About Jarmila Yu

Jarmila Yu is an award winning globally ranked Top100 CMO and chartered marketer - a Fellow of the IDM and the CIM, a member of the DMA and the CIPR, and a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Marketors.

Having spent 25 years in technology marketing, building her career in start-ups and some of the world’s largest brands, Jarmila knows what it takes to develop successful marketing strategies and how to get the best performance out of teams.

Identifying a lack of accessible board-level marketing leadership for smaller businesses (and knowing the difference it can make when deployed). Following her corporate career she founded her own consultancy, YUnique Marketing Ltd, in 2016. 

A passionate believer in highlighting the essential role that effective marketing strategy has in any successful company, she’s made it her mission to provide the CMO Advantage to SMEs - to enable them to drive economic growth. 

She’s sought after for her expertise in Go-to-Market Strategy, Brand Optimisation and Integrated Campaigns.

With her team of trusted and proven professionals (expert marketing associates and carefully chosen partner agencies), she delivers the full spectrum of marketing services ranging from marketing brand and communications foundations up to a full out-sourced marketing function. 

Working on-demand, and being CMO led, means the services offered are extremely time and cost-effective - so are ideal for high-growth investment backed start-ups and scaleups alike, and provide considerable added value.

Jarmila is Vice Chair of the DMA Talent Council, serves on the advisory board of a Top 20 University and is the Chair of a World of Work Group at a school. She is a registered mentor, coaching young marketing and entrepreneur talent - she supports Enterprise Nation, The Peter Jones Foundation, Virgin Startup, BeTheBusiness and Small Business Britain.

She speaks at events, hosts business networking and is often featured in marketing and business publications, sharing her expertise and encouraging entrepreneurs and business leaders to leverage the power of excellent marketing and communications - starting of course, with strategy and with a firm focus on marketing talent development.

The big picture for Jarmila and her consultancy business is to provide the CMO Advantage to the SMEs that are the backbone of UK PLC enabling them to prosper, as that will create better, more rewarding jobs and drive economic growth. Jarmila and her consultancy are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, in particular #Goal 8 Decent Work & Economic Growth.
