  5. 5. Crossing borders Based smack-bang in the middle of two of the world’s most important automotive centres, we call both Silverstone in the UK and Detroit, USA home. Working across all EMEA regions, North America and Australia, we have extensive experience in multi‑lingual communications and a clear understanding of the significance of local cultures on business procedures. It’s key to get these elements right when trying to sell in a global market and CMB have the presence, experience and expertise to help you take this journey. “CMB Automotive Marketing have consistently provided Cummins with the highest quality marketing and support, demonstrating a real understanding of our business, markets and brand.

  6. 6. The road we’re on... If brand positioning is about differentiating yourself from the competition and offering something no one else can, then we’re perhaps our own best case study. With automotive experience since we started and recognising the need to deliver real value to our clients, we stuck our flag in the ground and claimed automotive, its supply chain and aftermarket as our territory. And so we built and built and built on that ground, always developing deeper expertise and clearer understanding of the industry. We’re still building now, still learning, still growing stronger and expanding globally - and our clients benefit from all we have learned. Along the way we’ve passed many opportunities to wander into other territories. As tempting as these may have been at the time, they would have watered down, compromised and distracted us from developing the expertise needed to achieve our goal; To be the go-to agency for the automotive sector Chris Bowers - Director Tim Foster - Project Manager Key Team Members
  7. 7. What we’re all about... Relevant When we accept that change is inevitable, the need to remain relevant becomes paramount. So we drive our clients and ourselves to explore new territory, adopt new technologies and where necessary, embrace the change needed to remain relevant in an ever changing world. Connected We live in the connected world - digitally, professionally, socially and internationally. Being better connected gives us the knowledge, experience and the culture to solve business problems better. And by connecting our clients with their customers, we create better business opportunities for everyone. Driven Driven is our industry – our only industry. With deep automotive expertise, we’re able to see the bigger picture, understand your problems and draw on experience to efficiently find the right solutions. We are driven - to seek out new challenges, to continually improve, to find and share success.
