Clive Humby is the former Chairman and co-founder of dunnhumby, a leading international marketing company, providing both consultancy and facilities managed services to a broad range of blue-chip clients. Clive Humby and wife Edwina Dunn started their business in their back bedroom in 1989 and by the time they retired in 2011, it had grown to an organisation of 1500 people, reaching 350m customers in 25 countries.

Humby and Dunn pioneered the use of data analysis for customer benefit and Clive was responsible for customer strategy, from analysis through to the implementation of client merchandising, store operation, marketing and communication strategies.
