Meet the Team
Our services are based on three aspects: web development, content and marketing. Here at OMA our specialists act as account managers, ensuring a clear understanding of tasks and objectives.
Thomas Bridge // Founder
Returning to his Oxford roots, Tom has had a very successful and established career in marketing. Throughout his time in marketing he has been consistently disappointed with the majority of agencies he has used, from being invoiced for hosting that wasn’t happening to being charged large sums from SEO companies who did very limited work.
With this in mind and a wealth of experience under his belt, Tom decided to start his own marketing agency – and it seems to be paying off!
Away from the office (which rarely happens), Tom is a devoted Wycombe Wanderers and Liverpool fan, avid film watcher, hockey goalkeeper and a fitness enthusiast.
Eduard Chilcos // Managing Director
Ed took the reigns of Oxford Marketing Agency in January 2018 and is responsible for bringing in business and overseeing its delivery. Prior to this Ed spent 12 months in sister Business Magdalen Marketing Agency (MMA), helping to build up a team of over 10 and a client roster of over 50 in just one year.
Before his OMA / MMA combo, Ed studied Business Administration at the University of Transilvania. He spent the next few years working for Ipsos MORI and InnerTrends, a tech startup in Romania.
In search of a new adventure, he decided to move to the UK. With a strong interest in health & fitness, history, and hip-hop, Ed likes to spend most of his spare time trying to figure out how he would be able to leave a lasting, positive impact upon the world.

After spending 12 months client-side as a marketing support executive at Microsoft, the thrilling and diverse nature of agency work at OMA is what prompted the change and enticed him the most.

Outside of work, sports (Football and F1) are amongst Phil’s other passions, whether it’s playing, watching or just keeping active.
You may often see him sporting durag and some fabulous shoes!
Sabina Bridge // Grammar Guru
Girl in da corner, AKA Sabina the grammar guru!
Before leaving the UK in search of sunnier climes in Australia, Sabina worked in the environment industry. She then moved into English teaching before joining the OMA team.
A self-confessed grammar nerd, one of Sabina’s favourite childhood memories is purchasing a child’s grammar book, and reading it cover to cover. Having now progressed to grown-up grammar books, she still can’t get enough of the stuff. Instalments of her grammar knowledge are now shared in our newsletter’s Grammar Corner.
Outside of work, Sabina makes the most of the Brisbane lifestyle with her husband and daughter by hitting the beach, pool or hanging out with koalas as pictured.
