    I use SFS regularly and am extremely happy with the easy use of the site and that I get regular work. It is a very reasonable price taking into consideration what I earn from agencies who contact me via the site.

The Team

Charlie Costello - Co-Founder / Managing Director

Charlie Costello

Birth > BA (Hons) Art Degree (3 yrs) > Founder & Owner – Interior Design Company (4 yrs) > Event Manager (6 yrs) > Co-founder & MD of Stuck Network Ltd (2002)

A creative mind with a flair for business, Charlie’s experience originated largely from his design background, and his interior design business, through a gradual transition in 1999 when he began to work closely with some of the leading FM & BE Agencies, before eventually founding the Stuck Network. Charlie now heads up the Stuck Network as Managing Director.

Charlie loves footwear (sneakers in particular) – in a very big way; in fact Imelda Marcos was once overheard saying ‘he has a lot of shoes’. His motto is “Why paint a picture when a thousand words will do”. A real “Guitar Hero”, he could seriously give Eddie Van Halen a run-for-his-money. Assuming of course, that his guitar has five buttons and no strings.

Darren Darnborough – Co-Founder / Strategic Director

Darren Darnborough

A jack of all trades and master of some, he is a published journalist, professional filmmaker, and has organised and developed various events, from charity benefits for Virgin Unite, to large scale exhibitions with Capital FM. Darren currently is involved in strategic development of and the Stuck brand, taking it far and wide.

Living in Hollywood, California aka LA-LA Land, Darren mainly eats eggplant and zucchini, drinks free pour liquor and has Paris Hiltons number on speed dial. Enough said.

Nick Fennell – Non Executive Director

Nick Fennell

Birth > Degree > Sales Director for Birds Custard among several other major food brands (10 yrs) > Sales & Marketing Director of CPM (8yrs) > Own consultancy business (9 yrs) > Non Executive Director SFS (2007)

Nick Fennell is what you may call the "gray-hair" - he brings us great wisdom and direction. With over 40 years industry-specific experience, he has spent time as Sales and Commercial Director for three major food companies, before his post as Sales & Marketing Director of CPM, which he helped to build into the world's leading Field Marketing company. Following this, he set up Archway Management, a sales & marketing consultancy that advises companies across Europe on directional strategy and new business development, which led him to us!

Outside of work - which his wife Trish says is most of the time - Nick's a great traveller, plays terrible golf and cricket, and keeps alive the great social traditions of his beautiful Oxfordshire village of Adderbury, whilst parading around in his self proclaimed ‘hairdresser’s car’ (aka small shiny sports car).

Emma Bates – Operations Manager

Emma loves lists (and lots of them), holidays & cozy clothes. A fish eating, occasional meat eating vegetarian, Emma also has a fondness for dogs; this is almost surpassed by her love for Ugg boots, which is almost surpassed by her love for chocolate, which is lastly but not least surpassed by her love for ORANGE chocolate! (The best colored chocolate in the world – the future’s bright).

Mary Saunders – Account Manager

Having worked within the Brand Experience industry before joining, Mary brings with her a fresh understanding of the industry and currently handles all agency accounts. Having spent the three previous summers in and out of Ibiza she is a great socialite; communication is her forte. Mary now lives in Birmingham and works at what she claims is her ‘perfect job’. We think she adds that little sparkle to

Mary should by rights have no soles on her shoes due to the extreme amounts of walking she partakes in. Her middle name is ‘bargains’ and her love for new phones is teamed up with her habit of losing the old ones. She loves the color purple but is slowly and subliminally being converted to orange.
