Tom HornbyPAID MEDIA SPECIALIST
With his mighty stature, service in the Royal Navy, and near-decade of Paid Media experience, Tom brings discipline, order and real expertise to his role.
Rita SofianeCRM AND EMAIL SPECIALIST
Hailing from Morocco, trilingual Rita loves nothing more than live music and her dog Parker. Having won everyone’s hearts with his office visits, we can see why.
Rachel BuckFINANCE & ADMIN MANAGER
BANC’s unofficial “director of vibes”, Rach is responsible for making sure we play hard too - and still finds the time to settle debts.
Rachel O'BrienCMS DEVELOPER
Going from apprentice to developer, Rachael’s journey with us has been a treat to see. We just wish her pet woodpigeon Pedro was around to see it too.
Oliver UrwinSENIOR COPYWRITER
Bothering the neighbours with his drums, bashing out top copy for our clients, Oliver’s icy exterior belies the man’s true passion: taking care of his houseplants.
Niki LauCREATIVE LEAD
Petrolhead Niki’s past life designing cars and living in Turin wasn’t extravagant enough. So now he calls West Didsbury home and works in Stretford.
Nicolas MahlerSENIOR DEVELOPER
A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside a developer, Nico’s earned comparisons to the likes of Pedro Pascal and Jason Segel. His web dev skills are A-list worthy, too!
Neil DringCLIENT SERVICES DIRECTOR
Part cycling fanatic, part account management extraordinaire, all Scouser. Walking Carhartt ad Neil does his bit for the cool dad quotient, with a touch of cheeky wit as well.
Neil BirchallCOMMERCIAL DIRECTOR
The cool dad by which all cool dads are measured, Neil’s easy-going charm, and equally charming doggo Mac, light up everyone’s day. He’s ace.
Nathan BrethertonSEO EXECUTIVE
Wigan born and bred, a passion for rugby courses through Nathan’s veins. The only other things that come close: meta tags, canonicals and a well-optimised web page.
Matt HampsonCMS DEVELOPER
Making a splash at Olympic swimming trials in his younger years, philosophy-loving Matt now brings a cool, calm to the Dev team. BANC’s most zen employee.
Mathieu MullerLEAD ENGINEER
Bringing French finesse to the creation of our client websites, Matty’s 20 years of experience make him a worthy leader of the web development team.
Martin CozensMANAGING DIRECTOR
“Golf, film, literature, food” read Martin’s interests. A snapshot of sophistication that’s only slightly offset by his appearance as a fake husband on the Dale Winton-hosted show The Other Half.
Leanne KeareyHR & ADMINISTRATION DIRECTOR
Gracing Manchester’s galleries with her own masterpieces, Leanne’s arty side is matched only by her skills at making BANC an ace place for us to work.
Lauren ReganORGANIC SEARCH STRATEGIST
Content strategies fear her, beaches love her, Lauren’s jet-set lifestyle sends BANC’s glam levels sky high. Her dog Ringo’s a cutie too.
1/3 of our North East contingent, Mackem Laura makes light work of copy briefs, bringing words to life with her quiet confidence. Low key our most stylish, too.
Katie RossingtonCONTENT & SEO EXECUTIVE
Part of BANC’s youth wing, Katie’s made some proper progress within the industry so far. Rumours that she celebrated with a tattoo in Gran Canaria are unconfirmed.
Kate WoodsHEAD OF DIGITAL
Originally setting her sights on a job in Nuclear Physics, Kate of course landed in the world of marketing instead. Re-joining us in 2022, she’s back and bossing it now.
Routinely voted BANC’s Best Dressed, JT’s steely, Goldblum-esque stature is more than a match for any complex copy briefs that come his way.
Jonathan BranneySTRATEGY DIRECTOR
The 27th great-grandson of William the Conqueror, JB’s resume may lack military efforts, but he still wields serious power mapping out long-term growth for our clients.
Jessica MottersheadCONTENT & PRODUCTION SPECIALIST
Gracing the small screen aged 11 alongside Helena Bonham Carter, Jess swapped it all for her true calling: a career in content marketing. So humble, Jess.
Jack SurrallDIGITAL MARKETING EXECUTIVE
Holder of BANC’s best fact – serving Sam Allardyce and Fergie pie and mash – footy fanatic Jack also serves up the goods across paid, social and CRM too.
Painting, knitting and mosaic-ing in her free time, there’s not a lot Helen can’t turn her hand to. Which is good news for us, as she’s a top designer too!
Fabrice RodrigueNON-EXEC DIRECTOR
Fabrice is an integration and transformation director with 20+ year track record working in top tier management consultancies.
David GascoyneSALES & MARKETING DIRECTOR
David is a professional scuba diver, with over five-thousand logged dives, as well as a fully qualified skydiver. Don’t be surprised if he rocks up fully kitted out to a meeting near you soon!
The newest member of the copywriting team, Daniel's background in journalism and editorial stands him in good stead for marketing output.
Chris BalmePRODUCTION LEAD
The closest thing BANC has to a talisman, Chris’ near 10-year tenure with us pales only in comparison to his real crowning achievement: beating Harry Styles at 10 Pin Bowling.
Catherine TanseySENIOR CONTENT MARKETING EXECUTIVE
Meeting the Queen at age 5, Tansey’s been unphased by everything else ever since. Case in point: being first to do karaoke on her first day at BANC.
Bella RoebuckDIGITAL PR & SOCIAL MEDIA EXECUTIVE
BANC's first dedicated PR & Social Media specialist and first Floridian, Bella moved to the UK in 2018 and joined our lovely team in late 2023.
