Fearless Faces

Great people make great work. But it’s not just about recruiting the finest people around, it’s about keeping them and that’s where our mojo comes in. It’s hard to pin down exactly what our mojo ‘is’ because it’s lots of things. It’s embracing diversity, nurturing talent, mucking in and making Taxi Studio a special place to be. But most of all ... it’s about loving coming to work every day.

The Team


Brian Mansfield

Armed with a massive, nimble brain and a marketing degree from Lancaster University, Brian's career got off to a (literal) flying start when he joined British Airways' graduate scheme in 1992.

After six years Brian escaped the dark side, moving first into strategic marketing consultancy before deciding freelancing looked like much more fun. Spending eight years as a brand strategy and innovation guru, he then packed up and moved to Australia in 2006 to serve time as managing director of a Sydney design agency.

In the process, Brian helped shape the fortunes of (among others) BT, Guinness, Hilton Hotels, Kraft, Lego, Nestlé, Orange and Pret A Manger.

Since joining us in 2009 he's continued to help reposition many of the world's most famous consumer brands, trotting the globe to deliver workshops on NPD, innovation and all manner of brand topics.

With strategic skills as impressive as Brian's, it would be selfish of us to keep him to ourselves. So when hospice charity, Dorothy House, invited him to join their Board of Trustees in the same year the coveted DBA also asked Brian to sit on their Board of Directors, Taxi gladly gave him two green lights and a massive pat on the back.

Brian's all about the journey, fiercely protecting our mojo and making Taxi Studio a bubbling place to be. Meanwhile, his passion for coaching and mentoring ensures Team Taxi always performs at the top of its game.

Talking of teams – according to Brian, his most fearless award-winners are his champion under-13's rugby squad.

(Controversial, we think.)
