Mark Loydall

Principal Project Manager

As a Principal Project Manager at Foolproof I am responsible for a portfolio of clients within the business that range from Financial Services to the Entertainment Games sector. My role is to ensure the successful delivery for all client projects within my portfolio.

A big part of my role is conducting weekly reviews of all live projects in my portfolio, assessing process, profitability & risk. I am also responsible for assigning new projects to Project Managers in the team based on their skill-set and their level of experience and provide coaching and support when required.

I own the scoping, planning and costing for every project that is delivered by my portfolio team. I work closely with a Portfolio Account Director (Aimee Hunt) & Portfolio Principal Consultant (Phillip Morton) to manage the quality of work and client relationships. I tend to work on the larger experience design programmes of work that we deliver within the portfolio.

I line manage two Project Manager’s in the team and am responsible for their career development and am also part of the PM Leadership team and have a responsibility for creating initiatives to develop the Project Management practice at Foolproof.

I started my career in brand experience before deciding to move into digital project management where I have been ever since. I pride myself on being a methodical Project Manager and have delivered a range of successful projects throughout my career. These include software development, eCommerce websites, and mobile apps to name a few. I specialise in using my experience of working with best practice methodologies to create bespoke project solutions.

Outside of work I love watching NBA games and getting on the court whenever I can, I’ve also just recently started indoor rock climbing despite my fear of heights.

  • Prince2 Practioner
  • Certified Agile SCRUM Master
