Gwen Kotschy, Head of People commented:

We refined our recruitment process this year and it’s great to see this paying off and to be welcoming five brilliant additions to the team.  Grand Visual has great heritage in nurturing Junior talent, some of whom are now our longest standing members of the team. I’m thrilled that 3 of our most recent hires are for Junior positions! And on that note, we’re not done with recruitment yet! Please take a look here at our most recent Junior positions currently open in the Creative team…


Digital OOH production and creative technology company, Grand Visual, has hired David Bowry, who joins as production director, and Ben Clissen, who starts as senior producer, both will be working out of the London office.

Bowry started his career in the gaming-industry, lead producing original content for Sony Playstation. From there he went to Guerrilla Games and then on to Disney Interactive, before he co-founded games studio Noodlfoot, pioneering motion-based gaming and mobile content for Nintendo and Sony PlayStation. Most recently Bowry was with The Marketing Store managing digital content production for companies such as McDonald’s, Adidas and Carlsberg.

Bowry reports in to Ben Putland, COO of Grand Visual. He takes over the day to day running of the production studio following Putland’s dual appointment as managing director to Grand Visual’s off-shoot ad-tech business QDOT, earlier this year. Bowry will oversee all production output from the UK and US offices and manage the international production team.

Also bolstering the production team is senior producer Ben Clissen, who will be scoping and managing projects and continuing to maintain Grand Visual’s reputation for delivering scalable and ground-breaking digital OOH work. Originally from Belgium, Clissen spent over 8 years as a program manager at Microsoft, with stints in Belgium and London, before joining Mode Media in London, and most recently worked at Initial Rewards where he was responsible for the creation, development, and launch of custom advertising campaigns.

Neil Morris, founder and CEO at Grand Visual, commented:

“I’m delighted to have Bowry and Clissen onboard. With their strong technical and gaming backgrounds they are ideally placed to reinforce Grand Visual’s already broad-based skill set, and help us to steer clients and partners through the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. This is about creating depth and breadth of quality across a diverse digital landscape so that we can continue to innovate in this space.”

David Bowry, added:

“I am thrilled to be joining the Grand Visual team. Digital OOH is at an exciting juncture. It’s a medium that cannot be pigeon holed. It’s experiential, ambient, responsive, interactive, social, and integrated across digital and mobile channels. I look forward to continuing to push the creative boundaries as the medium evolves from static branding canvas to responsive, connected, interactive, power-house.”

Grand Visual has bolstered its line-up with two promotions and three new hires as it continues its expansion plans this year. Ric Albert has been made Digital Director and Tim Last will take on the role of Account Director. Both positions are designed to provide Grand Visual’s clients with an increased level of service in line with the incredible growth in the medium.

Ric, previously Motion Graphics Director, will continue to push excellence in the creative output of the company, through technique leadership and the nurturing of talent, while maintaining and developing pitch creative and supporting the account management and sales teams.

Tim, who joined as our Senior Producer three years ago, now takes on responsibility for building client relationships with key agencies whilst providing strategic programme direction and delivery.

New starters are Giles Osborne and Thomas Stimson who join as Producers, and Joe Brooks, who joins as Motion Graphics Designer.

Neil Morris, Founder of Grand Visual said:

“An exciting new year is upon us and these updates to Grand Visual’s structure reflect the company’s continued growth and development which in turn reflect the growth of the DOOH medium. The restructuring of our team will ensure that we offer brilliant day-to-day service and ensure the delivery of excellent work for our clients.”
