our team…

We’re proud that every Excited by Digital project so far has developed through our network, through word of mouth, or from recommendations from those we’ve worked with. 

The way we build our expert team is the same – simply put, we work with people we know can do the job, because we’ve worked with them before. This way we can be confident that we have the right qualities and expertise to get the job done. 

We’re always keen to talk to new expert associates, so if you’re truly excited by what you do, and think that you have something that you could offer to our clients and the Excited by Digital team, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.

Paul Thomas – Director and strategist

‘Excited By Digital’ perfectly describes Paul’s enthusiasm for all things tech. From his early days working in record shops and championing the bands he loved, he is, at every opportunity, a vocal advocate of new and exploratory ideas.

His career has been tethered by his passion for communications and technology, from his early days working in a web agency, to developing his knowledge in roles with RSA and Grant Thornton, where he pioneered their use of social media as a powerful communications tool for the firm’s accountants and employees.

Paul is now Excited by Digital’s Director and chief strategist and loves nothing more than rolling up his sleeves and getting stuck into our clients’ challenges and projects.
