Tony Humberstone Managing Director & Online Marketing Consultant I started working in advertising back in the days of directories at BT Phonebooks and found my passion for working with SME’s and local businesses. As the internet came along I started selling Google adwords and have been in the industry for 6 years.

I still get a buzz out of delivering great results to all of our clients and delivering a good service.

I am registered with Google adwords and have my level 1 & 2 qualifications, so I still enjoy getting in to the nitty gritty of a campaign.

Enrique Schmidt Head of SEO I am qualified in marketing by achieving a degree a few years ago, I then went on to gain an honours degree in digital marketing, why? Because I am passionate about marketing, but even more so, all things digital!

I love to play around with HTML code, PHP and thinking “outside the box” for companies to promote their business.

PPC Stars is my second experience working within a Marketing Agency, something which I thoroughly enjoy; with all the challenges. At PPC Stars, the aim is to always ensure our clients rank the best, without giving in to unorthodox methods, you’d be surprised just how many websites are ranking via “spammy” links!

With me on board at PPC Stars, you can relax knowing that we do this job by following SEO best practices. I really enjoy working with my team, (who are great), especially brain busting new link building ideas together to improve ranking positions and quality web traffic.

Real ale is another of my passions along with tree climbing, riding motor bikes and my main ambition is to become qualified at paragliding! So I look forward to optimising your website soon!

Duncan Harvey PPC Campaign Manager I have been in marketing and business development for the past 12 years, gathering experience working with clients throughout a broad range of markets, sectors and environments. I spent time in the recruitment sector working with top 10 legal firms , FTSE 100 financial companies and blue chip organisations. I started and ran an ambient media marketing company.

Chloe Albuery Senior Content Marketing Executive My background has been in events management which I studied for 2 years in Brighton.

This involved all aspects of planning and running a variety of events from outdoor music gigs to weddings, to running an entire Brighton Fringe venue. 

It was in this time that I found my love for marketing and design, after having to market, launch and promote the events I had planned. This was how I found an interest in social media, as it soon became the primary method of marketing these events. 

Since finishing the course, I decided I wanted to find an apprenticeship in digital marketing so I could further my skill set and knowledge of the industry, and this is when I found PPC Stars.

Since I’ve started, I have now also moved into designing print artwork for our clients, and running social media PPC campaigns.

Kieran Layton SEO Executive I recently graduated from Godalming college having studied IT, Photography, History of Art and Media. Through my studies I found an interest in digital art which caused me to learn certain software such as Photoshop and 3D software including Blender and Cinema 4D.

Once I had finished college I became full time bar tender at my local pub where I had been working part time during my college years. I enjoyed the social aspect of that work and meeting new people every day but soon found myself feeling a change in career and felt I should start looking for jobs in the digital marketing sector as it is where my passion and interest lay.

Here I gained a knowledge of sales, banking and customer service. As well as qualifications within the banking industry.

Spotty Client Liaison Officer My name is Spotty. I am a Jack Russell X. I was rescued from RSPCA Brighton.

I am employed at PPC Stars as Client Liaison Officer. Part of my role is to entertain the staff. I am much loved by everyone. Sometimes I whine and cry but generally I am well behaved.

In the summer I patrol the central courtyard and perform meet and greet duties although I draw the line at the postman. Sometimes I jump on Tony’s sofa and get told off. I find this funny as I think he actually believes he is in charge, but we know the real truth!
