Marketing Mole: Who does Google think you are? - Paul Foley UK managing director, Aldi

- The first result links to the website of an Australian photographer.

- The second refers to a Wikipedia disambiguation page. It lists six Paul Foleys, none of which is the Aldi managing director.

- The third listing is for a Guardian interview with the Foley we are interested in.

- The fourth result pushes another photographer, this time one in the US.

- The fifth links to a MySpace page for a US DJ.

Verdict - It's surprising how many 'googlegangers' a senior executive can have. Foley must ensure that the message he puts out to the world remains immediate and fresh.

Action - Aldi has moved on since July 2008 and it would be good to have more relevant thoughts from Foley on where he sees the business today. Aldi's press website, which is remarkably static, should also mention him.
