Christmas Spotlight: Marcus Brew, UNTHA UK

Year after year, our festive spotlights prove very popular on our business pages. So, our advent calendar of business people is once again back for 2019! For every day of December, we’ll be putting a notable name from the region through their paces, with 12 quickfire ‘one word’ question.

Next up, it’s Marcus Brew, managing director of Boroughbridge-headquartered UNTHA UK.

Sum up 2019 for your business, in one word


And a word that summarises how you expect 2020 to pan out?


What’s the one word from this year you’re sick of hearing?

Come on, there could be no other… Brexit!

And the one you hope to hear more of in the 12 months ahead?


Which fellow Yorkshire business has impressed you this year?

Microsoft partner Dynamix, based in Wetherby.

If you could have one present for Christmas what would it be?

An uninterrupted festive break with the family.

What’s the best Christmas gift you’ve ever bought for someone else?

A car for my wife (but I’m wary of reminding her of it, in case it sets expectations for this year!)

What do you think is the most under-rated thing on your Christmas dinner plate?

A knife and fork – can’t get far without it!

How many people will be around your table on Christmas day?


And which word would you use to sum up the ambience?

Happy (or should that read, chaotic?)

Your favourite Christmas tipple?

A good whiskey.

And a message to your friends, family, colleagues and peers as they welcome in 2020? (you can have more than one word for this one!)

Nobody ever knows with any certainty what’s around the corner, but with focus, determination and great people around you, you’re better equipped to tackle anything.
