Ben

Co-Founder | Relationship Manager | Managing Director

A whizz-kid in sales and business from the 90s-turned Ad Agency Boss-man in the here and now. It’s a natural progression and when you work 1:1 with Ben, you understand why. Ben’s instinct for people and sales (ty very much, daggy sales training circa 1999-2000s) and deeply Entrepreneurial heart made the creation and rapid growth of Enriches what it is today. 

 

He has dabbled in this and tried his hand at that over the years and this has meant being part of as well as kicking off his own ventures. When asked, 8 years ago (for his LinkedIn bio), how he felt about that and what he would say to a fellow Entrepreneur who was just getting started, he saidMy key business advice is to keep looking at the bigger picture. Don’t be ashamed of your mistakes, as this is where the most valuable lessons come from – by accepting those lessons you will quickly see how much more vital to your success they are over your wins”.

 

Ben’s number-crunching, data-loving and extremely (to a fault) logical self is exactly who you want in your corner when it comes to breaking down where your money is going, why and how to optimise it. As he says – numbers are the truth and data can’t lie. 

 

If Ben was a superhero? You’d know him as Benny Legend Journey and only he can tell you why. 

 

Fave fact: Nintendo was founded in 1889

Special skill: Ben is a Bonsai Master (in training)! 🌳

Did you know… Ben was born, bred and corn fed in Canberra, moving to Queensland in 2005.

Jess

Co-Founder | Operations | Campaign Designer

When she’s not writing the processes, finalising procedures and maintaining SOPs (which may or may not include harassing the team about admin), Jess is combining her expert-level understanding of Social Media advertising and natural flair for copy to design client campaigns.  

 

Jess has been a self-confessed ‘Commercial nerd” since forever and thinks she can trace her love affair with ads back to the show “World’s Funniest Commercials” (because #90sKids) and being fully engrossed in it at about age 7! She started her first business at 22 (2022) called e-Admin, an online administrative support service with a Joomla website, business cards and everything! Much professional, very expert. 

 

Jess became a mummy for the first time in November 2021 to Bodhi Marshall, and around that time came off the ‘tools’ in Client Facebook ad accounts for the first time in 7 years and turned her attention to a more overseeing capacity (when she isn’t singing and dancing to keep Master Bodhi entertained). 

 

Her fave app to consume is Instagram Stories, and since her baby Bodhi was born, has become a hard-line advocate for captions in stories (Social Media Managers, take note!).

 

Favourite fact: The egg you were conceived with began in your grandmother’s womb 

Highly admired person, Dead or alive: Eleanor Roosevelt (très féministe for her time!) 

Quote to note: Well it was “and that’s the way the news goes” because I am big Rick and Morty fan but Ben stole it so I’ll say “trust in the saints and little angels” which my Grandmother always used to say.

Daniel

Account Strategist | Google + Search Expert

Daniel is an Enriches OG! He’s been with the Agency since its [very] humble beginning (Like, so humble. We were *so* new that we couldn’t believe our luck when he kept agreeing to work on projects with us!). While studying his Masters in IT on the Gold Coast, he responded to a Gumtree ad one of our first clients had posted [LOL!] and the rest is history. 

 

Daniel loves that the Digital industry is new, fresh and full of potential. He’s driven by reaping what he’s sewn quickly and motivated by a fast pace and plenty of change. 

 

Originally hailing from Canada, you can expect to find Daniel in a new corner of the world at any time but he never misses a team meeting. It’s really no surprise that his special skill is working like an absolute night owl. 

 

Most admired person: His Mum (😍) 

What would he say to 10 yo Daniel: “Put all your money on Apple or Amazon stocks as soon as you can, or buy bitcoin”

If he had the time, money and resources to do anything at all: Spacewalking outside the international space station

Kelvin

Account Manager | Lead Social Strategist 

Kelvin joined the team to assist with Facebook Ad accounts and it was an easy transition to give him the controlling  hand and run his own Facebook Ads show within Enriches. He’s coming to us from Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand (Sweet as!) Lucky for us, he loves the digital marketing world as it provides him with the freedom to balance travel, family and earning a living. 

 

After chasing the snow for 6 years, Kelvin went back to university to finish his degree (at 28, with a baby on the way, working nights to keep the fam going – something he is [rightfully] *incredibly* proud of). Although he started with a Psychology degree, he found the exciting crossover between psychology and marketing; marketing showed the practical application of consumer psychology and Digital Marketing was clearly the next evolution, so Kelvin hopped onboard (lucky us and lucky you). 

 

Kelvin is thrice blessed with his wife Stacey, and little ones Theo and Sadie who often feature in team meetings. 

 

If he had the time, money and resources to do anything at all: Heli skiing in Japan, followed by Onsen (hot pool) and full spread Japanese buffet in a beautiful hotel 

Who does he admire most, dead or alive? “Greg Graffin – Bad Religion lead singer. Has a doctorate, lectures at a top tier university, doesn’t take any shit, been in a genre defining punk band since the mid 80s and still touring. Absolute badass”.

Fun fact about anything: There is a word for throwing someone out of a window – defenestration. 

“the action of throwing someone out of a window.” (we didn’t ask any follow up questions 🙈)

Toni

Content Designer & Community Manager 

Toni marks another spot on the Enriches map, live streaming to Enriches from rural Western Sydney.  Another highly educated and super savvy addition to the team Toni has her Bachelor of Business Marketing and holy smoke, do our clients benefit from her refined and sophisticated touch when it comes to marketing our beloved clients. 

 

Creativity and Strategy keeps her heart in the game – and luckily (for her but also for us) she’s selected to work in an industry that’s forever evolving and producing infinite opportunities to stay close to those passions. A talented content producer and Social Media Community Manager she is, but you’re not likely to hear Toni shouting about it, being the reserved and fastidious achiever she is. With this in mind, it may be no surprise to learn her favourite random fact is that humans are the only animals that blush! 

 

Toni is most proud of watching her daughter grow ‘into a kind human’ (and the world thanks Toni for gifting us with another kind human!) and is a firm believer in the power of branding, authentic storytelling and killer creative – which shows in all she does. 

 

Superhero Name: Golden Captain (no context provided, and so we LOL and wonder)

What would she say to 10yo Toni? You’re not going to be good as something instantly… stick with it, because the journey to getting to good is the most rewarding part.

Fave digi/marketing geek quote? “Marketing is telling the world you’re a rock star. Content Marketing is showing the world you are one.”
