With a track record honed within financial services, Chris brings strong leadership abilities to the agency and is responsible for managing the account handling team. Chris sets very high standards for those working alongside him. Almost as high as the ones he sets himself.
Our trilingual Cape Town native has been building websites professionally since 1996, giving him a wealth of experience that’s put to good use overseeing our technical output. The usability and intuitiveness of a CMS is key for a man as skilled in programming languages as he is in verbal ones.
New Business Director Paul works across both the creative and media side of The Lane, which means nobody knows more about our business. So if you’re interested in our credentials or our services, he’s your man. He’s also got an encyclopaedic knowledge of all the Laners – from favourite foods to taste in music – basically there’s nothing he can’t tell you about our agency – from who we are and what we do.
With years of design experience working with some of the biggest names in the industry, Ross’ knowledge is second to none. Always in demand for fresh approaches, with high-tech looks in motion graphics and website design ensuring a site is as pleasing to navigate as it is to look at. Ross possesses an exceptional talent when it comes to making the complex, simple.
An all-round top digital designer with household brand names like Nando’s, RBS, Famous Grouse and IRN-BRU under his belt, Mark loves nothing more (except possibly Hibs) than using design to get a message across visually or, his personal favourite, creating motion graphics for social media.
From social media to fully integrated campaigns, there’s barely an area of digital that isn’t catered for by Jaimie’s extensive expertise. A globetrotting adventure junkie, Jaimie’s able to keep a keen eye on all the moving parts of whatever project she’s working on… and still manages to bring the banter.
One of the rising stars we’re proud to have on board, Ria is a highly capable operator who excels in the field of Digital Media Planning. As well as being Google Partner accredited, Ria is skilled in her understanding of social media strategies and the benefits these bring to clients.

Coming from a marketing & advertising background and based in Lane Media, Vicky loves all things digital. Supporting on the day-to-day running of clients’ digital activity, she enjoys analysing the data to makes sense of it all. Need to ensure your campaign’s fully optimised? Look no further.
Sallie specialises in brand and advertising strategy which completely suits her “mix of left brain logic and right brain rationality” and makes her totally at home at The Lane. She’s also the president and founder of Bloom Scotland and dog mama to woman’s best friend, Betty.
Never one to shy away from an Irish stereotype, Orla’s signature dish is Guinness wheaten bread. Her guilty secret, when she’s not working her socks off at the Lane is her obsession with The Kardashians but despite this she is impressively experienced in corporate comms across a wide range of sectors, and is always a calm, capable and reassuring presence for her happy clients.
Catriona is proudly from the Scottish Borders and coincidentally she’s bordering on the obsessive when it comes to design perfection, with a particular penchant for the Scandinavian aesthetic after studying design in Finland, via Aberdeen. Her other passion is cycling and during a virtual team challenge where we ‘pedalled’ the 14,000 km from Edinburgh to Cape Town, Catriona put everyone to shame by doing more than the rest of the agency combined!
After a brief stint thinking he was an artist, Diarmuid figured being an art director might be a better option. Since then he’s worked with a wide range of different clients, including financial, government and FMCG, and he gets a real kick out of coming up with ideas. He also enjoys making animations and attempting to write Tweets that get more than 10 likes.
