We meet the newest team members here at Red-Fern Media. Ryan joined Red-Fern in November 2017 as a Digital Marketing Executive. Dean followed in January 2018 as the business continues to grow.
Ryan Gray - Digital Marketing Executive
Ryan is our Digital Marketing Executive at Red-Fern and has spent the last 8 years of his career experiencing everything the marketing sector has to offer.
There aren’t many industries that Ryan hasn’t marketed in - from agency work to construction, retail, the financial services and the education sector. He’s seen things, people.
Degree educated in English Language and Business Studies, Ryan spends most of his time in the office juggling all our Digital Marketing projects. This includes developing marketing strategies, liaising with clients, writing content, managing HubSpot accounts and in-depth SEO work.
When Ryan isn’t working, he’s gaming. Ryan entertains an audience of thousands on his Twitch gaming channel two days a week playing a variety of video games.
He also plays basketball at the semi-professional level, after captaining his university basketball team to the English championship.
Factoid alert: Ryan has been a season ticket holder at Burnley FC for over 10 years and takes a lot of pride in supporting his local team. It’s just a shame his local team was BURNLEY. Sorry, Ryan.
Dean Dallman - Content Marketing Executive
Dean is often the first one in the office. Two-year-olds are the most natural (and annoying) alarm available, so he’s fresh and ready to go by 8:00 am.
The first task of the day is making a strong but sweet cup of Yorkshire Tea in his cherished Chelsea FC mug, then channel his inner Content Marketing guru.
With two degrees in Sports Science and Journalism, Dean expected to be presenting Match of the Day by now. That is yet to develop. But watch this space, he’s coming for you, Gary.
True to his literary background, Dean’s favourite part of the job is writing blogs and proofreading them endlessly. He believes in punchy, powerful copy that grabs and informs the reader.
Dean’s sworn enemy is long, descriptive text. Why say something in 20 words when you can say it in 10? He likes to ‘butcher’ text and considers himself a ’word surgeon’.
Outside of work Dean likes to work-out at the gym and go exploring with his partner and daughter.
Factoid alert: One day he would like to set up his own business and become Lord Sugar’s business partner on The Apprentice. Although it would be a secret ploy to meet his crush, Karren Brady.
Now you've met our fabulous team at Red-Fern Media, why not schedule your project connect call to discuss your requirements. Our team are more than happy to help you and your business get on the road to success.
