Who's Behind Gimme Media?
Toby Drysdale is the driving force behind Gimme Media. An avid computer geek who started out in the early 80's with a ZX Spectrum, going on to train in computer programming with Doncaster Council, before returning to higher education to gain an HND in Informatics (programming, systems analysis and marketing).
A year with a local publishing company running the local newspaper, was followed by a year with Yorkshire Post Newspapers in the sales department, and then finally, 16 years with AB Print Group, were he started with 2 years in Sales before managing the Estimating Department and then the IT Department. Head of Health & Safety for the Group and Chief Tea boy were amongst other "titles" he held.
But, having spent 18 years in the print, publishing and advertising arena, he felt that it was time to go it alone, building on his passion for computers, websites and marketing. And so, Gimme Media was born.
