About Kinase

Kinase was established in 2010 by Richard Brooks and Chris Dillabough as a specialist digital performance agency and consultancy focusing on multichannel retailers in the UK.

Now we’ve grown to a team of over 35 digital marketing experts based in London providing Paid Search, Social, Shopping, Video & Display management to clients in retail, travel and service sectors worldwide. Kinase is a Premier Google Partner.

The Directors

Richard has worked in digital marketing for 2 decades and has always loved helping companies to capitalise as the industry landscape develops. After graduating with a Masters in Biochemistry from the University of Oxford in 2002 he joined figleaves.com managing the then new PPC channel. He expanded his experience at eCommera, leading the search department and working with various stalwarts of the high street, before founding Kinase in 2010. At home he is power-levelling his children’s board gaming skills.

The Account Directors

Edmund specialises in cross-channel strategy, helping retailers join up their marketing with data to find new customers. He also loves karaoke – it starts with ‘Shallow’ and ends with ‘It’s all coming back to me now.’

Edmund Hardy

Account Director

James brings his expertise and fresh analytical perspective to bear on large retail accounts, joining up the data and connecting it to business strategy goals. Loves energy drinks, hates pivot tables (too inflexible), loves fried chicken. Go figure.

James Monaghan

Account Director

Amin is at the forefront of a ‘Research Online Purchase Offline’ strategy, helping retailers unlock the full value of their marketing investment across multiple channels. He’s our reigning, three time, undisputed ping pong champ.

Evelyn Davies

Account Director

Leanne has worked in digital marketing for nine years. Her expertise at Kinase lies in growing paid social for top retail clients, proving that it can deliver performance KPIs. She grew up in South Africa, between the sea and the mountains, but is now to be found criss-crossing London in search of glamour and fine eating, and tending to Fatty, her near-stationary cat.

Leanne Yates

Account Director

Andy has a strong grounding across verticals, including Finance, Education, Travel and Retail. He brings his experience to bear on driving strategy in partnership with some of our highest profile accounts. Andy balances his success in the professional realm with the perennial disappointment of being a Tottenham fan in his spare time.
