Gordon White - Managing Director

A little about Gordon ...

I’m the vintage member of the fatBuzz team, I founded the business back in 1986 – before most of the team were actually born!  So, sometimes they listen to me and sometimes they ignore the ‘old guy’ in the corner, but I do like to think I still have some influence over the direction of the business.

Marion White - Director

A little about Marion...

A Director of fatBuzz, one of my biggest responsibilities is to look after the company’s finances. I’m also, arguably, the most important person in the office, as I’m the one who pays the salaries each month! Haha.

Mary-Julie McNally - Head of Marketing

A little about Mary-Julie...

As Head of Marketing I manage a fantastic team of Account Managers and Marketing Assistants who are responsible for creating and implementing engaging campaigns for our impressive portfolio of clients, which includes brands, companies and products. Working across a broad range of industry sectors means that every day is different and there’s rarely a dull moment in the office! When I’m not working I like going out with friends, eating great food, dragging myself to the gym and pretending I’m good at karaoke.

I love watching documentaries of all kinds but particularly true crime, to the point where I believe I now have what it takes to be a detective – less like Poirot, and more like McNulty from The Wire. However, I would happily settle as any character from the Sopranos.

Kimberley Manderson - Head of Design and Development

A little about Kimberley...

In the office you’ll usually find me making a list, crossing off a list or chasing things on lists. I’m also one for rallying the team together to participate in important events like World Cup sweepstakes and the like.

I then moved up to Glasgow a year later for an agency opportunity and haven’t looked back. I joined fatBuzz in November ’17 and I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead.

John McLellan - Videographer

A little about John McLellan...

As Videographer at fatBuzz if not out on location you will normally find me at my desk, headphones on, trying to find the perfect soundtrack for whatever edit I am working on that day. I love story telling and video is one of the best media to do this. On top of video I can also work in motion graphics and design and at fatBuzz, I get the chance to turn my hand to all of these disciplines.

 

When not in the office you can find me in lots of places, on the golf course or up the top of munros with my camera in summer or on the rugby pitch every Saturday in Autumn & Winter, it all depends on what time of the year.
