Over thirty five years in taxi advertising really does not begin to give you a sense of how instrumental Andrew has been in the progression of taxis as a truly effective sales and brand medium. Every time someone mentions the words MegaSides, SuperSides, or Tip Up Seats, that is a creation of Andrew. Of course, Andrew will hate us for saying all of this stuff as, to him, taxi advertising is all he has ever known. He still gets the same buzz today as he did at the very beginning of his career.
A part of Ubiquitous from the beginning, Micky knows the world of taxis inside out and loves nothing more than to introduce a new client to taxi advertising, the Ubiquitous way. Across Operations and driver recruitment to creative selling and client entertaining, Micky knows the business inside out and even regularly kick-starts our day by cooking team breakfast!
