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.
Co-Founder of Ubiquitous responsible for PR & Marketing and day to day liaison between Head Office & Operations. Lisa spent many years agency side at WCRS so she totally understands the real needs of agencies and their clients. She also learnt how to become very pedantic about account management and acquired a devilish attention to detail.
Bob, for many years, was a respected, but arch nemesis of Andrew. However, now firmly ensconced at Ubiquitous, Bob and Andrew now combine to bring over 50 years unequivocal experience in taxi advertising.
