Dave’s an ex-DJ, which is how he met his wife and business partner Hayley. He has a penchant for early Hip-Hop and Northern Soul. He’s a northerner who was raised a stone’s throw from Sheffield, but now has a passion for London life. It is no accident that one of Chief Nation’s main services involves fine wine and the best food from around the world. Chief Wine Officer, created by David & Hayley, is hands down the most popular B2B networking experience on the planet.
Delivery & Customer Success
Adding another northerner to the mix is Laura who moved from the bright lights of Bolton in 2015 to join the Chief Nation team. Laura uses her 15+ years’ experience in events and marketing to drive campaign success and agency growth, working closely with staff, clients and suppliers. Laura is at her happiest on a spin bike and hosting friends and family, she doesn’t like the party to end!
Finance & Operations
Richard has worked for Chief Nation since its early days and has helped it grow from a few people renting spare desks in another company’s office, to the thriving agency it is now. Richard has performed most jobs in the agency but is now the Managing Director responsible for the company’s finances and operations. Richard is a keen jogger and enjoys walks with his dog Cecil, watching box-sets and mixing electronic music of various genres. In better times, Richard enjoys going to see his favourite DJs perform in venues around the world, combining his love of music and travel.
Marketing & Sales
Along with a voice that can carry through most social environments, Craig also brings a touch of (South) African flair to the team. Craig is partial to a dad dance at any Chief Nation social and he is really good at making friends in new cities. A self-proclaimed brand ambassador for Chief Wine Officer, Craig knows little about wines but that doesn’t stop him from sampling as many as possible. Craig has over 15 years’ experience in marketing & technology and looks after the marketing, sales and creative elements for the group.
