TEAM

We bring together a unique collection of experts to create, implement, manage and troubleshoot.

We're a mixed bag of expert marketers, creatives, musos and techies, each with the smarts in their own area.

We're 45 strong (ish) and we're located across three different continents.

And we all get along just fine, thank you.

Andy Pitman

Boss man, advocate of digital for brands and bucket list film producer

He co-founded Kaleidovision in his garage in 1992 to film concerts, and what a ride it’s been since. Fast forward, our head honcho has relentlessly created a truly integrated and creative agency to offer a smarter, faster and more cost-savvy way to help revive, reposition and grow brands. He has collected a totally brilliant team of experts – a real red-hot mix of talent, skills and tech – to deliver extraordinary music and digital for brands, again and again.

We think we’re lucky to have him: he’s a rare mix of creative thinking, marketing prowess, tech know-how and has a wealth of experience creating and managing new brands and businesses. He can tackle anything that’s thrown at him: crafting high level corporate film scripts or coming up with entrepreneurial creative business solutions; developing a new tech product or producing visionary ideas in the edit suite; and knitting together intricate, joined-up strategies so some of the world’s best brands can weave their magic.

He’s super hands-on and massively passionate about what we do, and has worked with a roll-call of brands who really know their stuff: the BBC and Channel 4 through Aspria, Hunter and Diageo to the Hyatt and InterContinental hotels. His knowledge of the industry is ridiculously vast.

When he’s not inspiring us to push the digital boat out, he’s skiing, sailing or being educated in the ways of the world by his six-year-old. If you need to know how cave bears survived in the Italian Alps, he’s your man.

Paul Buckthorpe

Barn-storming tech wiz

Paul’s skills are widespread and generally awesome, spanning organisation, delivery, project and operations management through to a brilliant client-facing, commercial attitude, in-depth knowledge of coding and an inspiring vision for our tech. In a former life, he founded a successful internet agency and broadband service provider. Meaning he understands the technical requirements as well as the business needs of each client. He’s a totally safe pair of hands. In fact, he’s a qualified football coach for adoring U11s and U9s at the weekends, when he’s not converting his barn into a Grand Designs-inspired masterpiece.

Aisha Nanor

Fierce culture maven, creative branding hustler and curator of independent style

She’s really on it. Music, fashion, style… er, life.

Not only does Aisha head up our music/digital crew, but she uses her instinctive understanding of music and aesthetic, meaningful cultural intel and credibility to add incomparable edge to leading brands. She creatively directs, guns for new business, and she’s a total pro at translating a brand’s narrative through music and button-pressing digital concepts that shake stuff up.

Music is THE big idea for her – her childhood, writing, curating and consulting for the music industry. And her unshakable energy is infectious. If you want to know what's up, she's the woman to ask. Our clients respect her opinion on matters musical and cultural. She’s connected, pro-women’s sports and a fully paid-up Mama.

She’s straight-talking, super-smart, bundles of fun and effortlessly on it.

Well, her son is called Abe Spike…

Amy Henaghan

Marketing and brand supremo, process queen, cake maker

With a Marketing degree with Psychology, Amy really gets it. She has an incredible intuitive approach to branding, creative, consumers and contemporary culture that’s a real touchstone for our agency, understanding the mix from every stakeholder’s point of view – and a real flair for social media. She’s a master at liaising with creatives and techies to make sure that everyone is in tune, and inspires us all by her ability to make things happen… exactly the way they should. And you have to admire someone who spends the morning whipping up cupcakes then shouts her head off at Chelsea FC all afternoon.

Nick Soons

Bearded music addict and connoisseur

Our in-house music master is an unashamed hipster who gets what’s going down, and brings his love for all things music across a wide variety of genres from underground and disco-inspired to funk. He worked for six years in hospitality, so understands the industry from the inside out, giving him an in-depth insight into creating the right bespoke playlist for an independent restaurant right up to nation-wide companies. He’s a footwear hoarder – shoes, trainers, sneakers, you name it, he’s edging triple figures – whose gargantuan beard has been known to stop people in the street. Probably checking if there is a family of windrushes living in it. Really.

