Matt Duggan – Chief Marketing Officer (CMO)
Matt Duggan has had a pretty varied background to reach the point of becoming our Chief Marketing Officer here at RoarLocal.
Before becoming Neil’s business partner, Matt actually ran the Facebook Ads for RoarLocal and its clients as a freelancer. He was recruited by Roar co-founder and former partner, Nicola Cairncross, for whom he was working at the time.

His main drive in business is to help entrepreneurs to make more money by generating their perfect prospects online and then converting those prospects into long-term clients.
Matt oversees the team here at RoarLocal UK and it’s probably his melodic tones that you’ll be hearing in weekly meetings when you become a customer of Roar.

Inga Dahl – Social Media Manager
I fell into Social Media by happy accident. A long time ago, I stumbled into administration, which led to spending 10 years as an Executive PA and Office Manager in various companies. And although I was very good at what I did, it was sort of akin to housework for me. Something done by rote. But, I was a fastidious housekeeper!
However, towards the latter end of 2009, I wanted to do something else.It was at that time I met my previous employer, entrepreneur, Julia Macmillan, who was the founder of a successful niche dating site who asked me to come on board to help with its rebranding and operations, and also to assist her in another start-up for food and art lovers. It was there I learned all about Social Media and Content Management, and how to put it into practice.
Social Media is all about brand relationships with their customers/ clients. It’s like a good friendship if done right, and that’s what I aim for when managing the Social Media accounts for the clients we handle at ROARlocal. (ROARlocal also believes that Social Media brings traffic and attracts ideal prospects so I aim to do that too!)
In today’s technology driven world, you can have everything in place, but if your Social Media skills suck, word gets out, and gets out quickly!
