The talent behind activ Marketing Group

Managing Director Katie

Katie has worked in marketing for over 17 years. After working within in-house marketing teams in a variety of international, B2B and B2C roles, in 2014 Katie decided to branch out into her own business with activ as a franchisee to form Bull Solutions in South Wales with clients across the UK.

Today, Katie has become activ marketing group’s owner and Managing Director following a successful acquisition in January 2021 and continues to drive the long-standing business success of activ and Bull Solutions together with our head office team and franchisees.

Tom has specialized in creating fully functional websites on WordPress on since 2014 working on a vast range of products that has allowed him to gather a wealth of knowledge and experience across a number of markets.

Tom has a great passion for clean design that captures those viewing the site and absorbs them in, exceptional UX allowing ease of use by both the user and the client, and working with clients helping bringing their ideas to life and reducing their pain points creating a more efficient workflow.
