    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.

  • Andy Thorne

    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!

  • Vinny Barker

    Senior Account Manager

    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.

  • Freddie Firth

    Production Co-Ordinator

    I love working at OB because everyone is lovely and super hard-working. The office has a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere and we all strongly work towards the company's values of respect, professionalism, understanding and creativity. I believe that is why it is as successful as it is. I feel very at home here!

    In my spare time I like hanging out and playing gigs with my band across London. You'll probably find me at your nearest independent gig, or just at the pub spending time with friends.

  • 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!

  • Milo Knight

    Production Manager

    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!!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Cat Smith

    Senior 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.

  • Megan White

    Sales Executive

    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!).

    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.

    In my spare time outside of the office, you will more than likely find me hitting the shops as I can never turn down a good shopping spree.
