Dilys Maltby – Senior Partner

Dilys is Senior Partner and Circus co-founder. As a practitioner she has led engagements for a wide range of clients – including Pets at Home, Dunelm, Selfridges, Microsoft, Virgin, and Hyundai UAM.

Prior to Circus, Dilys was General Manager, Brand and Marketing, for The Body Shop International.

The Body Shop was a founding client and re-engaged Circus to help articulate its Purpose, under the new ownership of Natura.

Dilys started her career in advertising and then moved to client side roles at Bonhams and Habitat – here she worked for Terence Conran: a short but memorable experience sparking her enjoyment of all things brand, retail and design. Dilys then moved to Fitch working for Rodney and to Imagination, for Gary Withers.

Dilys has two children, one dog and her husband, Nick Maland, is an award winning children’s book illustrator.
