John W Morgan

Business Career
John started in advertising in 1964 as an office boy and then trained as a commercial artist.Having noticed that there weren't too many old commercial artists around, he decided to move on to the account management side of advertising where he has been ever since.
In a perfect example of being in the right place at the right time, he became Managing Director of his first advertising agency at the age of 23. even years later he joined Woolward Royds - then Scotland's largest advertising agency - as Managing Director of their Glasgow agency. n 1980 he started his own Agency, Morgan Associates, which was later to become The Morgan Partnership.
That business failed in 2001 when it lost its biggest account, Hilton, at which point John remortgaged and started again. The new agency, merle (named after the old Scots word for Blackbird) now handles brand and communications for a diverse range of clients including Highland Spring, Robert Wiseman Dairies, Arran Aromatics, RBS, Tyreplus (part of the Kwik-Fit Group), The Whisky Shop and Tunnock's.
merle also created the brand strategy which helped build Dobbies to the UK's foremost Garden Centre chain only for that business to change its agency at the start of this year, proving, once again, that nothing in life is guaranteed.
John served on the Board of Scottish Enterprise, ForthValleyfor five years and is a Founder member and ex Vice Chairman of theEntrepreneurial Exchange.
...
John is married to Morag and has two grown up daughters - Megan and Erika, one granddaughter, Katie and one grandson, Ally.
John and Morag have an online gift shop specialising in hand-made, luxury pewter chess sets based on the Battle of Bannockburn and the life and works of Robert Burns.
...
John is a regular speaker on the After Dinner and Burns circuits and is Chairman of the Old Manor Burns Club in Bridgeof Allan. He also chairs his own company's annual celebration in Glasgow's Trades Hall, better known as "Fat Bob and Soapy Soutar's Braw Burns Supper". And it is!!

...
John Morgan became Managing Director of his first advertising agency at the age of 23 and formed his own company, Morgan Associates, in 1980.Morgans merged with Struthers Advertising & Marketing in 1990 and later became The Morgan Partnership.
When the Agency's largest account, Hilton, left the Agency in November 2001, John and his team found it impossible to replace the huge income and the Agency was put into voluntary liquidation that December.After 21 years of riding an industry roller-coaster and finally losing almost everything at the age of 55, he did the only sensible thing: he remortgaged and started again.
John's new company, merle limited, was formed in the same month as the demise of Morgans and now handles such clients as Highland Spring, Linn Products, Robert Wiseman Dairies, Sky Television, Scottish Milk, Careers Scotland (Scottish Enterprise), and the TyrePlus group - the second chain in the Kwik-Fit company.
John is a founder and Board member of the Entrepreneurial Exchange, a past Director of Scottish Enterprise Forth Valley and he says he's happy to be back on the roller coaster.
