Meet The Team

Craig Delahoy

Craig Delahoy

CEO

Craig’s career started out in estate agency in 1988 after studying business at college. His first job was as a sales negotiator for a big national company, a company that he went on to become a branch manager for, before the age of 21. He spent several years as the Managing Director of an award-winning family business building executive homes and since 2008 has spent his time as a specialist database business coach within the real estate industry. His client base stretches throughout UK and USA. It was seeing a gap in his clients’ marketing strategies that lead him to start the 36 to Convert program, in order to support his clients with their database marketing. The product proved to be so successful that it now extends to many other sectors too. His life time goal is to own a lighthouse as it represents having the resilience to stand strong in the face of adversity. A quality, he feels, is required to be successful.
