Dianne Wright

Strategic Evolution

Born and raised in Niagara, Canada, Dianne’s experience and portfolio extends around the World. After graduating from University of Waterloo and University of Ulster in Northern Ireland, Dianne settled in Europe where she held senior corporate sales and marketing roles within STA Travel Group, Lufthansa German Airlines, Star Alliance and Hertz UK Limited.

Dianne’s responsibilities included global contract negotiations, market research, training and development, execution of strategic marketing initiatives involving partnerships and loyalty. Dianne created and implemented highly successful multi-partner loyalty programs, through traditional channels, online and mobile across Europe in the 90s.

Dianne returned to Canada in 2002 and spent a season as a snowboard instructor at Whistler Blackcomb Resort in British Columbia before joining Flight Centre, as Head of Marketing for Eastern Canada, where she became instrumental in that retail chain’s unprecedented growth in the Canadian travel market. Dianne was particularly effective at incentivising staff to optimize performance.

Since 2003, as an entrepreneur, a creative conceptualist and marketing communications leader, Di has engaged her dynamic range of skills with companies across all business sectors as a branding and communications expert and strategic business consultant.

She works with companies to build their brand and communications strategies across multiple channels and leads a talented team specializing in advertising, marketing, print, graphic design, digital, social media and multimedia.

As an individual, Di shares her infinite passion for her family with a love for the outdoors including all sports on snow and water. When not doing chimpy things Dianne prefers to be at home attempting to grow vegetables and hanging out in the garden with Ruby and Flynn.

Phil Kirwin

Phil Kirwin

Creative Evolution

There are designers that understand page layout but not web design; those that can create beautiful brochures but cannot manage multiple time-sensitive projects simultaneously; and then there is Phil Kirwin.

An honours graduate of University of Westminster and the Watford College of Art, Phil has impressed some of the world’s largest, busiest and most exacting companies including PA Recruitment Advertising, Arthur Andersen, Amway and SmithKline Beecham. Phil is well accomplished in all aspects of design and typography, self-taught in industry standard design and image manipulation software.

Phil’s award-winning portfolio is a who’s who of some of the world’s most prestigious brands including American Express, AT&T, Coca-Cola, Dell, Disney, Kodak, Metropolitan Police (London, UK), Shell, Virgin and Volkswagen.

Phil’s ten year old company, Chimpanzee, has quickly secured an impressive array of accounts, including Steven Page, Anna Olson, Ontario Science Centre, Plant Specialists and Fielding Estate Winery, to name just a few. Chimpanzee has also achieved Vendor of Record status for the province of Ontario - the only Niagara-based agency to do so. 

Phil is also Mr. Social Chimp and heads up all things Facebook, Twitter, etc, for a number of our clients, relationship building and measuring social impact at the same time. 

As Phil’s clients will attest, Chimpanzee produces a wide range of creative materials, both print and electronic, with incredible speed, accuracy and market appeal. 

Of course, all work and no play would make Phil a very dull boy indeed. When he’s not at work with his first passion, creative design, you’ll likely find Phil teaching his kids the finer art of footy, or soccer to us Canadians, or cheering on his hometown club, Liverpool FC.

Zoran Kolundzic

Zoran Kolundzic

Digital Evolution

Zoran is not to be confused with the famous hero Zorro, though they share many of the same characterics.

Zoran is the Chimp’s fearless digital leader. A graduate of Brock University, he excelled in Computer Sciences and started many of his own ventures as a young grad. He has been at the forefront of developing tools for online business since the early 90’s. Don’t let his boyish good looks fool you, he is very experienced!

As a Serbian-Canadian, Zoran spends time in both countries and brings the latest and greatest European digital experience to our team of developers. As a software architect and programmer, Zoran has developed various applications used in the financial, hospitality and health sciences industries.

Zoran delivers results and is well versed in SEO, internet marketing and e-commerce. He leads a team of senior level developers who are well versed in PHP (Zend, CodeIgniter, Symphony) frameworks, MySQL and Mongo databases, Linux as well as applications for Android and Apple iOS.

Zoran is not all work and no play, he finds time to put down his smart phone, tablet or step away from the online world to play basketball and catch up on Storage Wars (Yuuup)!
