The importance of a team

On the vast, uncertain waves that every business sails on a daily basis, they have to make sure they are making progress. But how can you make progress if not everyone is working towards the same goal of making it through the unpredictable waves? It cannot be stated enough how important teamwork is when it comes to keeping our business pressing forward, making sure that everyone has the same end goal in mind to help us sail amongst the waves towards success.

By working closely together we encourage the development of new, exciting ideas that will help our clients reach their goals. As well, helping us grow personally by working with some of the best marketers in the industry that come from a wide variety of different backgrounds.

Meet team topclick

Miles Cottrell

Founder & Managing Director

I have been working within digital for the last 20 years. In 2003, noticing the lack of small to medium-sized businesses that were advertising online, I decided to make the jump and go out on my own to found topclick. I quickly realised that businesses tended to falsely view online advertising as either too expensive or solely for larger companies, and thus I set out to confound this stereotype by offering competitive marketing and design services at a cost that could suit businesses of any size.

When I’m not in the office I like playing football, boxing and spending time with friends and family.

Kevin Lopez

Account Director

I lead the account management team and have been working at topclick for the last 8 years. With a wealth of experience in digital, creative and website development for leading UK businesses and global brands, I’m your man in the know! I work closely with clients to help them meet their digital goals and reactive day to day needs, as well as being their main point of contact for new and existing projects.

Brandon Fryer

Operations Manager

Through my in-depth knowledge of the marketing industry and extensive experience within digital service process management, I help to deliver effective strategies that assist with our mission of driving unique and impactful experiences for our clients and the topclick team.

Outside of work, I have a keen interest in cars and keeping fit.

Richard Ellis

Senior PPC Account Manager

I have worked in digital since joining Thomson Directories in January 2006. Over the last 15 years, I have moved through the digital landscape from website performance monitoring, cross-browser, and stress testing, through to email marketing and then onto newer channel marketing, such as Google Ads, Bing Ads, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. This has enabled me to have different kinds of business conversations with advertisers, ones that make a difference in results, through complete omni-channel advertising.

I pride myself on professional, business conversations that “move the needle” and I love seeing changes through the implementation and new strategies. In my spare time, I coach under 10’s football, enjoy a kick about myself, and spending time with friends and family.

Mel Farmer

Head of Social

I have nearly 10 years’ experience in digital marketing, but with a special interest in social media. My wide range of experience working with small businesses right through to global brands has given me invaluable insight into a vast array of industries. By collaborating closely with the team I’m able to deliver our clients an integrated and effective approach to digital.

In my life outside of the office, and when I’m not busy keeping my toddler entertained, I enjoy catching up with friends and family, as well as taking walks in nature. Above all else, I have a deep passion for travelling and interiors.

Chris Bland

Digital Marketing Executive

I am the youngest member of the topclick team, having graduated from university in 2021. I studied Business and Management while undertaking my own freelance social media marketing, which led to an array of exciting agency and brand collaborations. My role as a Digital Marketing Executive sees me assisting the PPC and SEO departments, as well as managing the internal social media channels.

Outside of work, I am a competitive figure skater of 14 years with both national and international medals to show for it. I also have a passion for fashion and enjoy immersing myself in the latest social media trends.

Sarah Couzens

HR & Accounts Manager

I have a varied background, starting out as a PA within administration. I recently went back to college part time, studying to achieve my CIPD qualification. I now manage and oversee HR policies, programs and practices within topclick. In addition to my core duties, I maintain accounts payable, receivables and monthly billing.

I enjoy spending my free time with my family; my two daughters keep me very busy! I also love walking and have recently started boxing.
