Marketing Mole: Who does Google think you are? - Gwyn Burr, Customer director, Sainsbury's

- The first result links to Sainsbury's corporate website, featuring Burr and the management team.

- The second reference is to Sainsbury's 2006 annual report, giving a detailed description of Burr's role.

- The third result links to the website of the BITC, of which Burr is chair of the CRB team.

- The fourth links to Sainsbury's 2008 annual report.

- The fifth listing pushes to a 2002 BBC feature on Burr's former employer, BHS.

Verdict - Unlike many marketers in similar positions, Burr's profile is greatly boosted by her online visibility on Sainsbury's comprehensive website. Four of the five results have pictures.

Action - Burr appears not to have actively engaged with the media on topical issues. She has created a platform but needs more exposure. Regular contributions to the national media would achieve this.
