Pete Longhurst, Co-founder, CEO

A veteran in the digital space, with 17 years experience in video, branded content, strategy, ideation, development, search marketing and social media.  A key role of any CEO is to obsess about building world class products, world class teams and enviable reputations; and "with our amazing team, we believe we're smashing it!"

Pete is usually on an alternative fitness regime and fad diet. Or drinking Jack Daniels.

Olive, Head of Security

Woof! Hi, I am Olive and I run this joint.

With 14 (dog) years of experience in digital media, I decided to join these guys as part of my long term ambition to take over the world of advertising one dog walk at a time.

If you happen to pop into the office, bring some biscuits and make time to take me out to the park for a spin around my favourite bushes and trees.