Sam Fry

Moving picture master

He came to us direct from a Motion Graphics and Visual Effects course at the University of Glamorgan, bringing bushels of creative thinking and conceptualising in his toolbox. His motion graphic skills are brilliant, with an at-birth ability to translate brand identities and personality into video, plus a real expertise in illustrations and vector animation. He’s totally in tune with social media and how people access it, as well as anything that involves cool hair – gigs and festivals, illustrators and designers, watering holes and pop-up galleries. Fry by name, fry by nature: he’s the ultimate foodie, sniffing out the newest, hippest eating places in London.

Jessica Southcott

Marketing Wonder Woman

Recently returned from backpacking around Southeast Asia, Jessica has flung herself into crafting clever marketing strategies for our clients with aplomb. Her creativity, energy and application are already legendary, and her background in events management gives her a real hands-on understanding of how marketing works. Her energy probably comes from her uncompromising nutrition and fitness regime: she’s certainly the healthiest person we’ve ever met. When she’s not wolfing down an organic almond coffee, she’s doing pilates or yoga – or working towards a qualification in food nutrition. And that means more biscuits for the rest of us.

Stefan Christopher

Lights, camera, action man

He’s worked for six years in 2D and 3D motion graphics and video production, crafting ad campaigns and corporate videos for Intel, Playmobil, PC World and Heinz in Singapore, Dubai, Germany and the US.

What drives him? The noble pursuit of finding new ways to do things and putting his own twist on the creativity. He’s interested in anything to do with film and the production process, and has even made his own trilogy of sci-fi shorts called ‘The Deadline’… which ironically missed the competition deadline. He’s done a major shoot with footballer-with-hairdo David Ginola, tried his hand as a painter and decorator, and is currently on a quest to find the best burger in the UK. Now, that’s an all-rounder.

Paul Damian

Visionary creative with his eye on the target

Paul is one of our visual gurus, as good at giving direction and coming up with concepts as he is directing 3D motion graphics animation or taking shots. His short films have been officially selected for Cannes and Locarno, and we think he’s one of the best video editors around. He constantly astounds us with his brilliant, out-of-the-box ideas that push visual storytelling to the limit. You can tell by his haircut and headwear that he lives and breathes art-house cinema and experimental exhibitions. And his great hidden talent? He’s a table tennis master and a champion archer.

Alice Murphy

The rhythm is going to get you

Alice could never be called deskbound. She studied dance at London Studio Centre and taught technique to rising movers. She took off to Australia and travelled around for two years in a campervan, then conquered New Zealand, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Burma. She’s a calming influence in the office when we get frazzled, as she meditates and makes dreamcatchers for happy slumber. Today she offers high-kicking admin support in everything we do. A star turn.

Andrew Lytollis

Slam-dunk branding boffin

Business guru Andrew set up our Dubai office in 2014 to grow our group presence in the region. From managing the music identity and customer experience of some of the world’s most respected brands in the Middle East, he returns to the UK now as our sister agency Music Concierge’s Global Sales Director, with an in-depth understanding of the luxury retail and hospitality arenas.

His winning attitude to life reflects his lifelong passion: basketball. As a teen, he played for the England National Team, before teaching in South Africa in his gap year. He’s still known to dribble with the best of them.

Peter Day

Bringer of business, builder of brands

A born entrepreneur with a CV that’s as long as a Ken Follett novel. Strategic creative planning, international sales, branding, marketing communications, product development, project management… he understands it all. Peter has the golden touch when it comes to making client contacts and bringing in new business for us. How does he do it? We have no idea. But he does. He lives with his family in a little village by the beach in Hong Kong, travelling widely to spread the news of how Kaleidovision can help build brands using digital and music. Allegedly, his mother was in a well known Scottish country dance band, but that hasn’t held him back…

Andrea Gliddon

Rollergirl

She’s designed anything and everything for the world of music with a keen eye for simplicity in design and composition, and superb attention to detail – and it takes in everything from CD covers ad brochures to branding, marketing and corporate stuff. She’s been with us around 15 years, so her knowledge of brands and design is amazing. She’s an art freak, taking in every exhibition, show and event she can get to. When she’s not at her screen, she’s on four wheels… rollerskating her way through scary obstacle events such as Spartan and Nuclear Blackout.

Nick Spratt

Chat show host in the making

Our Helpdesk guru has amazing people skills that run from advising, problem solving and a bit of counseling thrown in. He’s been with us around eight years, so his knowledge of the company, products and systems is encyclopedia-like. His attention to detail and quick wit are legendary at Kaleidovision Towers, and his great claim to fame is that he used to work for Cirque de Soleil in Australia… but don’t ask him to do anything trapeze-related.

