CEO Sam Garrity has successfully led RocketMill for over 10 years. This digital marketing agency began as a self-funded start-up, serving micro businesses but has grown to become one of the UK’s top 20 UK digital marketing agencies.
However, Sam’s media career began in the editorial team at The Express newspaper before migrating into the advertising team. He then moved between The Express and The Daily Mail – helping launch a national newspaper and a national magazine in the process.

Here he headed up a team who helped businesses leverage the brand building power of Outdoor; whilst ushering in the era of digital outdoor.
However, Sam always had the desire to ‘go it alone’ and, before long his dream became reality when presented with the idea of launching RocketMill. Sam seized the opportunity with both hands! His role as CEO has involved crafting and implementing the vision for the agency. As well as leading the development of both their short and long term strategy, ensuring promises are delivered to both to staff and clients.
