Victoria EllisBusiness Leader
Victoria joins 101 from BD Network where she cut her agency teeth working on a range of categories including Fashion, Technology and FMCG. She is Scottish despite her lack of accent and during off days can be found with her nose in a good book and scouring the shops for bargains for her new flat.

Luke JudlinCreative Producer
Luke joined 101 after freelancing in different areas of production. He’s a bit of a film buff and drops things frequently. Currently sporting a moustache as he’s unable to grow a full beard.

Jack Willoughby & Serhan AsimCreatives
Jack and Serhan’s eyes first met across a crowded room at the School of Communication Arts 2.0. Serhan had previously spent 3 years at university studying creative advertising, whilst Jack’s first job in advertising was in 1990, when, for a short stint he was the Pampers baby.
Sandie joined 101 after two years at VCCP leading the strategy on a mix of clients ranging from beer to premium insurance. Prior to that, Sandie was client side at Cadbury and was responsible for Cadbury Dairy Milk, Buttons and Cadbury’s Olympic sponsorship (not all at the same time). Shoe obsessive and major fan of eating out, Sandie has a pretty broad knowledge of where to get a good meal in London (and a good pair of heels).
Joe joined 101 in November 2014 after hearing a rumour that they had a working N64 console in the office. Before 101 he was at Publicis and then VCCP, working on a range of categories including FMCG, tourism and telecoms. Outside of work he enjoys eating and tweaking his fantasy football team. Occasionally at the same time.

Matt joined 101 after spending two years exploring various jobs in carpentry, interior design, web design and photography. He enjoyed the ride but is happy to have gravitated back to what he loves best. He still enjoys making furniture, as well as going to gigs and collecting records.
Joe BruceCreative Director
Joe often wakes up in cold sweats, worrying that it’s all just been a dream and he’s actually spent the last 7 years working as a security guard for an amusement arcade. Then he realises that it’s not a dream and he really does get paid to get up every morning and write silly ideas for a living.
Greg is a copywriter. After spending 15 years freelancing, writing books and making things on the Internet, he realised that he should probably get a job.
Alex PembertonCreative Producer
Alex joined 101 under slight duress (she normally likes to run free with the other lancers). She has worked in a number of boutique agencies across digital and content, and even did some stints in fashion. Having done a maths degree, she’s a geek at heart. She likes doing the cryptic crossword and harping on about her grandparents who worked at Bletchley Park.
Fresh out of college, Alice assists with the smooth running of the office and the even smoother playlist selections.
Ben joined 101 after 8 years of thinking about stuff and colouring in for innocent. He is probably most widely known for his starring role as Jim Lovejoy, in the hit 1990s detective/antiquary series, ‘Lovejoy’.
PA to the partners, Sarah joined 101 in 2015. Lover of the arts, she can’t get enough of the theatre and can eat her weight in pasta.

Maurice PfisterAccount Director
Maurice joined 101 in July 2014 having previously spent time at CP+B and W+K where he worked on a variety of brands and sectors ranging from gambling to chocolate. Having only ever worked for American companies he now enjoys not saying ‘hell yeah’ and ‘amazing’ all the time.
Katie ColhounAccount Manager
Katie is from the almost unpronounceable province of Saskatchewan. An unabashed fan of pub quizzes and being on any of the bridges over the Thames, Katie previously looked after client services at Stinkdigital and Decoded. She longs to one day trade in her unusual Canadian accent for a delicate sounding English one. Sadly for her (and judging from her current attempts), this is likely to prove an impossible dream…

Joined 101 after working with magazines. Having moved to London from Manchester, he now spends most of his time riding his bike past places he used to see on TV. He claims to speak French & Spanish, but it is yet to be proven.
