Sam HFounder/Managing Director
With eighteen years’ experience in marketing and digital comms, Sam lives and breathes Digital Marketing & Branding. She is the head trainer for all our corporate training sessions and digital masterclasses. She firmly believes that recruiting the best possible talent will help Chek Digital deliver the great results for clients. With an eye for detail and a finger on the pulse, she’s constantly thinking about clients and how we can serve them better – she’s been known to rush out of a cinema for a client emergency (the film was Jungle Book). She’s mum to a teenager and a pre-teen and eats crazy amounts of salt.
GavinDigital Marketing Director
There’s nothing this guy doesn’t know about digital marketing – PPC, SEO, SEM, PR, KPIs, ROI – the man speaks in acronyms, but he’s well versed in layman’s terms as well. He loves helping his clients navigate their many digital marketing options to create a killer strategy that delivers exceptional returns. When he’s not developing and running client campaigns, he’s being a dad to his very cute doppelganger toddler. He also holds the office record for most completed sky dives (two).
EmmaPhotographer and Video Producer
With nearly ten years’ experience in journalism, documentaries, filmmaking and photography, Emma is our go-to girl when we need beautiful images – moving and still. She has an eye for the perfect shot and a mysterious way of making her subjects feel comfortable in front of the camera – she can make a performer out of anyone! In between making video magic for our clients she is walking Handsome Dutch, her enormous great dane at the park. Seriously, the dog is huge – he weighs more than Emma does.
RonIT & Web Development Manager
Ron is a unique combination in the digital world – he’s an expert coder and programmer but he also has people skills! We would not be without our Mr Fixit – he has been known to reply to emails at 2am because he just won’t sleep until the job is sorted. He has oodles of years of experience as an IT and web designer and is proud to be part of the founding team at Chek Digital. Outside of work he’s a proud soccer dad to two rambunctious boys, and loves nothing better than quad biking or watching bad horror movies from the 80s and 90s.

Loves coffee, sweets, trashy tv, red wine and crafting!
Enthusiastic about all areas around visual creativity and an avid digital designer, Alex has a precise perspective for any project that requires an innovative visual solution. His experience of 13 years in the industry has resulted in expertise from a wide range of projects and know-how to deliver design and content solutions even for the most challenging kind of projects (helped by copious amounts of coffee).
With over 5 years’ experience as a copywriter and a life time of creative writing, Elle adores all things wordy. The task of taking an idea and transforming it into words that persuade, engage and inspire is her idea of a day well spent.
Outside of work Elle can be found chasing her toddler and British Bulldog around the house. And when the household is quiet, she is perfecting her homemade chocolate recipe.
The WordPress ninja, Asher prides himself on his attention to detail, beautiful coding practices and solving even the toughest client challenges in a matter of minutes. Hailing from the sunny shores of Byron Bay, Asher moved to cosmopolitan Melbourne in 2002 and enjoys his job as much as he does drinking beers on a balmy summer day.
CyrusSocial Media Director
Cyrus doesn’t believe in single job titles, describing himself as illustrator, graphic designer, painter, emoji creator and logo specialist. His previous advertising clients include Milo, KFC, Nestle, Gerber, Toblerone and Clinique. Why a designer working as social media director? It’s increasingly a visual medium. He once spent time working on client designs while in hospital after eating dodgy sushi – this is not a man who accepts mediocrity. Do not ask him about The Walking Dead and do not feed him cake.
