Ralph Lockwood, President
After stints at Kimberly-Clark and DHL, Ralph Lockwood got into the advertising sales business when he joined Reed Business International in the early 1980s. At Reed, Ralph was promoted to Managerial level after 2 years, and worked in the HQ in Sutton, where he met future business partner Gerry Rhoades-Brown. Agreeing that they would have a better future in a business partnership than at a corporation, Huson International Media was launched in September 1988.
Ralph moved from the UK to California in 1995 to set up and expand the business, including opening the New York office in 1999. Ralph also spearheaded the drive into new directions, such as Business, News, and Consumer publications which now represents over 30% of the business in the US, and also Domestic US representation which now represents over 20% of the US business and which will be a major part of expansion over coming years.
Ralph has been happily married for 20 years and lives with his wife and 2 sons in Los Gatos, California. He enjoys golf, tennis, and ‘California living’ - apart from the occasional earthquake.
