Honey

Honey

Destroyer of Stress Balls

Honey just loves a stress ball, tickles and high fives. As our office companion, Honey is in charge of making sure all members of the team get to have a little play time. She is also know to negotiate a few deals and take the odd Skype call!

Sammy-Jo Kendall-Smith

Sammy works closely with her account manager to provide day-to-day logistical support. She graduated from Worcester University with a degree in creative digital media and still counts photography as one of her hobbies. Sammy is convinced she’s really unlucky but we count ourselves lucky to have her in our team!

Richard Moseley

Richard Moseley

Director

A Swansea Metropolitan graduate, Richard has been with BAM for over 10 years. As well as being rather nifty on a computer, he knows his way around a balance sheet – he also manages our finance department. His favourite things in life are computers, lego and eating cheese (in no particular order!).

Ian Pain

Ian Pain

Director

Ian leads our business development team and is responsible for managing relationships with our clients. With two young children he doesn’t get much spare time, but when he does he manages to fill it with running marathons! His aim it to break the 4 hour mark – it makes us tired just thinking about it!

Kirsty Pritchard

Kirsty Pritchard
