    Chief Executive Officer

    I feel very proud to be part of #TeamOB – we have built such a fantastic team of people who are dedicated to providing the very best service to our clients and contributing to an amazing working environment. As a company, we never stand still and always look to improve our offering – we also like to challenge the norm - ice bucket challenges, parody videos, bootcamp team building: we’ve done them all!

    When I’m not at my desk, I can be found reading Jane Austen novels, watching BBC 4 history documentaries, and, just very very occasionally, in the pub.

    Sales & Marketing Director

    You can take the boy out of Essex but you can't take the Essex out of the boy. I'm Sales & Marketing Director @ OB and love the promo industry. I'm so proud of what we've achieved at OB, winning multiple awards, recognition and year-on-year profitable growth - it's a simple recipe, work hard and do the right thing – and we have an amazing team who sometimes even listen to me.

    I'm a Southend United fan of 30 plus years, which I blame for me being so grumpy. I love to scuba dive as it's just another world down there and so peaceful. There are some who say I like a Jaeger - but you shouldn't believe everything you hear!

  • Rhys Bailey

    Finance Manager

    Working at Outstanding Branding has taught me a few things. Firstly, the lyrics to the song ‘We Will Rock You – Queen’. Secondly, what its like to work within a great team of people at the heart of a hardworking industry. The best and final thing I’ve learnt in the last year at Outstanding Branding is that I am really not a great website bio writer.

    In my spare time I always try and catch a game of the mighty West Ham United battling relegation or watch Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad and anything on Netflix that is remotely interesting.

    A little known fact about me is that I was Time magazine’s person of the year 2006.

  • Liz Young

    Commercial Manager

    Joining #TeamOB has been such an exciting opportunity, especially with such a hard working and fun team. After 12 years in the promo industry each day is still full of surprises!

    Outside of work I am found either at the gym or with a glass of wine (it’s called balance).

  • Vinny Barker

    Account Director

    I’ve been in the promotional merchandise industry for many years as both distributor and supplier and always had great respect for Outstanding Branding. How they work, their passion and what they can offer clients is amazing. Now I have a chance to be part of #teamOB.

    The industry is so varied, no two days are the same and I love the people. I always look forward to the yearly shows, seeing new products and catching up with old friends. It’s great to be involved again.

    Outside of OB I enjoy spending time with family, socialising with friends and keeping fit. Keen 10K runner (maybe a marathon one day!) and playing football at the weekend.

  • Holly Knowlden

    Production Co-Ordinator

    Working at OB has allowed me to thrive within a creative industry and excel my already acquired skills. Working here is amazing and its lovely to thrive with a great team who will always be there to support me!

    Outside the office, you’ll either fine me at the gym or planning my next holiday adventure.

  • Kelly Rutherford

    Production Co-Ordinator

    Outstanding Branding is a passionate and energetic company with hard working people who are dedicated to promotional merchandise and the clients experience. This is the perfect environment to learn and develop skills while still having fun.

    When I’m not at work I’ll usually be visiting an art gallery or museum. I love being creative, making sculptures and painting..

  • Emma Reynolds

    Sales Manager

    One of the things I love about working in the promotional merchandise industry, is the variety of weird and wonderful items you can brand and suggest to clients. Plus everyone gets excited about a free giveaway! OB is a fab place, we work hard and we play hard. There's not a day that goes by without a laugh and a giggle.

    Outside work I enjoy fundraising, most recently I took part in an adventure challenge in Costa Rica for the Princes Trust. This involved hiking, cycling, kayaking and white water rafting 270km from coast to coast. Oh, and I have appeared in two Harry Potter films!

  • Becci Cottam

    Sales Team Manager

    Outstanding branding really is a positive, fun and creative place to work. I feel very proud to be part of #TeamOB! With the massive range of products available, fantastic supplier relationships and our imaginative and passionate team, there’s no doubt we will bring you a product to make your logo stand out from the crowd.

    At heart, I am true ‘northern lass’, I work hard and play hard. When I’m not in the office you will most likely find me in a wine bar or eating pizza.

  • Antonio Parco

    Senior Designer

    I’ve been always looking for a Company like OB where I can use all my set of skills and be challenged with great projects. And also work along with professional and funny people who make my days always exciting! And finally I’m here!

    When I’m not at work I follow my passion for screenwriting, drawing, photography and video gaming. Or simply doing absolutely nothing, listening some good Jazz and enjoining a good meal. Yes I love to keep myself busy!

  • Clara the Cow

    Head of the Herd

    I sprung into existence on 3rd August 2009, a fully fledged, feisty, funky Friesian. I’ve been a part of #teamOB since the very beginning – I’ve helped in all the office moves, inspired the graffiti-style murals on the office walls, and even handed out sweets on the streets of London to promote this industry. I love the promotional merchandise world because I get to learn new things all the time, and always have the support of the #teamOB family – oh and they know how to play even harder than they work! My proudest achievement so far is being the poster girl for the recent #ColourClara colouring competition. I know there’s a lot more in store for me and Outstanding Branding to achieve together - #teamOB always keep mooooooving, so I don’t think I’ll ever get put out to pasture.

  • Brittany Hill

    Account Manager

    After being in the industry for 7 years I am thrilled to start working with Outstanding Branding. I’m excited to work in a fast paced environment with fun, charismatic people who respect and understand each other. I truly am excited to be a part of team #OB

    Outside of the office I enjoy training which includes a mix of boxing and powerlifting, this started around 5 years ago and has become a large part of my life. Other than that I enjoy going out with my friends and sitting in on a Sunday watching box sets.

  • Kunil Tailor

    Finance Assistant

    Working at Outstanding Branding is fun, creative, exciting and challenging. I always look forward to coming in to the office everyday because it is full of vibrant and exciting people. Everyone here is like a family and we treat each other with the upmost respect. I have developed my self-confidence by speaking and getting along with a variety of people which I feel is important because the world is full of different people.

    In my spare time, I am actually quite a busy man, I am a manager of a music drum school called the London School Of Dhol where I improve my drum skills as well as teaching the next generation. I am also a dancer where I take part and help direct dance shows and I am also a trainee DJ because I love music.
