Our Team

People do business with people, we all know that. Get to know us a little and meet our growing team of strategic, creative and digital super minds.

Continually growing, always evolving. That’s Better.

Mark Easby

Managing Director

Mark is a business winning, tea drinking, innovation seeking genius. He’s the Better boss, the motivator, the enthusiast that pushes our services to new and outstanding levels. If it ain’t ahead of the game, it ain’t good enough. Oh, and he enjoys ‘Fish and Chip Fridays’ almost as much as the projects he works on.

Mark is a very passionate ‘Teessider’ who is committed to supporting a range of entrepreneurial and enterprise activities across the region, from mentoring and training through to start up support, including being a trustee of High Tide Foundation.

Paul Bell

Client Services Director

What can we say, Paul’s one of a kind. He’s the man that doesn’t sleep, delivering the kind of service to clients that most people could only dream of.

Paul makes sure that clients’ brand messaging is heard loud and clear by their audience, no messing about. We rely on him as much as he relies on a proper Yorkshire brew.

Adam Gatenby

Digital Director

A digital whizz with a creative mind is a rare thing to find. Adam makes our unique service possible with extensive knowledge in digital technology. He’s the guy that knows everything, and he’s literally re-designing the digital tools we use on a daily basis to make them bigger, better, stronger. If he’s not running marathons he’s saving the (digital) world.

John Taylor

Creative Director

John brings real value to our team, with a wealth of over 15 years experience working with high profile brands in the advertising and branding world. Working his creative magic for many London agencies including POKE, Mother, Saatchi & Saatchi and Mullen Lowe, he knows exactly what works.

A film buff and the man behind ‘Film the Blanks’, he’s used to pushing boundaries in design every single day. Oh, he’s also won awards from CIPR and BIMA.

Charlotte Linton

Client Services Executive

Charlotte is a super clever, super sweet, inexplicably organised member of the family and we couldn’t function without her. She manages the studio to levels of efficiency that are seemingly impossible. Charlotte ensures the happiness of every client, every minute of every day. She loves all things pretty, and just never stops smiling! Wonderful.

Josh Middleditch

Lead Designer

Josh brings a creative edge to the team, not to mention a serious amount of cool. It’s mostly to do with his diverse and award winning portfolio, but there’s also something to be said of his impeccable taste in music. From brand building to identity design, we’re always desperate to see what Josh’s next big idea is going to be. Watch this space.

Matthew Goodyear

Junior Designer

After passing through Cleveland College of Art and Design with flying colours, Matthew dived straight into the world of work with the Better crew. With a positive outlook and a laid back demeanour, his only complaint is his chair doesn’t recline any further.

Complimenting his relaxed personality is his focused attitude and driving ambition. Speaking of driving, Matthew’s also a bit of a car fanatic and passionate Boro fan. His eagerness to learn and keen eye for design means he’s a perfect fit for our team.

Alex Higgins

Senior Web Developer

Alex keeps our digital team on their toes with his encyclopedic knowledge and first class skills in all things web. He’s worked for a number of national businesses and organisations, including one that’s top, top secret! While he’s not working away on the latest developments, tools and sites for our range of clients, he can be found running tough mudders, watching ice hockey and catching the latest films.

Steven Roberts

Lead Front End Developer

Steven is a hugely talented guy who makes up part of the digital team, delivering top class websites to a range of clients. Ensuring that the websites that we design and develop look good and are fully functional, Steven really enjoys exploring new ideas to create something a little different. As well as being spectacularly great at web design, he also enjoys playing the guitar in his spare time, and loves gaming!

Nathan Cockerill

Web Developer

Nathan is a super enthusiastic individual that lives and breathes digital. With a multitude of experience within the IT industry working with local councils and schools, he is a very knowledgable young man with a bucket load of aspiration and passion. As junior web developer he currently works on some of our key client accounts, whilst also learning from the rest of the digital team, building and perfecting his skills.

Nathan Connor

Junior Web Developer

Nathan brings a youthful enthusiasm to our team, which coupled with his desire to learn and aspirational attitude make him a perfect fit for our digital team. As a self taught tech guru, he loves programming and spending hours successfully completing a range of projects and tasks. As well that, Nathan also has a passion for gaming and in the past has even ran and managed his own servers.

James Bolton

Digital Marketing Executive

With an NCTJ diploma to his name and extensive experience working in retail content marketing and eCommerce management for an independent fashion company, James fits perfectly into our Digital Marketing team.

With a keen interest in music, football and all things Teesside, his eclectic flair and passion, fused with the latest digital trends, help to create engaging content for a range of clients.

Rachael Boyle

Junior Digital Marketing Executive

With a degree in psychology and masters in marketing, Rachael brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the Digital team. Her keen eye for detail coupled with strong writing skills and marketing brain, make her the ideal digital marketer to deliver engaging content and killer social media.

In her spare time, Rachael loves travelling and long walks with her dog in the North Yorkshire Moors. She also has a love of crime books and a good murder mystery documentary or two. Best not get on the wrong side of her then.

Helen Watson

Finance Administrator

Helen helps us watch the pennies by leading and managing our financial management systems. She works fast and furiously to keep everything in check. She’s got it covered.
