Nathan is incredibly passionate about every aspect of the digital experience, and digs deep to gain greater knowledge of this ever-changing industry, both academically and in practice.

Lani Beaven
Digital Marketing Account Director

Value to the Room

Lani's personable and enthusiastic approach to life is reflected in what she brings to Zimple, day in, day out. Yes, she's organised, a great communicator and never leaves a her to-do list unfinished at the end of the day. But, as with any incredible account manager, she has a unique balance of professionalism, attentiveness and personableness to keep both the team and the clients consistently considered and on the same page. There is always an emphasis on achieving the very best for client businesses, our company and her own personal growth. 

You can always count on Lani to bring quick wit, her distinct and infectious laugh and a no-holds-barred tell-it-as-it-is presence to the office. (She's also responsible for 98% of all team nicknames...).

Jess Lantry
Senior Account Manager

Jess is a strategic thinker and communicator, with years of valuable experience that contribute to the uniquely attentive service our clients receive from her. She is incredibly passionate about the projects she works on, and that enthusiasm is contagious to everyone else involved. She is too humble to believe anything we write here, but displays her quiet, determined confidence when delivering successful outcomes and supporting both the team and the client.

Tim Busby
Assets Account Director

Tim is a creative industry pro with a quick wit and sharp mind. He thrives in collaborative environments, working to get the best out of the Zimple team at all times. Calm and personable under pressure, he can multi-task, problem solve and prioritise (nifty both at work and at home with two little ones!). He is passionate about the creative process, and although a stickler for procedure, gets a kick out of being flexible and adapting solutions to fit the demands of various projects. Experienced in managing creative and studio teams in agency and client side, print, content, video and digital production, he's an asset to the Zimple team.

No hurdle is big enough to ruffle her feathers; there's always a solution and a manageable way to get there that works for everyone involved.

Glenn Cooper
Head of Digital Marketing

Glenn’s humble, effective and dedicated approach to leadership of the Digital Marketing team, and his long experience and strong work ethic (he has never had a sick day!) make him the backbone of our DM offering. His calm and thoughtful approach to problem solving resolves even the trickiest issue with the greatest possible outcome. He brings knowledge, wisdom and calm to each room he enters, and is dedicated to supporting his team to fulfil the professional growth and the growth of client business.

Sarah Kane
Account Manager

Sarah is pure joy. No hyperbolic positivity, just a joy to work with and for. From ensuring client needs are understood by all, supporting the team to deliver on goals, to being a listening ear to anyone who needs it, she’s a gold class human. She retains the perfect combination of project management ability, incredible communication skills and marketing expertise, she brings a whole lotta value to the table (including an MBA).

Tenille is a dynamic event and marketing manager with over 15+ years of experience managing high profile festivals, business and media conference and events in competitive environments. She brings a wealth of knowledge to the Zimple team, delivering her strengths in digital marketing and business development. The only thing to pull Tenille's head out of the digital strategy space are her adorable pups (whose image remains our top performing socials post...).

Sam Prater
Digital Marketing Specialist

Sam is the genius behind our SEO service, working closely with our Head of Digital Marketing, Glenn. He never demands an audience, but he’ll command one when there’s something truly valuable to say. The tallest and the youngest in the office, he sees the world in a unique and fresh way that inspires the whole team (he’s nifty for getting stuff from the top shelf, too). His knowledge far outweighs his years and it shows up in the results he delivers for clients. He also has a decent list of shows to binge if you ask him.

Rikki’s experience in, and passion for, storytelling has made her a valuable addition to our Digital Marketing team. Her content lens is framed by the how and why of human interaction and behaviour, giving her the ability to provide unique, valuable and genuine copy. She applies the same approach to garnering content as she does life; always lending a listening ear, keenly focused on needs awareness and forever seeking a new perspective. 

Kate Asimus
Social Media Specialist

Kate is our sharp, witty, social media pocket rocket. Absolutely no one can craft a holistic, value-full social media strategy like her. She is an undeniable asset to client communications, sharing her knowledge in a mindful, clear way that is never confusing or ‘industry’. Her unwavering solutions-based thinking keeps us all on track, and her positive attitude is an immediate injection of joy to anyone around her. We’re not just shooting off compliments here, you’ll see what we mean when you meet her. She’s also a collector of eclectic second hand mugs, that she may or may not gift you.

Ana Sutter
Art Director

Value to a Room

Ana is a unique hybrid of creative and savvy business-mindedness. Her UI/UX design is not just about a beautiful looking page (although, they all are), but also how client's digital design can work for bottom-line outcomes. Her attitude and thoughtful and thorough approach to design ensures every last detail on a project is taken care, and is always ready with much welcome office snacks, keeping the team going on deadlines!

Dillon McIntosh
UI/UX Designer

Dillon’s super power is in his ability to translate a client’s desired aesthetic and feel of a website into a tangible design focused on user experience and front-end design. His unique and creative perspective along with his knowledge of digital and latest technological developments, allows clients to trust their website is going to stand out in their industry. His quick wit is always a welcome spark in the office, too!

Ryan Stuart
UI/UX Designer

We won’t lie, it wasn’t easy to describe Ryan without using the words ‘smooth operator’. Mostly because he possesses all the cool elements and absolutely none of the smug smarmy it can be associated with. In fact, we can hear him laughing awkwardly that we’d ever call him that. In any case, we’re sticking with it. Adding to this, he’s an incredibly talented designer with a unique knack for being intuitive with his UX/UI designs, even if it means crafting out-of-the-box solutions. He also serves his intense coffee knowledge with a side of sharp wit.

Adrian Stein
Developer

Adrian is focused, professional and hard working. His ability to think of issues before they arise and question them in order to come up with a solution for the client is second to none. He brings a relaxed and positive attitude to all interactions, is a problem-solver who tackles all challenges with a good sense of humour and is dedicated to achieving the client's outcome. Adrian is also the office's bringer of snacks, rum and football highlights! 

Sam Leighton
Developer

Sam’s incredible intelligence and ability to apply logic, reason and solutions (and a few Survivor stats) with clarity is a unique and valuable asset to have. His attitude and willingness to learn and experience, with his dedication a thoughtful and thorough approach all jobs ensures every last detail is taken care of from beginning to end of development.  No one can effectively and accurately get through a job as efficiently and timely as Sam.

Renae Bennett
Accounts Receivable

Value to the Room

Renae’s genuine caring and interested approach to team relationship building has her firmly placed as our Zen mother.
