TO GROW BUSINESS
With Urbane, you will find a committed, talented team that likes to get to the heart of the matter. We think that in an ever more complicated world, simplicity is invariably the answer whatever the question might be. We go beyond collaboration. We believe great insight and ideas can come from anywhere, so we embrace our client and are very happy to become part of their team. We build relationships and an environment that is both challenging and inspiring.
Our senior partners don’t just turn up for the pitch and then disappear into thin air once the work begins. We are actively involved at every stage because they love what we do and want clients to receive the level of service they deserve. We’ve worked on some global brands as well as smaller local businesses. Our approach and dedication to the task are the same, regardless of the size of the business or budget. Most importantly, we’re ego-free and love enjoy working with clients to achieve outstanding results.
KEY TEAM MEMBERS
Andy has held senior positions at JWT and DDB. He has also worked for brand owner Arcadia. His career has covered many brands and market sectors. But most notably he worked on the re-launch of Burberry, has worked on Rimmel and more recently was part of the team that won TRESemmé globally.
He’s passionate about photography and film and has a flare for a good script. In his spare-time he’s usually found with a camera in his hands or bestowing the virtues of Welsh rugby.
Pete is a super experienced and strategically savvy creative director. He has worked at large agencies such as RAPP and his credentials in Travel, Property and Business Services are probably second to none.
Pete is keen that our work generates response and doesn’t believe that strategic and tactical communication should be mutually exclusive. “If you can’t track it, don’t do it.”
In his spare-time Pete is an extreme marathon runner and thinks nothing of running across the Sahara or over mountain ranges. When he’s not doing crazy things with his legs, he’s a very keen Manchester City fan.
Mandy has worked with Andy and Pete for more years than they care to mention. She has worked at Urbane since it started, and worked with Andy on various projects even before that. She brings years of client and project management experience, and in the words of Andy and Pete, ‘there’s nobody who is more organised, with an extraordinary ability to get things done.’ She brings the ‘yin’ to the creative ‘yang.’
Mandy has worked in many market sectors such as beauty, fashion, healthcare and property. Before that, she lived and worked in Australia as a Marketing Manager at VW. She has incredible energy and attention to detail that Urbane could not do without.
