Mel Arrow Chief Strategy Officer
Back in 2005, I joined BMB as its fourth founder. The agency had no clients, no office and no kettle. Through luck, graft and talent (in that order), we took the company to Agency of the Year within three years. Today BMB has somewhere upwards of 5 kettles. Several of them work.

Gavin joined BMB as Head of Finance. Having experience in numerous industries including Agriculture, Financial Services & Property Gavin found his calling in Marketing Communications, which he has been in for 15 years.
