OUR TEAM

We’re a team of over thirty dazzling ladies and gentlemen, but here are eight of Collider’s head honchos.

Chief Executive Officer

Anton Jerges

He's a Wisborough Wizard and the (not so) proud owner of a tattoo that he refuses to show anyone.... But he’s more than willing to share his 25 years’ experience working in integrated comms, the last 19 of which have been as a shareholder and director of Collider. He’s collaborated with clients such as Bentley Motors, BT, Samsung, Sony and Land Securities.

Managing Director

Richard French

Richard’s helped some of the world’s biggest brands build effective and award-winning communications, including Honda, British Gas, BT, Unilever, Petits Filous, Virgin, DFS, Costa, Sainsbury’s, Liberté, Frubes, and Ben & Jerry’s (try saying them all in one breath). He’s even managed to squeeze in launching and leading agencies across almost every sector.

Executive Creative Director

Del Manning

He’s been here since day one as a founder of Collider, setting up the first office in the sunny climes of Guildford. Del has over 30 years of experience in branding, advertising, marketing and experiential activation, across a range of vertical sectors. You might even be lucky enough to meet his puppy, Koda if you swing by our office!

Operations Director

Denise Wroe

Also known affectionately around the office as “The Fixer”, Denise has over 25 years’ experience within integrated agencies. Originally specialising in film and video production, Denise moved into Operations working for both large and small agencies, and has been with Collider for over 5 years.

Strategy Director

Gavin Mackie

With an accent that’s a mix of Canadian, Kiwi and a little bit of British thrown in, there’s no mistaking Gavin’s laugh when you hear it across the studio. This global wanderer has experience ranging from multi-national campaigns to new starts, and a career that spans both creative and strategy.

Production Director

Mark Baron

After his formative years as a model in Japan, Mark decided a change of career was in order, and now he has over 10 years’ experience across launch events, festivals, exhibitions, conferences and theatre. With a background in theatrical delivery and a clear understanding of digital interactive deployments, Mark has delivered campaigns across the globe.

Business Development Director

Jamie Hockin

Looking to work with someone who’s straight forward, honest and won’t baffle you with the latest marketing bullsh*t? Jamie’s your man. With 15 years of experience across a range of disciplines and sectors, he has a real disdain for marketing jargon. So reach out and we can have an idea shower on how to get all your ducks in a row.

Head of Technology

James Gardiner

We don’t always understand what comes out of his mouth, but we put that down to his 15 years’ experience working in tech. From brand communications pieces, e-commerce sites, to mobile and social applications and SEO for some of the world’s best-known brands, he’s delivered it all. He also believes in not just using technology for technology's sake.
