The existing marketing team is not UK specific. The UK media, 
temperament, retail environment etc are all specific to uk.

A recent discussion  (for me) on the (global) marketing list included 
an off list discussion with an apparently USA guy. From his response 
to me it seemed he had misinterpreted one of my points about a shipit 
leaflet. It was not really important except I concluded that the 
environment and culture he was apparently working in was very 
different to mine in berkshire uk.

I would still very much want to remain on the global marketing list, 
but see an advantage in having more local movement and focus.
