Darren Long

Client Services Director

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


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.
