Joanne Gray

Joanne Gray is Founder and Chief Progressivist at The Progress Lab.

Joanne has a career spanning 18 years, working across a number of the UK’s well-known household brands. She started her career at the ‘sharp end’ of sales, selling the likes of Diamond White to convenience retailers – a great grounding for building commercial acumen, people skills and thinking on your feet!

That lead her down the marketing pathway where she journeyed up the marketing ladder; working across the entire marketing mix and building on the success of established brands like Anadin, McVitie’s and TOMY toys.


Joanne set up The Progress Lab on 1st January this year, a progressive thinking marketing consultancy aimed at helping ambitious people and businesses unleash their potential. She is known for being passionate about brands, products and people – for being straight-talking and getting things done… making PROGRESS!
