    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 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.

  • Nicki White

    Senior Account Manager

    I am hugely customer service-driven and am passionate about building strong working relationships with my clients. I love working for such a young, dynamic team. Not one day is the same at OB towers and the environment that we work in is fantastic, especially when we are on target and the bar opens on a Friday afternoon!

    A favourite part of my job, other than smashing my target, is taking my clients out for VIP treatment at the O2!

  • 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!

  • Jordan Trickett

    Production Manager

    OB is such a fun and vibrant place to work. There is never a typical (or dull) day in the office, which makes it pretty hard to leave in a bad mood but not impossible. Juggling all the orders we process can be a challenge but we pride ourselves on always getting it done right and we like to think that’s exactly what we do.

    If I’m not immersed in the world of promotional merchandise you can find me trying to perfect my line dancing skills.

  • Milo Knight

    Senior Production Co-ordinator

    A personal passion of mine is most definitely manners; after all they cost nothing and I hold my manners to the highest standard I can! A fact you probably don’t know about me but definitely should, is that I make a famous banana cake from my own personal secret recipe so if you every pop in to say hi you might be lucky enough to take home a slice!

    I enjoy my work and Outstanding Branding because of the dedicated and polite team I have the pleasure to work with.

  • Fred Goozee

    Client Experience Manager

    Working at OB is great because I love the positive, fast-paced atmosphere. Everyone here is totally dedicated and passionate about Promotional Merchandise. Because we are so passionate, it is really satisfying seeing all the creative energy transform into great products.

    When I’m not at the office, I’m usually out absorbing London's unique culture. I also love skateboarding with my friends!!

  • 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.

  • Alex Brown

    Account Manager

    When the opportunity to work for a company as successful as Outstanding Branding I jumped at the chance. After numerous years of experience within the promotional merchandise industry it has quickly become clear that OB are one of, if not the best company to work for. I look forward to developing and growing within the company’s friendly and ambitious environment.

    In my spare time I play in goal for AFC Kingston, football is a big part of my life and always will be. When I studied at University I had the opportunity to coach football over in the States. Travelling the world has also been an ambition of mine but this will come later on in life!

  • Cat Smith

    Account Manager

    I love working in the merchandise industry as it gives me the opportunity to sell products which are fun and different with a variety of brands. I get excited by new products and can’t wait to tell my clients about them. I get stuck in with each brief and I enjoy a challenge so whatever your requirements are, put me to the test!

    Outside of the office you’ll catch me at the gym, having a Netflix binge or dragging my friends out!

  • Becci Cottam

    Sales Team Leader

    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.

  • Brittany Hill

    Sales Executive

    After being outside of the Industry for just over a year I am excited to jump back in and couldn’t think of a better company to work with than 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 kickboxing and powerlifting, this started around 5 years ago when I decided to lose weight. Other than that I enjoy going out with my friends and sitting in on a Sunday watching box sets.

    I couldn’t have asked for a better company to work for than Outstanding Branding! The OB Team are so fun to work with and are passionate about everything they do, when you work with a group of people like this, it’s hard not to have a good day at the office. I look forward to developing and growing within the company and the promotional merchandising industry.

    Outside of the office you’ll usually find me at the gym or binging a Netflix boxset with a glass of wine (tequila on a Friday though!).

  • Saj Hussain

    Senior Account Manager

    I have been in the industry for many years and can truly say that working for Outstanding Branding is so much more rewarding then in previous roles. The OB team are one big family with their clients at the forefront of their priorities. We work in a very fast paced and creative environment which helps us unearth that next great merchandise idea for you. I am a great believer in treating people the way you would like to be treated, so spend alot of my time listening to my clients to ensure I deliver what they really want.

    Outside of work I try to spend as much time with my wife and two kids. I take great pleasure in honing up my ‘embarrassing dad’ skills for my teenage daughters benefit as well as trying to be the next Pep Guardiola to my young football loving son.

    I just joined Outstanding Branding as a Production Coordinator. I love all my team members because they have made me feel so welcomed. I enjoy working in this environment because it allows me to showcase my skills and knowledge. I am a bubbly and an extrovert person. I love meeting people as I'm a twin myself!

    Dancing is my passion and I do enjoy cooking international dishes such as Indian, Italian and all sort of new and exciting dishes. Remember guys, i like being around people because when i was born i wasn't born alone! Double the power and energy.

  • Meera Tailor

    Production Co-Ordinator

    OB is the perfect working environment, everyone treats you like family, you’re never short of things to do and every day you come across a cool new product! Being a production coordinator, it’s definitely in my nature to keep as organised as possible, and you’ll always know if I’ve been around if you see a small henna doodle on some paper near you!

    In my spare time, you can find me at the dance studio, I’ve been dancing for nearly 20 years and I’m very passionate about learning new styles. And I’m probably the biggest chocoholic you’ll come across too!
