Founder, managing director and mustachioed face of the business. Before Wow, Simon headed up Sales at the Kent Messenger, and brings the same loud-mouthed braggadocio to agency life. Simon is possessed of a keen understanding of the media world, heaps of affability, an over-helping of self-confidence and a misguided belief that he knows a thing or two about rugby and cricket.
Emma co-founded The Wow Factory with Simon after joining him from the KM. She has been the leading creative mastermind behind much of Wow's best-looking and most memorable work. She liaises directly with many of our clients: a true rarity for Creative Directors among modern agencies.

When Alexander discovered we were looking for a copywriter, his strategy was apparently just to lurk until we got so accustomed to his considerable presence that people started asking him to make the tea. Bossman Simon physically threw him out twice, but then Alex started sleeping on the doorstep until we let him back in. Luckily, it turns out Alex can actually string ten words together pretty well, so we hired him!
Molly is our resident security consultant. Her enthusiasm for her job varies day-to-day, but she can never be accused of being lax when it comes to monitoring the activities of the postman. Often she will be the other side of the house when she hears the door open, and by the time she arrives to see off the stranger they'll already be sitting down and halfway through a meeting. Despite her yipping and yapping, though, it's never long before she makes herself at home on the sofa to listen in and receive her compensation in belly rubs.
