Paul Newbury

Co-founder & CTO

Paul has many years of experience in the world of data. He’s data through and through – a mathematician, a statistician and a magician. He not only founded the company but heads up the Cardiff office which is the beating heart of our analytics operation. His shared vision of providing the best data centric agency around led him to founding the company in 2006. Before that he worked in data, yep pretty obvious, for some of the largest financial organisations, including Lloyds TSB. He is the go to man for all things data.

Stephan has been around the block a bit by his own admission, gaining experience within companies such as Virgin Group and Lloyds TSB. In 2006, he co-founded Yard with the sole aim of disrupting the complacency that was, and still is, commonplace in the digital marketing industry. If you’re going to do something, do it right. Sat at the helm of Yard, Stephan’s vision is for a constantly evolving environment where skilled individuals are encouraged to follow their passion and achieve their full potential. Do him proud and you can kick back and have a cold beer on a Friday.

He’s extremely proud of the Yardie culture he’s helped to create and so he should be.
