Gary Arnold & Neil Ritchie - Snr Team, incredibly proactive and fun. They understand tech, content and TV. Their book is intelligent and surprising.
Gary and Neil started at BBH in 2010 and moved to M&C after 4 years, but only stayed 2 years as their ECD left. They took a role at Leagas to work with some of their old CD's, but left shortly after to go freelance late 2016. Their book is full of great stuff, both for charities and clients alike. They have a great sense of humour and engage with audiences across the spectre. At BBH they did great work for Audi, Virgin and Bernardo's. At M&C they did great work for TFL and Matalan. Recently they made the funny "Can't be arsed party" to help get younger people to vote.
