Meet the BAM Team!

Bound by a dynamic and passionate team, BAM is a niche, values driven agency with great vision.

The BAM culture lives and breathes the company’s values, which run seamlessly throughout the business; passion, integrity and responsibility, continuous learning, good business practice and respect.

Being recognised for hard work and success is extremely important to us, both as a celebration of the team’s achievements and a benchmark of our continued pursuit of excellence. Over the last few years we have been recognised as one of the Best Places To Work and our campaigns have reached the finals of CIM Marketing Excellence Awards.

It’s the team’s passion and drive for delivering success that produces outstanding results for clients and maintains strong partnerships, continuously delivering value and quality.

So let’s meet the team…

Tim Bodenham

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

Kirsty provides strategic and administrative support to our Managing Director with a broad knowledge of every aspect of the business. When she isn’t organising Tim and everyone else at BAM, she loves to cook and is a clubbercise fanatic... an exercise class with glow sticks and club classic tunes, what's not to love?

Ben leads the sales function of the business which includes the Media Partnership division. Ben works with national and global brands to demonstrate the value of the student market producing results driven campaigns.
