WE BUILT ROADIES TO PROVIDE
THE EXPERIENCES YOU’LL NEVER FORGET
Our team came together because we shared a passion for travel, innovative thinking and marketing. Together, we built Roadies. A company built for transformation – not ours, yours. Whether we are transforming your content, your company or your life, it’s the transformation that drives us.
Founder, Chief Explorer
Lee is a serial entrepreneur, Fortune 500 marketer and world traveler. Throughout his adventures, he’s experienced a world that constantly amazes him. The people, the thinking, the culture, the innovation, the experiences. But on the flip side, he’s also seen companies and marketing organizations that are often stuck in a rut. And despite seeing so many talented people in these organizations, they often had a hard time innovating and creating new ways of connecting with each other and their consumers.
Lee grew up in the advertising and marketing world. He worked at agencies like Ogilvy & Mather, Wieden + Kennedy, mcgarrybowen and worked at companies like Coca-Cola and PayPal. It’s both the positives and negatives from those experiences that inspired the creation of Roadies. Roadies is an experience that inspires both transformation in your company and within yourself.
Co-Founder, Chief Adventurer
Mark is a passionate, curious and dynamic leader with over 25 years of experience of building world-class brands and businesses. His journey has been wonderfully circuitous taking in a broad diversity of commerce and cultures. Working for, and on, brands such as Apple, The Coca-Cola Company, Disney and InterContinental Hotels Group has shaped his business acumen. Living in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia has given him a worldly view.
These unique experiences have taught him that what got you where you are today won’t get you where you want to be tomorrow. Transformational outcomes require transformational experiences and this is exactly why Roadies was born. Roadies road trips, where the journey is the destination.
