Managing Director

Tom is Managing Director of independent creative agency, Above+Beyond, working with the likes of Subway, Amazon and Pilgrims Choice.
Torn between a life in law or rock and roll, Tom found something that combined both and got a job in advertising. He cut his teeth at BBH on the Levi’s and British Airways accounts, before embarking upon a career that has taken him across the full gamut of integrated and award-winning creativity for a diverse range of clients including PlayStation, Guinness, MasterCard, Unilever (Lynx) and EA Games, at agencies including Wieden+Kennedy, Mother, AMVBBDO and McCann London.
