Team Leader- Online Media Operations

Alistair is driven, intelligent and skilled. He is able to inspire his team to go beyond their creative and technical limits without burning them out. He has an exceptional sense of design and a great eye for quality and he is able to write code and communicate on a level with his developers. This results in his team running as an enthusiastic, efficient and cohesive unit. Throw in a great sense of humour and it also makes him a real pleasure to work with.

Alistair is a very talented professional who combines technical, creative and management skills. He is very well organised, always pushes the boundaries to achieve best possible results. His creative thinking always encourages members of his team to explore new territories, to accomplish even the most crazy ideas. Having Alistair on board is something that I would highly recommend to everyone who prioritises quality and innovative thinking.
