Sue Garland Worthington OBE


“It’s an enormous honour to be elected Master of the Marketors Company for 2017. My theme for the year is “Great Britain – Great Brand”, chosen to reflect not only my background in tourism marketing, but also the values which form the framework for this country’s export and inward investment efforts. Values such as continuity, integrity, the rule of law, open-mindedness, creativity, diversity and inclusion. The Brexit vote and its aftermath has brought these into sharp focus and led to a re-examination of assumptions many of us have been taking for granted. Marketors have a key role to play going forward in ensuring these values are not lost as the country adapts to this changing world.”

Externally we will cast light on the need for companies to make sure their efforts have a positive influence in the world. Our Master writes a lively and thought provoking fortnightly blog. Find out more about the activities of our Master to gain an insight how the wider Livery community operates and the rapidly changing world of marketing in the digital age.

We are delighted to congratulate our Liveryman Theresa May on becoming Prime Minister. According to the incumbent Lord Mayor, Theresa May is the first Prime Minister to have been appointed to office whilst being an active Liveryman. Read more

The Company

The Worshipful Company of Marketors is the 90th in the City of London Roll of Livery Companies, which now number 110, with a further Company awaiting the award of livery. The number is likely to grow as new Guilds are being formed wishing to eventually progress to livery status.

30 ‘Modern’ Livery Companies have been created since 1926, reflecting the evolution of new professions, all with a significant role to play in the conduct of modern-day business within the City of London. These newer companies are more able than the older Livery Companies to draw their membership only from within the profession they represent. The Marketors were formed as a Guild in 1975 and celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2015.

A Royal Charter for the Worshipful Company of Marketors was approved at a meeting of the Privy Council held in Windsor on 12 April 2010.There is a close relationship on a personal and professional level between the Worshipful Company of Marketors, the Chartered Institute of Marketing and other marketing organisations, which are all entirely independent….more
