Jamie was born in the UK, schooled in England and went to the University of St Andrew’s, leaving with an MA Hons in Art History and a reasonable golf handicap. He has Scottish blood and isn’t afraid to wear the kilt.
After starting his advertising career in England, Jamie moved to Australia and spent ten years working for independent and multi-national advertising agencies working on global consumer brands as well as business to business clients. His multi-channel experience is complemented by a rich and diverse client experience from marketing luxury fast cars to sore throat lozenges.
Along with Bella, he moved to Dubai in 2009 to lead the account team servicing several global brands across the Middle East and North Africa for a multi-national agency network. After nearly five years abroad it was time to return to Australia in 2013. Jamie wanted to apply his skills of 20 years to run his own show, live by the coast with his young family and help small to medium size businesses through more creative and measurable, marketing initiatives. Since opening its doors in 2014, Jamie and The Marketing Clan have been providing aspiring businesses with world-class agency talent and campaigns that are both efficient and highly effective.
Jamie is a scuba diver of 22 years, loves to exercise and thinks he’s a bit of a naked chef.
Originally from the Shoalhaven, Bella has travelled the world and was brave enough to agree to move to Dubai in 2009 for a change of country and culture. After nearly five years in the UAE and having had two children born in the desert, she returned to Australia and established The Marketing Clan with Jamie.
Bella brings 20 years of experience working as a graphic designer and senior mac artist, both directly for clients and also advertising agencies, with her folio boasting virtually every industry imaginable including financial services, FMCG, telecommunications, healthcare and luxury travel to name a few. She has worked as part of large creative teams at independently owned and multi-national agencies as well as operating as a freelancer before launching The Marketing Clan.
With invaluable skills in design, pre-production, finished artwork and studio management, Bella takes considerable pride in attention to detail and quality control – both essential for producing effective marketing communications. On top of being incredibly organised, she makes pretty amazing children’s birthday cakes. Just ask Jamie.
Throughout his 35-year marketing career, Terry has spent the bulk of his time involved in identifying and creating business growth opportunities for major clients in both Europe and Australia. Central to this has been gaining an understanding of buyers’ persona through data insights and primary research, how the sales cycle for their business works and how to ensure each component is working to its best effect, whether through measurable acquisition, activation or retention strategies.
There’s not much Terry doesn’t know about the professional and financial services sectors, both in business and consumer marketing. His experience includes PWC, Westpac Business, Private and Institutional Bank; Westpac Bank - Consumer Markets, BT Super, QBE, NRMA and CFO Advisory. He possesses a truly integrated approach to developing communication strategies, having worked across all media and disciplines within a number of advertising, marketing services and digital agencies. He’s also an excellent project manager and has a practical understanding of the processes needed to ensure campaigns are developed on brief, on time and on budget.
Away from marketing, Terry is an avid golfer and regularly sails. His passion for sport extends to coaching and managing his local soccer team to following Derby County. Oh, and if Wales is playing in the rugby, best you call back later.
Brett grew up as one of those kids who spent endless hours drawing cars, robots and cartoons in the back of his school books. Given his ‘slight’ obsession with design, it was no surprise he went on to complete a Bachelor of Industrial Design. On graduating, Brett worked for several design agencies including Australia’s leading Industrial Design consultancy for five years, a place where designing products and developing competitive, cutting edge solutions was the norm – from high tech banking products through to packaging, branding and interactive displays.
Seeking to create a broader base for his skills in industrial design, illustration and graphic design, Brett’s next move was into a large independent integrated agency, where he was involved in creating promotions, advertising, corporate communications, brand development and strategy. Working on numerous Australian and International brands from pet food, to energy, dental health and financial services. For more than 15 years now he has been a creative consultant and has been working with The Marketing Clan since our doors opened.
Apart from making a crust and keeping his two cats well fed, Brett has a passion for European cars, bike riding and watching a decent game of ‘real’ footy. While he lives nowhere near the northern braches of Sydney, he supports Manly. Go figure.
Peter has worked in the advertising and media industries for over 25 years in Australia and the UK. After graduating with a Bachelor of Business (Communications) from QUT in Brisbane, he spent the first decade of his career specialising in direct and promotional marketing. During the past 15 years Peter has been heavily involved at a senior level in the creative departments of both large multinationals and independently-owned agencies, creating fully integrated campaigns for everything from banks, energy companies and FMCG clients to automotive, agribusiness and wine. He’s received many honours along the way including prestigious awards at Cannes, D&AD, New York Festivals, Spikes, Kinsale Sharks, Caples and even the stupendously named Gold Award of Montreux.
Away from advertising Peter is a published children’s book author, freelance cycling feature writer and blogger. His love of road cycling and racing has seen him break more bones than he cares to remember and he currently sets off metal detectors at airports all over the world thanks to a series of titanium plates and screws in his left shoulder following a 70kmh crash in California.
Quite simply, Warrick is one of Australia’s most accomplished creative services producers. He brings to the Clan over 20 years of procurement and production management experience gained with many of Australia’s most respected multinational advertising agencies. Possessing a deep and hands-on operational knowledge of the design and production processes across print, digital and broadcast media, Warrick is adept as giving early advice on the execution approach and visual integration, production budgeting and project management for the full gamut of projects - from tactical Local Area Marketing campaigns to nationwide integrated campaigns with complex, multi-channel rollouts.
He also has an enviable ‘little black book’ of artists, craftspeople and production partners that he can engage for our clients, and in 2014 was proud to be credited with an international Cannes Lion Award for his role as Lead Producer on the ground-breaking Durex Fundawear project.
A keen photographer, he also owns what is quite possibly the world’s cutest dog.
