communications agency, called FireDog Research, Dr Moloney will be working across public, private and charitable sectors.
FireDog has been established to help organisations in these sectors explore new markets, develop new products and acquire new customers. Alongside market research, creative branding and digital media, this new venture will also help clients with bid writing and funding acquisition.
Dr Moloney will be leveraging the experience gained from being actively engaged with skills policy over the last ten years. He has worked for the government as an economic policy adviser. Likewise, he has also taught economics and politics at the Universities of Nottingham and Birmingham – where he completed his doctorate.
Alongside Dr Moloney in FireDog’s Management Team are Gwenn Winters and Rhys Davies. Winters, also formerly at Skills for Logistics where she was responsible for delivering large-scale research, is Research Director, while Rhys Davies takes on the role of Communications Director. Davies has almost 20 years’ experience of developing and executing integrated marketing and communications solutions for brands including Metro Goldwyn Mayer, Sony Pictures, Cube Capital, Unipart, Britvic International and most recently Skills for Logistics.
Dr Moloney said: “FireDog fills a niche by helping organisations better understand their audience and markets and where future growth might come from. Likewise, we will help businesses understand challenges they might face moving forward – including in relation to skills. Having identified the challenges and opportunities, we will enable our clients to really attack the future”.
