OUR TEAM

We’re a team of over 40 dazzling ladies and gentlemen, but here are nine and a half of Collider‘s head honchos.

Chief Executive Officer

Anton Jerges

Anton first cut his teeth in the industry in 1991 with international event agency Firbank Kempster. Six years later Anton recognised a client need for a more integrated approach to creative deployment and started his first integrated agency in 1997. Seven years later, Anton wanted a fresh challenge and started Collider in 2003.

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.

Head of Strategy

Charlotte Bunyan

Charlotte is a strategist with a talent for making the complex simple. Her eclectic career path has spanned creative, integrated, branding and experiential to produce award-winning work. She thrives on variety, creative challenges and frequent cups of tea. For one so easy-going she is surprisingly competitive, underestimate her in a pub quiz at your peril.

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 Search

Adam Richards

Adam began his search marketing career off the back of two failed attempts to become a pro snowboarder, he left the safely groomed pistes of the French Alps to take on the proverbial black run that is Search, in 2009.
At Collider, Adam combines the power of search marketing with a holistic view of the full marketing mix.

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.

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.

Spirit Animal

Gary THE PUG

Gary has over a years experience sitting in reception. He's a dog of few words and infinite wisdom.