Fi Clarkson

Glastonbury champ

Fi is one of our headphone-wearing brigade who keeps sites and systems on the crest of relevant sounds. She’s right on the curve of current music, festivals and moshpits, but her broad tastes run all the way from indie and funk to 90s rock ballads (we weren’t supposed to say that) helping her pinpoint the right sounds for brands, and she’s been doing it for more than a decade. In her downtime, she’s usually cooking, baking and eating – and her claim to respect is that she’s clocked up 11 Glastonburys, more than anyone else in the agency.

Steve Ho

A man always upping his game

Steve has qualifications coming out of his hard drive, with both a BSc and a PhD in Computer Science. He was an esteemed Senior research fellow in University of Hertfordshire in the field of Artificial Intelligence & Robotics, designing fully automated homes to help people with disabilities live independently and travelling the world delivering lectures about it.

He's fascinated by gadgetry and new technologies, as well as trying to get his golf to single handicap level (though he admits it may be a long shot).

One thing he's finding it hard to fathom at the moment: parenting, with daughters aged two and four running rings around him.

Mark Hoffman

Master troubleshooter in anyone’s language

He’s worked through from the Southern to the Northern Hemisphere developing software for banks, insurance and distribution companies, and is the troubleshooting ranger for our company’s software. The Hoff is a machine who understands our software and how it integrates like no one else, having worked on every area from creating web-based interfaces to maintaining scheduling software for our for graphics and music systems. 
Oh, and he can update you in one of the three languages he speaks fluently.

Sami Fahmy

Tech boffin, kitchen wizard

If your IT has hit problems, Sami will get you through. He’s a master problem-shooter who keeps his eagle eyes on the servers, hardware and infrastructure across all our client sites. His mission: to ensure smooth-running functionality. His idea of fun: toying with Linux boot issues and hardware upgrades… things the rest of us have long accepted that we will never understand. But most surprising is that he worked in catering in a previous life, and once managed a birthday function for Vinnie Jones.

Phil Thomas

Cooking up tech support

Livewire Philip is our secret weapon. Analysing and resolving faults across our products, he supports customers like no other. In fact, he not only studied IT, but also motorsports mechanics, is founder of a gaming community and competes in video game tournaments, so his knowledge covers many bases.

He’s deeply entrenched in the music scene, playing drums and singing in three bands. And in what little spare time he gets, he co-runs a bakery whose chocolate brownies are mini miracles. Just ask around the people licking their fingers in the KV office.

Bert Bristow

China in your hand

Bert started out as a professional games tester for Square Enix in Shanghai, before working at the British Embassy in Beijing. His ten years in the Far East have paid off: he speaks Mandarin, French and English to a standard where he can guide our Far Eastern clients expertly through tech problems in whichever language they choose.

His passion for all things Chinese knows no bounds. A degree in Chinese studies, a passion for obscure Chinese historical facts and his own brand of Eastern philosophy-meets-social commentary. We really need to get him his own TV show.

To top it all off he’s also an expert at test automation and turns his hand to software development, loves hiking in Tibet and Corsica, cooking Sichuan cuisine, sailing and playing rugby.

Yuki Leung

Songbird at the cutting edge

Yuki is a well-followed food and lifestyle blogger in her native Hong Kong, pinpointing the hippest, newest, hottest restaurants, bars and retail concepts in town, as well as performing as a singer.

She’s also a skilled business developer who helps define and deliver the Kaleidovision message in the Far East, with expertise in building lasting relationships with clients, and an in-depth understanding of hospitality and retail markets.

In her spare time – although how does she find any? – she writes for magazines, cooks and bakes, create handicrafts and art, and travels the world.

Mat Taylor

Slave to the rhythm

Mat is the real McCoy: a fully paid-up musical who drums for Flux Pavilion’s live band and played South West Four on Clapham Common. He started at indie record label Circus Records, then moved to educational magazine TES as social media manager before coming to Kaleidovision.

Wirth a degree from Brighton Institute of Modern Music and National Diploma in Music Practice and Performance, his technical and theoretical knowledge of making music is second to none, as well as his knowledge of music trivia. Go on, try him. Also, he once played a gig in a mental asylum in Holland, so he should fit in perfectly here…
