There isn’t a ‘Captivate’ type oF person, because we don’t box ourselves in.

Our strength comes from combining a diverse mix of experiences,
perspectives and skills. Here are a few of the people who contribute to our eclectic mix.


The Captivate

Senior team

Chloe Ellis

CEO

Chloe is a huge fan of insight, logic and rationale, but only when they inform and support inspirational creativity. Her integrated background enables her to think beyond channel silos, so no matter what the discipline and whether it be business, brand, marketing or campaign; strategy and planning are her passions (along with netball, boxing and cheese!)

Darren Smith

Growth & innovation director

Darren thrives on understanding and solving client’s business challenges in today’s hyper-connected world. His focus is growth and innovation driven by an entrepreneurial approach to agency development. Oh, and he collects Northern Soul records!

Andy Southcott

Group finance director

Andrew brings ten years’ experience of working in and around marketing services. A keen cyclist, Andrew keeps the wheels turning at the group when it comes to all things, financial, legal and IT. Finance departments can often be associated with saying “no”, but Andrew and his team work hard to find ways to say YES.

Paul Seligman

Chairman

Despite having worked in both marketing departments and agencies, Paul describes himself as ‘a consumer at heart’ as if you don’t understand and resonate with the consumer, you’re dead! Starting in brand roles, he set up and sold a communications agency before running a WPP group agency and then starting the Captivate Group. Apart from what he calls his ‘obvious’ interests of wine, food and skiing, he is passionate about India, tribal art and history.
