Find out about the faces that make Consider This work:
Michael Pearce, Managing Director
Michael Pearce co-founded Consider This, alongside Paul Taylor in 2003. Michael stays involved, seeing everything from the beginning to the very end. His and Paul's relationship hits the right balance - they both see things from different angles but see things in the same light. They have a deep understanding of what each other wants to see or is thinking about and nothing is ever wrong, but an option to be explored. You never know where that is going to lead.
Often the problem contains the solution - the solution is within the problem. Michael studied at the London College of Printing (which is now known as London College of Communication), one of the top three schools for his field of studies - Graphic, Media and Design. He worked in a European branding retail agency, dealing with clients such as Sephora, Faith, Reebok and Morgan. He then went to a small agency in Park Royal where he met Paul and went on to set up Consider This. He tells us, after that - the rest is history.
Paul Taylor, Managing Director
Paul has been working in marketing for 23yrs, starting as a manager in B2B Direct Marketing, then progressing to an independent marketing consultant. In 2003, he set up Consider This UK with Michael Pearce and together they have created a company that has grown to cover all aspects of the marketing spectrum.
Paul manages the team and liaises with new and existing clients on the development of their marketing strategies. His creative flair and initiative combines with his ability to quickly understand, enhance and facilitate client’s requirements and their targets and goals.
Barbara Rooney, Senior Account Executive
Barbara joined Consider This over ten years ago as an Account Manager and, through her enthusiasm, has worked her way up to her current position as Senior Account Executive. Barbara's primary role is liaising with clients and building new relationships, and is always at hand to provide her expert and experienced advice. Barbara is a whizz at printing; throw any term at her and she can tell you exactly what it means, even if you have zero background knowledge of printing. Her organisational skills are second to none. She also takes her hand to accounting, ensuring that accounts balance out and everything runs smoothly. She works closely with all members of the team to make sure all projects are delivered on time and to the highest quality.
Barbara has 12 years worth of experience in the banking industry. She has also worked for the NHS, an American software company and has extensive experience in customer service, which reflects upon her strong personnel and client communications. Barbara has a great sense of humour and creates a light hearted atmosphere in the office. She is also in charge of disciplinary and often makes tardy members of the office do a number of press ups or sit ups as punishment.
