We scale, grow & build digital brands.

We’re founders and highly-skilled brand operators eager to join ambitious teams in-house and help scale high-potential brands across all pillars - from brand to paid media, CRO to influencers.

Scaling smart, with data as our superpower.

Our in-house data science lab (led by The Professor aka Dan) connects the dots in our brands' CRM and sales data to accelerate growth.

Operating as a new-era group of brands.

We bring category-leading brands under one metaphorical roof, and use the power of the group to spark new ideas, products, and campaigns.

JAMES CONNELLY
COFOUNDER

Sometimes, I wonder what life without the internet would be like. For one, I wouldn’t have built my last company, Fetch, into a global £250m agency that became the digital growth partner to some of the world’s greatest internet companies including Apple, Facebook, Microsoft and eBay. Or maybe I’d still be installing in-car entertainment systems - my first job when I was 18. The biggest loss, however, would be the inability to start every Friday singing "It's Friday then, it's Saturday Sunday, what". If you know, you know.

DAN WILSON
CHIEF DATA OFFICER

I’ve spent 15 years helping digital businesses accelerate growth through data and technology. My previous work includes 80% of FAANG, about 50% of FTSE. When not working, I used to run marathons across Europe as a way to explore the cities. One of my finest moments was turning up late for a Barcelona marathon, with only one sock, trying to eat a bowl of cold porridge with a broken comb.

SOPHIE TOMLINSON
EA AND OPS

"In the past, a typical day at work for me included sampling whisky for breakfast (whilst setting up the New York offices for a design studio), and rubbing shoulders with supermodels (whilst supporting VP’s with their day-to-day operations). At Charlie Oscar Group, I work with the team to help them bring their A-game, whether that’s advising against alcohol for breakfast (been there, not a good idea), or supporting James and Elliot with their day-to-day."

KRUPA PATEL
DATA SCIENTIST

"As a born and bred Londoner, you’ll usually find me exploring the best spots in town for drinks and food, but when work calls, you’ll find me crunching on data and building the best dashboards in town. I’ve spent the last five years working in media agencies, where I met Dan, Charlie Oscar’s CDO. Leaving a lasting impression (I was his favourite), Dan invited me to join Charlie Oscar’s Data Science Lab, where today I equip brands with the data-led insight they need to breakthrough."

BEN MCINTOSH
HEAD OF GROWTH

“I was once a full-time cyclist racing across Belgium, Australia, NZ, and France. It was only when I broke my wrist for the second time that I decided it was time to shift gears and pursue growth marketing. So for the past six years, instead of scaling roads, I’ve scaled brands for some of the most exciting ecomm companies including The Hut Group, Iceland, and now, Charlie Oscar.”

SASHA JEPPESEN
SENIOR MARKETING AND CONTENT MANAGER

“Hailing from sunny Australia, I started my 9-5 life as a brand strategist and creative, where briefs involved anything from writing scripts for Gigi Hadid to creating pop-ups for D2C unicorns like Away. After 3 years of agency life, I caught the “in-house bug” (and a craving for colder weather). So naturally, I headed to London's cloudy shores and buzzing startup scene, where for the last 2 years I've helped D2C brands scale with breakthrough brand and content strategies.”

what we believe

The kind of
people
you want

to

have a drink

build a brand with.

We lay the foundations for brilliant brands to break through.
We're talking internet-first companies with solid economics, fanatical communities and differentiated products.

Magical things happen when you get the right people in the room.
We keep the destination in sight, but we do this with a love for the journey. People power brands and the having-fun part is just as important as the money-making part. It's why we're a group. We go further together than we do apart.

And it’s not just about growth. It’s also about stewardship.
Commerce shapes society. Shifts culture. As the people behind the scenes, we have a responsibility to do more good than we do harm. Even when it’s uncomfortable.

Join the fold.

The Nike’s, L'Oréal's, and IKEA’s of tomorrow are going to be digitally native, and their paths to scale will look radically different to those that came before them.
