Marcus Bendall

Digital Director

What do you do at Gloo? I oversee all aspects of digital advertising and design at Gloo. This predominantly entails designing and building websites or developing and maintaining digital ad campaigns through Google or social media. 

What are your credentials/experience for working in your position? I took night courses in graphic design throughout high school and college and then started working at an advertising agency in my hometown after I graduated. Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to learn skills in many areas around design, including animation and motion graphics, architectural drafting, offset printer maintenance, sign engraving, screen printing, and of course, web development and coding. 

What’s been one of your best professional accomplishments? I ran my creative studio for six years before transitioning into my role at Gloo, which has been great. I can now focus on using my skills to help my clients and less worry about running a business! 

What do you like about working at Gloo? The team. Everyone here is so skilled in their field and committed to helping everybody else deliver the best result for the client. After working solo for six years, it’s incredible to have this support network. 

What are the values that drive you? Innovation and improvement. 

What’s your favourite quote? " 'You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.' - Wayne Gretzky"- Michael Scott

What are your top 3 favourite podcasts/books? I love the podcasts Off Menu with Ed Gamble and James Acaster and The Aunty Donna Podcast, and my favourite book is The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. 

What are your hobbies and interests? Ice hockey, snowboarding, sailing, and board games. Plus, I will beat you at Mario Kart. Every time. 

What are your favourite travel destinations? My partner and I found a tiny resort in a remote corner of Thailand with a bungalow ten steps from the beach and a bar that started making us mojitos at breakfast. If I can’t get back there, I’ll take it anywhere with good snowboarding (but Norway and I are on a break).
