Our Expert Team
Co-Founder & Managing Director
After 15 years' in the sector, Chris launched Wish Digital to create a transparent, expert, results focused agency. His expertise across user experience, online retail & digital marketing is second to none & put to great use for our clients. When he's not puzzling over our next strategic move, he's managing our fantastic client portfolio or making sure the studio have enough tea and coffee to keep them going. Before his body started to resist, Chris used to play a lot of football, these days he runs and enters muddy obstacle course events to stay fit, and of course enjoys spending time with his wife and three kids.
Co-Founder & Managing Partner
A faded child TV star, Wilf fell reluctantly into marketing in his 20’s and found to both his surprise and relief he was actually quite good at it. Since then Wilf has worked in marketing in Europe and the US before founding Wish in 2003. With a wealth of senior marketing experience on both the agency and client side, Wilf tragically still awaits that elusive and frankly unlikely call from a television casting director.
Having joined Wish over ten years ago, Steve has grown to become the senior creative lead in the studio, his past experience in offline creative gradually became extensive expertise in digital design, producing everything from emails to websites or apps to bespoke CRM & internal portals - always keen to add a slab of creativity and researching new ways to push designs for our clients. Outside of Wish Steve enjoys the challenges of parenthood, live music with plenty of guitars, following the highs & lows of Castleford Tigers Rugby League, and a good mud run every now and again.
Digital Project Manager
Mark works with the design and development team, ensuring projects are run on time and come in on budget. He also provides on-going support and assistance to clients following the launch of sites. With over five years' experience in both agency and client side marketing teams coupled with a business degree from Manchester Metropolitan University, he's able to provide guidance to clients on how to build their web presence post launch. Outside of work you'll find Mark cycling and running around the Yorkshire hills or planning the next foreign city to explore.
Web & Apps Developer
Andy has been developing apps and websites for as long as he can remember, eventually turning this passion into a flourishing career. A PHP perfectionist and with over a decade in the agency world, his experience ensures he delivers outstanding online solutions to our client's challenges. Outside of work Andy's a keen musician and loves to make a good home brew.
Web & Apps Developer
Craig is a self taught expert in everything to do with the internet. If Tim Berners-Lee hadn't created it, Craig would have - and it would probably be even better. From ecommerce websites, to apps, to API's, Craig turns his hand to all kinds of complex projects at Wish, and with a strong understanding of SEO to boot, he ensures our websites are incredibly well optimised for success. When he's not at work, he's usually either coding or repairing a mechanical issue on his motorbike.
Head of Digital Marketing
Steve has been a familiar face on Yorkshire's digital scene for over 12 years, having begun his journey in the pre-Panda & Penguin SEO industry back in 2005. Since those heady days, Steve has spent time building award-winning marketing teams for a couple of digital agencies, directing the ecommerce operations of some of the area's most recognisable brands and running his own Digital Lead Generation Consultancy. He has now returned to his spiritual home in the agency world and has wasted no time in shaping the Wish marketing service offering into a force to be reckoned with. A keen footballer, Steve can often be seen smashing the ball 20 feet over the goal at one of Harrogate's sporting arenas.
Diane has racked up over twenty years experience in the industry, and with a meticulous eye for detail and a calmness under pressure, she has become a valued member of the team. Diane loves to spend time with her family, and if she’s not with them she’ll be flipping tyres and lifting weights at boot camp or training for her next run.
Account & Project Manager
A strong background in advertising, working within leading advertising agencies in the North of England, perfected Andrew's client servicing skill set. He is the customer's champion, striving to ensure that nothing short of a premium service is delivered to Wish Digital's clients. Andrew liaises with clients and the studio, managing project critical paths and all activity to deliver on project objectives. Outside of work, he's another fitness freak, if he's not at the gym or cycling, he's thinking about either of those things and if he's not thinking about those things, he's probably reading about them.
Online PR & Campaign Specialist

Helen manages all of the agency finances, invoicing and credit control, as well as the company payroll, liaising with our suppliers and ensuring we pay all of our bills on time. When she isn't thanking clients for paying their invoices on time, number crunching or trying to locate a receipt that one of us has lost, Helen enjoys watching her lads play football (to a high standard we might add!).
