The old saying, 'small is beautiful' couldn't be any closer to the truth for Select First and in its heart lies the efforts of three individuals whose penchant for hard work balanced by a customer focused philosophy have got it to where the agency is today.
With no posh receptions, break out zones, or an ever-changing gaggle of account 'handlers', you know who and what you are getting with Select First. You can be confident that these three experts will develop a full understanding of your company's strategies, structure and philosophy. In fact, give it time and Select First will become a natural extension of your business unit, not just an outsourced add-on.
Myles Hazebroek MCIPR, Managing Director
Part of Select First since 2002, Myles took over the agency from the retiring owners and added a touch of zing. The result has been an agency that has gone from strength to strength. With a background in the holiday industry, Myles often finds common ground with journalists and he is certainly a vivacious personality, which reflects his enthusiasm and commitment behind his desk. Married with two young children, Myles spends a lot of his time on his hands and knees, but likes to flex his calves with a run or his biceps with a game of golf when he gets the chance.
Tom Bourne, Creative Director
Tom came along some four years later to take a little heat off Myles and to expand the creative side of the Select First operation. As the editor-in-chief of specialist flooring related publishing house for some seven years previously, Tom has a knowledge that puts him in a good position to liaise with editors and journalists on the finer points. His flair for writing and eye for design means he gets all the geeky parts of the job. He is the first to admit his love of spreadsheets and numbers is limited, but that's where Myles steps in. Tom's big love in life is riding his road bike, his cats Harry and Paris and the slightly grumpy but very large rabbit called Claude. Oh yes, his long suffering girlfriend too.
Charlotte Chandler, Junior PR Executive
Joining the team in April 2012, Charlotte possesses the enthusiasm and eagerness one would expect from a recent graduate. Having gained a 2.1 in English Literature from the University of Southampton in 2011, Charlotte worked as a PR & Marketing assistant in-house for an Italian furniture company soon after graduating. With a passion for social media, writing and a sunny disposition, Charlotte is working on the whole spectrum of accounts at Select First. Outside of work Charlotte enjoys eating out rather too regularly and can often be found buried in a book.
