Managing Director @ Distract
Peter Watson is Managing Director and co-Founder of Distract, an innovative and award-winning marketing agency based in the Cathedral city of Lincoln in the East Midlands.
Most recently, Peter has been named as Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
Distract was founded in 2015 while Peter and his business partner and Operations Director, Bradley McKenny were still in their second year of university, primarily as a social media agency.
Distract has since grown to a team of 17, serving more than 75 clients across the UK and beyond. The agency now offers paid search, paid social and digital PR services as well as an in-house creative team that encompasses web design and development.
Many entrepreneurs claim to be innovative and forward thinking, but few plough ahead as much as Distract. In a bold move in 2018, Peter took the unusual step of hiring a dedicated videographer to follow him throughout his working week to document his business journey. There are more than 100 episodes of the documentary ‘Inside The Journey’ available to watch on YouTube.
