Meet The Team

Neil Gilkes – Director of Sales

With over 20 years of experience in the publishing industry, I am proud to be one of the founders of Read This magazine. Our company is well-known for producing high-quality local community content and providing cost-effective advertising solutions. Our magazine is a must-have for any coffee table.

In 2021, we started Read This magainze using our own personal savings and have never relied on outside investments. I strongly believe in following my instincts and taking a unique approach to business. Prior to Read This magzine, I served as the Sales Director for Magazines and Media Ltd, also known as Your Letterbox magazine, for 8 years. I am thrilled to lead the sales function for the newly formed Read This magazine.

My passion goes beyond just your marketing campaign. I am committed to helping your business thrive and succeed.
