Part of our culture is to get involved in the communities in which we operate. In Cape Town our offices are around the corner from District Six – an area rich in history with many great stories to tell. Similarly, in Johannesburg, our Constantia Kloof premises place us in the heart of the West Rand – a long under-serviced part of the City of Gold.
We live for our people and our communities – and love that “little bit of crazy” that makes the average day just that much more interesting. . . as you can see by some of our people featured below.
It may look like Brandon was being attacked by dark forces from another world when this video was shot but, in reality, that’s just one of many faces he pulls in a working day. Like the rest of the management team he offers a combination of solid expertise and crazy – what you need at 2AM when great ideas are at a premium.
Conveniently absent on the day of our shoot, Dean Rajh-Gopaul leads NJIN Agency’s strategic services. A lot smarter than his “stand in” cut-out pic looks, Dean has worked on large accounts that include Samsung, BMW, Vodacom, Investec, Red Square and Liquid Telecoms. He loves chicken wings and all things comics.
Larger than life in character, ability, track-record and physical appearance, Ryan offers a wealth of experience and expertise through-the-line. A lover or South African rock music, X-games and his beard, Ryan brings a unique perspective to client campaigns – with RUM the motto he lives by. Be “Relevant. Unique. Memorable.”
Not as mild and placid as his video would suggest, Clinton has a deep understanding of client requirements especially (but not exclusive) to companies in the Automotive, Engineering, Manufacturing and related industries. He supports WP rugby and Richelieu brandy – in no particular order.
Mildly obsessed with Johnny Depp and Jared Leto, Gwen’s experience ranges from working in the South African film and music industries through to crafting exquisite work for clients such as The Parlotones, ITEC, Cape Cobras and E3 Life. Affectionately referred to as G-WEN, she embodies the pulse of our design studio.
Don’t be fooled by the “boy next door” innocence of his profile video, Mario can mix it with industry heavyweights when he has to . . . and we are not only referring to his tequila-drinking prowess. Guiding both paid-social media advertising and content creation across key accounts, Mario has established himself as a real “go to” guy.
Lilly’s taste in music is as varied as her expertise in Digital marketing disciplines. While officially playing a senior role in the Google Campaign management team, she is also keenly interested in SEO and Social Media Marketing. Her understanding of each component contributes to better campaign builds and more satisfied clients. Lilly loves “Chappies” – obviously.
Gugu is the proverbial “silent assassin”. Do not be fooled by her penchant for “the quiet approach”, underneath that measured exterior is a quality-driven, detail-focused campaign manager that digs deep into the data to deliver strong campaign performance. A proud mother of one she brings a welcome sense of calm to the studio.
This part-time law student cracks the studio whip, keeping the louder lads in check as she drives client campaigns in partnership with our head of traffic, Lisa (more about her later). Andrea stars in our office video (coming soon) and is meticulous in everything she does. She is strangely obsessed with Chicken Mayo sandwiches and Coca-Cola.
As mentioned, NJIN Agency has offices in CT and JHB. People you will soon hear of include Tim, Dennis, Jess, Lisa, Rayhaan and a few other twinkle-toed members of the NJIN team – contributing PR, Brand Strategy, Business Analytics, Augmented and Virtual Reality services to our unique solutions mix.
