Team

Ashleigh Best

Auckland and Sydney

Senior Account Executive

Ashleigh specialises in graphic design and digital advertising - drawing not just on her exec talents, but her training as a graphic designer.

She's worked across New Zealand and Australia, and managed a diverse portfolio of happy clients, ranging from sharing economy and e-commerce brands to non-profit organisations. And she gets a kick out of doing genuinely innovative work.

Andrew Blow

Auckland and Sydney

Managing Director (AUS)

You may know Andrew from his work as a TV news journalist. Or from his work promoting Sydney's new airport at Badgerys Creek. We know him as an experienced public affairs specialist, whose knowhow in reputation management and marketing have proved invaluable to a broad range of clients.

With a track record that includes working on multiple large-scale infrastructure projects and reporting directly to the Australian Prime Minister, Andrew is well-versed in tackling the big briefs.

Tyra Cadogan

London

Graphic Designer

Tyra is a graphic designer with a knack for working with all kinds of people, from all kinds of backgrounds.

She's had her fair share of exciting projects working in marketing and advertising, but her standout experience remains the interactive app she designed to support autistic children - a project born from personal family experience. Plus she's an excellent print-maker.

Robert Calvert

Auckland and Sydney

Senior Developer

A specialist in web development, software engineering and project management, Robert has worked with tech start-ups in New Zealand and the US, designing custom digital solutions and web experiences.

He joined us having led a team of software engineers and masterminded a major software rollout for his previous employer. And at TG, he's developing custom social media analysis and targeting tools for our broad suite of clients. He also very occasionally takes a break.

Amy Clements

London

Account Manager

As a Northerner, Amy’s sad to learn - quickly - that Londoners don’t say good morning on the tube. On the other hand, the city’s green spaces make her happy. She comes to TG with truckloads of experience in automotive, tech and other industries. And past projects have ranged from developing Groupe Renault’s websites to designing new-build flats. If you need it, she makes it happen.

Fraser Cotterill

Auckland and Sydney

Senior Account Executive

A Marketing and International Business graduate who's studied overseas, Fraser's outlook is very TG: genuinely international. He helps our clients find digital solutions that are intelligent, innovative and in tune with the wider world. And he can always be relied on for a fresh perspective. He feels privileged to have supported the fight against ovarian cancer with his first official TG campaign.

Roy Dormer

Auckland and Sydney

Graphic Designer

Roy's a firm advocate of the power of design to bring people together, wherever they are.

Making an impact for clients across the world, he's walked the talk, too. And he's even found time to support his local church in their creative team. Because Roy's happiest when our work makes an impact for the client - and the community.

Kelly Edwards

Auckland and Sydney

Senior Account Manager

It's not every day your Senior Account Manager is also an enrolled barrister and solicitor. Meet Kelly. She's shown she's up to the task of defending clients' interests, turning asset management and advertising knowhow into strong campaigns across the world, both as a core team member, and as a consultant.

Deborah Feldman

London

Managing Director (UK)

Deborah is a media and communications specialist with a wealth of experience: in marketing, strategy, crisis management and business development.

Before joining TG, she was responsible for engaging stakeholders and businesses for the Conservative Party. She's also been a Director at C|T Group and is the former Deputy Editor of Tatler Magazine. So our Hanover Square office isn't too far from her old haunt at Vogue House.

Jonny Ford

London

Creative Director

Jonny has worked in advertising agencies of all sizes. Along the way, he's written for market leaders, challengers and, strangely, seven cheese brands. And he's been fortunate enough to win a few awards. He combines enthusiasm for big ideas with attention to the details, and believes the best work comes from the tightest client-agency relationships. Like the creative project he's overseeing with Go Compare's Look After My Bills.

Away from work, he supports Glasgow Rangers through thick and thin. Mostly thin.

Charlotte Fox

London

Graphic Designer

Charlotte is a multi-disciplinary designer specialising in brand identity, concept creation and layout design.

Since graduating (with first-class honours, dontcha know), she's been based in London, enjoying her creative career, the odd gin and tonic, and winning a branding pitch for a high-end Shoreditch nightclub. She calls it her first baby.

Robert Gao

Auckland and Sydney

Senior Advertising Strategist

Robert's experienced in planning, buying and managing digital campaigns for commercial and government clients.

Above all, he gets out of bed to do work that drives real change. A keen student and practitioner of behavioural science, he joined TG to do some good for the world - combining creativity and data to great effect. It's why he's especially proud of our pro-bono work for Cure our Ovarian Cancer, making a national impact for the cause.

Oliver Gould

Auckland and Sydney

Senior Account Director

Ollie's come a long way since he started his advertising career at DDB - and not just moving from Auckland to Sydney. Leading global brand accounts like Volkswagen and McDonalds, he’s mastered sectors including automotive, finance and FMCG. And when he’s not hitting the slopes, he’s picking up international awards for creativity and effectiveness. Long story short, Ollie gets results.

