Graduating from Cranfield University with a Masters degree in Motorsport Engineering and Management, Allen spent 15 seasons in the high-speed environment of motorsport working initially in the WRC with Subaru and Mini world rally teams and then latterly with Aston Martin Racing in various GT championships. Recent experience also includes a two year secondment as a Technical Account Manager.

Bran is our enviably handsome office pup; he's intelligent, hard-working and very serious about his cuddly pheasant, aka 'phezy'. Bran's not all work and no play, though; given a chance, he will play all day until he crashes out on the sofa with a perfectly full belly - not that dissimilar to the rest of us at IC.
We don’t just achieve results. We achieve the right results. We add value by digging deeper; we’re talking about fundamentals. Foundations. Behind-the-scenes systems that connect all the dots. We make sure processes are perfect before we think about the sexy stuff (which we’re excellent at, too, BTW). We strive to achieve the best for every client, big or small, speak to anyone, and they will say the same thing “we go the extra mile”.
We’re storytellers, designers, humans. Giving our all to every problem we solve. As a team, we bring an energy that makes anything seem possible – each member has drive and expertise that they bring every.single.day. People enjoy working with us because we’re passionate about what we do.
If Ignition Collective were a person, they’d be your best friend, your rock, the one you can always count on. You know they are always going to do what they say they are going to do, when they say they are going to do it. Phew, that was a mouthful.
Driven, focused, and dedicated to the creative process. We make it our mission to consistently deliver original and powerful ideas. We know that great ideas don’t just happen by accident; it’s down to hard work, research, imagination and innovation.
Combining a vivid imagination with a desire for practical solutions, we Get Stuff Done. We are never afraid to ask the important questions and seek invaluable insight, ensuring we provide solutions that not only deliver but seemingly achieve the impossible.
We’re always looking for exceptional people to do brilliant things.
