Ben Thornton-Harwood

A social media specialist, Ben uses his passion for storytelling to deliver story-led content, allowing brands to capture the attention of digital audiences, and keep them engaged for the long term.

Ben started out as a journalist where he freelanced for Shortlist Magazine, covering travel and sport, before transferring his writing skills to social media which was emerging as a new player in the marketing ecosystem.

Working both in-house and agency side as a social media specialist he was tasked with creating and implementing social strategy for some of Instagram’s hottest hotels, including Giraffe Manor, Cobblers Cove, The Oetker Collection and The Lowell, New York. He has worked extensively with influencers and creators to produce content for brands to expand their online presence in a meaningful, organic way.

In his current role, Ben is responsible for devising social strategies that deliver thumb-stopping content, enabling brands to grow their audience, while showcasing their unique attributes in a social-first way. He is also the man behind our own social channels, producing content with which to curate our feeds, and keeping the team and clients in the loop with the latest social trends and developments.

As a former professional baker, Ben is always delighted to nerd out about sourdough fermentation and is certifiably pizza-obsessed. Self-described as a chionophile, he is happiest in the mountains with a board strapped to his feet, a beard full of snow, and a soundtrack of 90’s hip-hop.
