I've worked with some brilliant people over the years, and some have liked working with me, too! View more of my recommendations here.
SENIOR ACCOUNT DIRECTOR, AKQA
I managed Jack during his time with AKQA as an Editorial Lead for the Call of Duty international social channels and found him to be an absolute pleasure to work with. Jack was hardworking, focused and thoughtful in all aspects of his role. Never afraid to get stuck into the work, Jack was a real asset to the team and clients who truly valued his opinion and strategic thought.
As a team member, Jack was a universally liked member of the team. Always willing to help out others on the team in anyway he could, Jack was instrumental in helping build a strong team dynamic on the Activision account at AKQA. I hope in future I get the chance to work with Jack again.
HEAD OF SOCIAL MEDIA AND DIGITAL MARKETING, ENDEMOL SHINE UK
Jack worked in my team as a Digital Content Producer at Endemol Shine UK. He's a very capable and enthusiastic team member who always takes the time to do a job well and to help out his colleagues. His organisational skills are immense - I only ever had to ask Jack to do something once.
He's a strong writer and comes up with creative ideas for digital assets and campaigns. It was a shame to see him go!
XBOX PRODUCER, MICROSOFT
I worked with Jack for just over a year at Microsoft as his manager. He was a pleasure to work with and always demonstrated great innovation, dedication and commitment to the role. He collaborated extremely effectively with stakeholders both in EMEA and in global teams and was always extremely positive and effective at managing his time. He based areas of focus on their ROI and has a passion for the games industry.
I would love to work with him again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
HEAD OF CONTENT, ROVI (NOW KNOWN AS TIVO)
Jack worked with me on launching MuzeGames UK - a datafeed service of new/pre-release UK video games, plus all recent back catalogue titles. Within only a few months it was clear that Jack would be quite capable of successfully managing the entire process himself - liaising with publishers, collating and optimising incoming data/images, writing copy, etc.
Over the ensuing years up to the end of 2014, Jack worked on extending/developing the scope of the service further, usually on his own initiative. Jack took ownership of this work and delivered with the utmost efficiency and professionalism. The continuing success of the service is entirely due to his tireless hard-work and vision
