Tom Downing, Technical Director at Freestyle

Starting life as a creative developer after graduating from Liverpool University, he formed a Digital agency with a close friend with zero business acumen (back in the pre-iPhone days of Flash!).3 years later, he merged it with a larger creative campaign agency Loaf where as a Director, he spent the next 10 years developing the digital side of that agency. He created an engineering team from scratch, ran pitches for global businesses, and delivered technical products for brands such as Grand National (the largest horse race festival in the world), Grosvenor’s Liverpool ONE, and BAE Systems. He was responsible for unlocking new revenue opportunities by applying a technology lens to how they solved brand experiences for clients. From there he joined the Digital innovation agency Freestyle as Tech Director and a Leadership team member, responsible for growth targets through technology.
