Ben Tyson, Managing Director of BORN SOCIAL

Ben joined BORN SOCIAL in 2012 when the agency was in its infancy, initially to help set up the Strategy and Creative teams. He has helped take the business from a small outfit to one of the UK’s leading social media agencies in the years since.

BORN SOCIAL now works with hundreds of challenger brands (or ‘Davids’ – not Goliaths) across the world, helping them leverage the vast opportunity social media offers them in the digital age. He believes that the world is a better place when David wins, and that’s what he is out to achieve with BORN SOCIAL. Day to day, his role focuses on setting the strategy for the business, oversight of all client work and leading on the agency’s expansion internationally.

BORN SOCIAL was founded on the innate understanding the younger generation of marketers has of social media, so Ben also focuses a lot of his time on growing the agency’s young, ambitious team.He is a passionate advocate for the power of social media – and indeed the internet as a whole – in the modern world, and speaks regularly at events and workshops.
