Tom and Jim founded Bandstand in the midst of 2009’s crippling recession. Convention decreed that it was the worst possible time to start a business – but Bandstand was never going to be conventional. Tom does everything. Think of him as the Bandstand overlord. As our co-creator, he loves three things – an agency with no boundaries, meeting new people, and mornings.
As a kid, Nik liked the ad breaks more than the programmes themselves, so it was a no-brainer that a few years later he’d find himself in some of London’s most interesting creative agencies. An account man with a creative soul, he’s held senior roles at VCCP, Fallon and Wieden + Kennedy, leading teams for the likes of O2, Nokia and Cadbury’s. He also led 4Creative during their recent refresh of the Channel 4 brand.
With over 35 years in advertising, Jim’s worked with a vast number of global brands, from Ford to Concorde. Originally an Art Director, these days Jim has an insatiable desire to support our clients. As well as account handling, he oversees our operations, charts our course into the future and makes sure we all stay on track.
Brett started out in the world of film, and rather enviably won a couple of international film festival gongs before making the big move into advertising. Since making the switch 10 years ago, he’s been kept busy applying his encyclopaedic knowledge of digital to deliver excellence at the likes of Razorfish, DDB and Bandstand, for clients including McDonald’s, Philips, Hertz and Johnson&Johnson.
