Another couple of plucky new recruits have joined the ranks – Adam Campbell becomes our latest Account Executive, whilst Chris Davies joins the digital team as a Front End Developer. 

And as has become custom, we bombarded them with questions the moment they stepped in the door. First up is Adam:

What are you most looking forward to about working at DC?

I’m most looking forward to starting my career in the advertising industry surrounded by an uber-talented group of people, whilst working on projects of huge proportion.

What’s your favourite fact that you know?

The Queen is a trained mechanic.

What are the best and worst purchases you’ve ever made?

The best has to be my Netflix subscription, as it allowed me to watch Paddington and Paddington 2. The worst is also my Netflix subscription, as it led to me watching ‘Urge’ (anyone considering watching this film, I urge you not to).

Which celebrity would you love to hang out with and why?

Bob Mortimer – arguably the funniest person of all time and generally just a good Boro lad.

What goal do you think humanity is not focused on enough?

Humanity and, more specifically, Middlesbrough Football Club should be more focused on the goal at the Riverside Stadium (maybe if they bag a few more goals this season we might get promoted).

And over to Chris:

What are you most looking forward to about working at DC?

The challenge and new experiences it will bring. I’ve never been in a business this big before, so meeting lots of new people is definitely a plus.

Which fictional character would be the most interesting to meet in real life?

The most interesting would be the Doctor from Doctor Who. Thousands of years old, and has a ship that can travel through time and space? He’d definitely have some interesting stories.

If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?

Are we alone in the universe? (Can you tell I’m a sci-fi nerd yet?)

What’s the most interesting building you have ever seen or been in?

I would have to say the Rockefeller Center in NYC, a beautiful art deco building. You get a great view of the city, and the fountain and plaza out front are iconic.

Do you have a saying or motto you live by? If so, why do you live by it and where did you hear it from?

“Be excellent to each other!”  from the Wyld Stallyns themselves, Bill & Ted. If we were all nicer to each other, the world would be a better place.
