MEET THE TEAM

THE OPTIX FAMILY

Our team are our greatest asset. Each person’s unique skill set and experiences brings something different to the table and helps us to cover all bases when it comes to supporting our clients. We work closely with each other and most projects involve people from across the business working together in multidisciplinary teams.

The digital landscape changes constantly so training and personal development is important for us. Many of the team have been with us for years and have grown and developed with the agency. Others bring new perspectives and challenge old ways of thinking. Everyone has a part to play in making Optix a dynamic agency and a great place to work.
