We’re Growing, Introducing The Filter Senior Management Team

This year has been an exciting time for our team here at Filter, we’ve grown considerably since the beginning of the year and we’ve welcomed some talented individuals to our agency.

The Filter team has grown considerably since the beginning of the year and recently, we have appointed a new Senior Management Team to help us achieve our goals and objectives across the business.

Our CEO, Oliver Morrison and our CTO, Paul Halfpenny launched Filter back in 2016 after working together for many years. As the agency landscape was changing, they set out to create a different kind of agency to focus on the ‘art of the possible’.

Since then, the Filter team have worked with a wide range of clients across the globe on a variety of innovative digital projects. Read the full launch story here.

As our agency grows, so does our talented team of industry experts! Let us introduce you to some familiar and not-so familiar faces from the Filter team.

Rachel joined the business in September, bringing a wealth of experience when it comes to building strong client relationships and delivering digital solutions.

When asked about her decision to join the team, Rachel said: “You rarely find an agency that does deliver what they say on the tin!

The opportunity in a remote-first model of working allows me access to talented colleagues and clients all over the country and beyond, which was also very exciting”.