Ben Guerin

London

Founding Partner

Ben is a firm believer that great things happen when creativity and technology come together.

As part-nerd and part-creative expert, he combines diverse expertise in web development, data analytics, branding and advertising strategy to help TG's clients push the boundaries of what can be achieved with digital.

Before co-founding TG, Ben ran a start-up teaching people how to code, and he still loves any opportunity to roll his sleeves up and dive into a niggly technical challenge.

Charlie Hammond

London

Account Executive

Charlie is serious about doing work that really makes a difference in the world - a sense of purpose he’s developed while studying and travelling in the UK, Hong Kong and beyond.

It’s why he’s so dedicated to his TG clients, and particularly to his government and public health communications projects.

In his free time, Charlie is an avid footballer and a terrible golfer.

Tom Hancocks

London

Account Executive

One of life's explorers, Tom enjoys the little things in life.

He also likes the big things: like creating stunning content for his TG clients (Halifax, for starters).

And thanks to his boundless enthusiasm and curiosity, he gets to enjoy those things an awful lot.

Jack Harding

London

Senior Copywriter

Jack’s a full-time copy geek, proud dad and occasional painter. He’s also a big picture thinker who joins us with a record of award-winning work from top ad agencies. He’s defined brands and created winning campaigns in sectors as diverse as breakdown cover and skincare. And he’s grateful he gets to do what he loves for a living.

Paige Harwood

Auckland and Sydney

Content Specialist

Paige comes to work with a simple goal: spread some joy.

Her experience in video production has taken her from documentaries to Australian Survivor to High Road. And she's happy to put all that talent into making great content for TG, in any channel we can dream up.

Deb Haworth

London

People and Operations Manager

Having started out as a research analyst in the financial sector, Deb moved into project management, focusing on the not-for-profit sector. Now at TG, she's kept very busy looking after the global team and every aspect of TG Operations.

In her rare periods of downtime, she's also a travel blogger and writer.

Haydon Howlett

Auckland and Sydney

Finance Director

Haydon is a mad keen skier, below average tennis player, and director of the global operations and finances at TG. One of the internationally-experienced members of the team, he's spent time in London and Berlin, before returning to New Zealand. And he's developed his considerable financial expertise while working internationally in the venture capital, FMCG, and start-up sectors.

Georgia Kirby

London

Executive Assistant

After graduating, Georgia worked in some of London's top literary agencies, editing high-profile titles like 'The Amber Keys' for publication. Then she realised she could make use of her plentiful communication talents in the world of advertising.

She comes into her own with the fine art of managing client projects, and enjoys nothing more than seeing we've delivered the best possible end product.


Jordan Knight

Auckland and Sydney

Copywriter

Jordan just sort of wandered in one day and started writing copy. Amazingly, he got a job out of it.

With a background in journalism, Jordan uses storytelling and good old fashioned ideas to help grow businesses. Interested in the combination of technology and art, and with absolutely no interesting hobbies whatsoever, he has now turned his sights to figuring out the future of digital communications. Where better to learn this than TG?

Stasa Lalovic

London

Account Executive

With a strong background in internal communications and PR, Stasa knows that you need two main things to get people engaged: enthusiasm and creativity.

Having done everything from rolling out large-scale telecommunication rebrands to working on record-breaking drone shows coded by kids, it’s very easy to see how Stasa lives and breathes TG’s ethos of digital excellence and creativity.

Maurice Lewis

London

Creative Strategist

Maurice is not your ordinary strategist. Actually, he's not just a strategist at all, as Maurice brings his creative talents to bear on every job.

In previous incarnations he was top digital staffer working on major legislation campaigns in the US House of Representatives - and a video creative lead supporting several US Governors in Vermont, Arizona and Iowa.

Danye Malate

Auckland and Sydney

Account Executive

A recent graduate with a degree in marketing and commercial law, Danya is super passionate about the future of marketing, creativity and digital communications.

Danya is excited to play an integral part in a forward-thinking company like TG, exploring and pioneering the new age of creative and digital advertising. Her passion is working on projects that can make real impact in the world. When she’s not working, you’ll find Danya learning new languages, studying new cultures, or staying sharp with a self-help book.

James Matulovic

Auckland and Sydney

Senior Technology Strategist

From multinationals to start-ups, and political to commercial campaigns on opposite sides of the planet, James' experience is eye-opening.

Now a versatile and well-travelled senior strategist, James makes his web development and creative expertise count for private and public sector clients. And his Conservative Party 'rave' video is the stuff of legend.

George Moody

Auckland and Sydney

Creative & Strategy Director

If people are talking about it, George usually knows about it.

From technology, to entertainment to not-for-profit: a long (and growing) line-up of industries have reaped the rewards of George's creative and strategic leadership, astute mind, and sharp eye for content. Which explains the strong client relationships he builds, wherever work takes him.

