Creative Director

Simon Gittings

Creative Director

If he could, Simon would start every meeting by shouting 'say no to dull'. It’s very easy to take the safe route but it’s only by challenging expectations that great results can be achieved.

As creative director, Simon leads clients and our in-house teams through the creative process, to get the ideal mix of design, messaging, words and media to effectively tell clients' unique stories. He pushes everyone to engage their audience and to communicate effectively: it’s not just about providing information and there is nothing worse than a vast, infrequently updated site with little substance.

Outside of work, Simon is passionate about climbing but these days his kids go along too. He also likes bikes – with and without engines – and reading.

Neil Roberts

Managing Director, Europe

In his role as managing director for Europe, Neil is responsible for the Investis business in DACH, NORDIC and Southern European regions. If he’s not directly supporting the sales effort, his attention is focused on training and building skills and knowledge across the business.

Neil has worked in a variety of roles since joining the company 15 years ago, with a focus on business development. Along the way he also established the client strategy team, which has been instrumental in helping our clients maximise the effectiveness of their digital communications.

He’s experienced at building and managing high performing teams and loves the challenge that comes with the successful integration of companies with different technologies, processes, cultures and in most cases different languages – he is currently learning Swedish.

When he’s not working, his time is mainly spent entertaining his four boys – swimming, climbing, camping, walking – staying outdoors as much as possible. When he can escape he loves a long swim in Tooting Bec Lido or a lazy stroll around Richmond Park.
