Mark Rodick

Founder

I set up Orckid Design and Marketing 20 years ago following several years in TV Advertising at McCann Erickson.

My objective was to build a team of creative marketing professionals that understood a wide range of client brands and businesses, to develop insightful creative solutions that really sell - and help clients engage with their customers and consumers.

I enjoy working on new projects with our existing clients - as their businesses evolve and change, - and also love the challenge of getting to know new clients.

We remain a group of focussed and creative people who enjoy what we do!

Outside of work I am passionate about rugby, tennis and fly fishing and enjoy holidays anywhere warm!
