John Keane - Ardmore Advertising
Leaders in Business - As the head of one of Northern Ireland's largest advertising agencies, John Keane knows a thing or two about the local media industry.
...
John Keane, managing director of Holywood-based Ardmore Advertising, has been involved in the industry throughout his life and can put his stamp on many ground breaking advertising campaigns. But it could have been very different. John originally started a law degree at the University of Ulster in Coleraine but soon realised his calling was of a more creative nature. A switch to a communications course swiftly followed and landed a job with the Belfast Telegraph selling advertising, initially in Belfast before moving to the company's London office at the spiritual heart of the newspaper industry on Fleet Street. "I learnt at the coal face with the Tele," John said in an interview with Ulster Business. "I had a wonderful time and was given a lot of seniority while really young. The call of home soon followed and John returned to Northern Ireland as a partner and shareholder in Ardmore where he looked after the advertising side of the business. Eventually, John bought over his remaining stake in Ardmore, the company he now runs and which, he says, is consistently one of the top three advertising agencies in Northern Ireland. Advertising can generally be looked upon as a leading indicator of economic health and tends to bear the brunt of any wider economic slowdown so it's no wonder the sector hasn't had the easiest time over the last couple of years. John says Ardmore has performed well given the environment although that hasn't been achieved without considerable collective effort. "Income is down by 8% but we've actually racked up 32% more hours," he said in reference to the company's performance over in 2009. "We've done a lot more work but that is to support our clients' needs. But if you don't do that in the tough times you will very quickly be told to forget it. While the downturn has been tough, John remains confident for the future. "We plan to make Ardmore one of the most capable marketing services on this island," he said.

In terms of the wider economy, John feels we need to shake off our risk averse nature.
