Andrew Barnett

Managing Director

Over thirty years in taxi advertising really does not begin to give you a sense of how instrumental Andrew has been in the progression of taxis as a truly effective sales and brand medium. Every time someone mentions the words MegaSides, SuperSides, or Tip Up Seats, that is a creation of Andrew. Of course, Andrew will hate us for saying all of this stuff as, to him, taxi advertising is all he has ever known. He still gets the same buzz today as he did at the very beginning of his career.

Martin Castle

Director of Operations

I am responsible for the smooth running of the Ubiquitous Operations Centre at Tent Street, which incorporates administration of driver details, appointments and the production and fitting of all taxi adverts.
I have been here for three and a half years, having previously managed transport and logistics for a major retailer, so I know how to handle lots of vehicles, which is essential when working here as we have the biggest taxi advertising fleet in the UK!
I have quite literally whipped the team at Tent Street into shape, having installed a gym here! We work together and we work out together, which is a great way to keep body and mind fit and to keep the team motivated.
Every day is a challenge, managing workloads, managing staff, liaising with drivers and fleets and helping clients with their campaign artwork – we do it all here!