Jess Moore

London

Senior Account Manager

Starting her own business is one of Jess' personal highlights - launching an innovative, location-based fashion service. And now she gets to put her digital innovation skills to good use for our clients. Pre-TG, Jess ran campaigns for a wide range of household brands and did her bit for society, helping non-profits and purpose-led start-ups make an impact. Somehow, she also found time to learn French, Spanish and judo. Be warned: she's a black belt!

Sam Morgan

Auckland and Sydney

Head of Video Projects

Disney Channel. Warner Bros, Nickelodeon and MTV. World-renowned brand commercials. Documentaries. Sam's done it all in a long career of hands-on production and leadership.

With expertise honed working in the US, UK and Europe, Sam brings years of commercial experience to his role masterminding our video creation.

Sam Newton

London

Senior Account Director

Sam's a senior strategic and creative consultant, who has managed clients across the financial, FMCG and automotive industries.

He joined TG from Ogilvy Melbourne, where he delivered multi-million dollar, award-winning brand campaigns for AAMI. Lucky for us, he's now squeezing all that experience into helping Lloyds and Vodafone win at social.

Liam O'Brien

London

Strategist

One of our truly international team members, Liam joined TG after mining insight for JCDecaux, answering the big questions for major airports and gaming clients across two continents. Always looking to expand his mind, he’s a keen student of history and linguistics. And we’re happy to report his Spanish is good to go. So ‘si quieres probarlo conmigo, solo pregunta’. Which is also Liam’s philosophy for life.

Dylan Parshotam

Auckland and Sydney

Content Specialist

Dylan combines account management smarts with serious graphic and video creation skills.

He's a critical member of the 'meme machine'. So we're very happy to have him on the TG team. And once he's completed his degree in Law and Arts (one subject wasn't enough?!), we can't wait to welcome him back full-time.

Craig Ralph

London

Senior Account Director

Whether the public sector, financial services or automotive. You name a sector, chances are Craig's had a hand in it, making formidable campaigns on the London agency scene.

His personal highlight is helping a major UK bank define their global diversity and inclusion initiatives, from strategy through to a shortlisting for D&I Campaign of the Year.

Hayley Richman

London

Account Manager

Hayley's typical of a TG employee: curious, ambitious, driven. Her work in tech start-ups in the US and Australia is testament to that. If we were the kind of agency that used corporate cliches, she's what we'd call a 'self-starter'. Hayley played a key part in triggering a 'Comic Sans' typography trend in the UK after a cheeky Twitter graphic took the internet by storm.

Much less typically, however, she's also owned her own business.

Conor Ritchie

Auckland and Sydney

Media Director

Conor's an accomplished Media Director and a lead member of TG's Auckland team, specialising in paid advertising and digital strategy.

He's proven his talent for large-scale media buying, social media and search-engine marketing, working around the world. His personal highlight is leading a multi-million pound advertising programme for a major UK brand.

Tracey Scott

Auckland and Sydney

Assistant Accountant

It’s thanks to Tracey, that the finances of three busy global offices run smoothly. Having managed accounting across Australasia and the UK, she brings an impressive breadth and depth of experience to the table. And after four years in Switzerland, she’s happily rediscovering the joys of Kiwi life.

Laura Smith

Auckland and Sydney

Account Manager

With a proven track record of devising, creating and implementing successful marketing strategies to an array of different businesses -- while also running her own successful e-commerce charity on the side, Laura brings an enviable range of skills, talent and successes to TG.

Laura's infectious enthusiasm for producing gold-standard work, paired with her love for all things communications and strategy, means she is the perfect person to manage and execute any and all client accounts.

Eddie Thomas

Auckland and Sydney

Senior Account Director

Eddie is a true integrated Account Director, experienced in leading multi-channel advertising and digital campaigns in New Zealand and the UK.

As clients will testify, Eddie's as much problem solver as director. In the UK, he was responsible for re-positioning everybody’s Christmas favourite, Baileys Liqueur, reinvigorating global sales for the first time in a decade. He's also cracked some of the trickiest TG client challenges and is a senior leader in our Auckland team.

Sean Topham

London

Founding Partner

A proud Kiwi and co-founder of TG, Sean knows a thing or two about getting things done, having started TG as a small one-stop shop in Auckland. He’s since directed some of the world’s highest-profile campaigns, transforming brand fortunes with powerful storytelling, across industries.

He’s committed to turning his extensive experience into exceptional impact for TG's clients.

Jacqueline Wilson

London

Account Director

Jacqueline's talents include strategy, storytelling and campaign management, honed working on national and global advertising campaigns. She enjoys helping clients turn their problems into cracking campaigns.

Case in point: Jacqueline launched a benevolent lottery for her not-for-profit client Unite the Union, driving the campaign from positioning to completion, and raising funds well beyond client expectations.
