Arlo Brady

Spear’s Review

Matthew Freud hired Arlo Brady as a special adviser to counsel family businesses across the globe, including the Mars family. An impressed Freud promoted him to CEO in 2017.

Brady loves the role’s variability – the interplay between corporate comms, individual ideas and social media. 

‘The question that people start with is, “How can we improve our reputation?”,’ he says. ‘Quite often our response to that is, “Be better”.’ He often helps with creating ‘crazy, experiential content’ to make branding more engaging, as he finds that ‘a lot of corporate communications are boring’.

What makes freuds successful as a brand? ‘We’ve got the best people,’ Brady replies.
