RED is a digital creative agency whose mission is to develop marketing that people love and use. We’ve been digital since day one, because we knew that’s where the world was headed.
We believe in creating for the people - the fans, consumers, and audiences we all care about. These people are the foundation of everything we do — through research and data, we look at the world through their eyes, not just the brand’s. We do this because we insist on creating marketing and experiences that actually add value to people’s lives.
And finally, we’re part of Endeavor, which gives us unprecedented access to the very heart of culture and the things people care about. If you want to influence culture, you first have to sit in the middle of it.
CEOI've spent my whole career in advertising and brand building, but found myself lucky enough to do so in a wide variety of situations. I started my career as an account man at CHI&Partners in London England, and went on to four years at BBH. Having grown tired of London's weather, I moved to Droga5 in New York, when it was relatively young, before later on becoming Head of Account Management at Anomaly. In 2013 I was tempted back to Droga5 to be Global Head of Entertainment, running their relationship with investor WME | IMG (now Endeavor), and leading the agency's work in the entertainment industry. It was during that time that I first met the team at RED, and was blown away by the talent, abilities and - frankly - soul of the place. So, I was delighted to come on board as CEO and help continue the growth, development, and search for breakthrough work around every corner.
