The Gate London has hired award-winning Senior Copywriter / Creative Director Daniel Headey to work on their blossoming portfolio, with his main emphasis to be on their financial and B2B roster. 

Ex-Saatchi, Ogilvy and ELVIS, he brings a wealth of experience from every creative sector. In addition to this, for the last 10 years Dan has been successfully helping a plethora of agencies on freelance basis, including AnalogFolk, IRIS, M&C Saatchi, and direct clients such as Rolls Royce. Among many other projects, he has created a Google Street View game for Virgin Trains; the first OOH campaign for LinkedIn Sales Navigator; a Halloween App for Sainsbury’s and, more recently, naming and launching a sports data platform for the Microsoft Group.

Dan Headey said, “The Gate has inspired me to rip the ‘Balaclava of Freelance’ off and belong to something again. They are doing excellent work, winning clients left, right and centre and are all nice people. What’s not to like? I’m ready to walk through walls…and build something.”
