Sean Doyle

Director | Brand & Creative

Sean is the man behind what we know as “being Clive” today. Having led the development of our brand and creative culture from the start, not to mention Clive Ireland and event-venues.com - he has poured his heart and soul into our brand. With 15 years experience, Sean has produced events for some of the biggest brands around, clocking up some serious air miles along the way. He has a true passion for creative communications, making message-delivery more effective and memorable.

Out of work, he’s into his interior design and furniture refurbishment. If you ask nicely, he might show you his fancy upcycled sideboard! He has one weakness (that we know of…) and that’s sausage rolls. Grease his palms with a Greggs and he’ll be putty in your hands.

Dave Butler

3D Designer

We don’t know if you know this, but Dave’s kind of a big deal. At just 6 years old, he got to grips with a 28 MHz PC. His obsession grew until he graduated with a BSc First Class Honours in ‘Animation & Visual FX’ - he’s now a trained animator who specialises as a 3D environment artist with experience in everything from motion graphics and medical animation to games design and cinema (animation & CGI).

And yet there is more… He has a deep interest in physics and its digital applications. He’s a big film fanatic who’s into synthwave, whatever that is. He is even interested in architecture and loves travelling. He’s been all over the place, New Zealand is his favourite apparently. What a guy!

Sergio Maestro

Digital Designer

Sergio joined Clive in January 2015, to bolster our digital design team, creating engaging campaign brands, delegate communication websites and event apps.

Having spent years in the travel and events industries yearning to fully unleash his creativity, this stifled maverick has now found his true calling. While his vibrant ramblings need reining in from time to time, his passion for immersive experiences and the alternative has earned him the position as the voice of Clive.

You can usually find the man behind the comms in his natural habitat; in the great outdoors enjoying cold beans or even colder cider.
