Darren Long

Client Services Director

Hi, my name is Darren and I am ThinkBDA’s Production Director.

Darren-Long

My main responsibility is working alongside our clients and our team to develop effective campaigns whilst ensuring the service we provide to clients is to the highest possible standard.

I started off my career as a designer, and after completing a design degree in 1999, I worked at a leading design agency, where I stayed for 6 years. It was a steep learning curve, and very different from my university days, but I was able to gain all the necessary skills needed to work in a fast-paced agency. I joined bda in 2005 and have seen the company grow from strength to strength. As time went on, I became more and more involved with the management side of the business, which I really enjoyed, and became Production Manager in 2011, Production Director in 2014, before changing to become client focussed and Client Services Director in 2015.

Outside of work I am a keen cyclist and can either be found mountain biking in Woburn Woods, or clocking up the miles on the road. The rest of my time I spend with my young family, which keeps me really busy.

I love technology. It fascinates me! But, I don’t always understand how it works, but I really enjoy trying to find out. Whenever I get some free time, I try to do some drawing and painting. This is a pastime I have had since I was a child – I find it tremendously relaxing!

If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done.
