Oliver Rowe

Founder and Planning Director

“I love business communication because it exercises the creative and strategic parts of my brain in equal measure.  My job at Belong is to work closely with our clients to help define their communication briefs and ensure we deliver outstanding creative work for them.

Having grown up as film and book geek, I think I was always destined for a career that involved storytelling.  After gaining a degree in Film & Video, and nine years as a marketing exec in the film industry, I joined the creative agency BDA in 2005 and fell in love with the diverse and ever-changing world of corporate comms. 

During my seven years at BDA I worked closely with communication leaders at some of the UK’s biggest brands, and my team's work won more than 30 industry awards. 

Founding Belong was an opportunity to create a new kind of agency, and it's still the best decision I ever made.

I continue to nourish my love of film thanks to my BAFTA membership, and have been very proud to serve for six years as a Trustee of the charity Stonewall.”
