AV Executive

Who we are

We exist because we saw a gap in the market. A gap between ideas and measurement. Anyone can have a good idea, but they don’t necessarily know how to measure it. Conversely, just because you can measure things, it’s no guarantee you can have good ideas. Well, we do both.

We’re the free-thinking media agency for brands with big plans. We enhance reach, reputation, and revenue by giving every client the best in Heart, Art and Science, which means going the extra mile to understand their world and collaborating to create market-leading strategies, anchored in intelligent data. And because we’re independent, we enjoy the freedom to work with clients we love, in ways that work best for both of us. Because great relationships drive better results.

We’re a team of creative thinkers, professional doers and clever data people, all obsessed with delivering measurable outcomes. With a team of over 90 media specialists and growing, The Kite Factory has seen exponential growth, celebrated award-winning work, and welcomed multiple new clients in recent years, including WhiteClaw, Crisis, Skin+Me, Anthony Nolan and Sekonda. We are also proud to be ranked as one of Campaign’s Best Places to Work, as well as holding IPA Platinum status for our dedication to learning and development.
