Daniel heads up Brainlabs US. Having helped to grow Brainlabs UK during the past five years, he is now leading the US team to similarly epic growth in America. He has a masters from Oxford University, supports Arsenal FC, and believes that beans on toast for breakfast is a noble protest against the avocado.

Operating Partner Carrie is an avid ambassador for everything Paid Search. She contributes to the PPC Hero blog and regularly speaks at conferences such as State of Search and Hero Conf. With a Masters degree in Policy Analysis focusing on statistics and economics, she’s also no stranger to numbers. This numerical know-how allows her to successfully supercharge client revenue and return. Her passion for Paid Search success is only rivalled by one thing: her love for her two rescued pitbulls, Amadeus and Twiggy.

In his role as Operating Partner, Jeff leverages his thirteen-year record of success scaling PPC accounts and building strong relationships to ensure client success. He regularly shares his extensive knowledge across industry press and speaks at leading conferences across the US and Europe. Like many of our team, Jeff’s the outdoorsy type, and thinks there’s nothing better than being with mother nature for ten miles at a time. Not only that, he’s also a history buff and self-confessed WW2 nerd.

As a Head of Biddable, Rich is responsible for a division of 50 paid social, search, programmatic display and technology specialists. His goal is to understand the challenges our clients face, and then build bespoke, cross-functional teams that can deliver real value to businesses. When he isn’t marketing, he’s learning Italian. He also loves DJing, and hosts a radio show at the Roundhouse.

As an Operating Partner, Tabatha (unsurprisingly) focuses on the Operations side of things. Ever the maths graduate, her flair for numbers regularly comes in handy, whether she’s analysing quarterly client feedback, or conducting analysis of the link between market volatility and digital marketing performance. In her spare time, Tabatha is a serial hobbyist, always picking up something new; currently she’s rowing, drumming, tap dancing, and learning Latin (not all at the same time).

After studying for a Post Graduate Diploma in PR, Jess worked in a local government press office and was glad to find that it wasn’t much like ‘The Thick of It’ at all. Since then she’s worked across the public, private and non-profit sectors before joining as a partner in our London office.

Louis has brought with him deep expertise in content strategy, which he’s enjoyed developing over the last several years. When he’s not head down in SEO, he’s likely aiming to check out all best restaurants NYC has to offer. Outside of work, he also values his Italian & Cuban descent.
