Meet the Hill tribe.

Our team is small but perfectly formed. Our diverse skill sets allow us to take a 360o view of the digital landscape your company is operating in. Design, technology, user experience, return on investment – you’ll see everything from the Hill.

New York. Sydney. Melbourne. Singapore. Perth. Jane literally has a world of experience in all things digital and marketing. After 25 years of working for the power players and some very long titles (Head of Online and Lead Global Advisor at Merrill Lynch & Co, Worldwide Head of Marketing, e-Business for Deloitte) she founded Lenox Hill.

As Chief of the Hill tribe, Jane is the big picture strategist who analyses how to make digital and innovative technology deliver big-time for your business – no matter how big or small. Just some of the companies she has guided on their digital transformation journey include Bankwest, TAFE Queensland, P&N Bank, Synergy, Telethon Kids Institute, John Hughes, the Catholic Education Office and Microsoft.

Along the way, she has won a mantelpiece full of international awards including three while at Merrill and seven digital/communication awards from her time as Head of Digital at Bankwest. Another nice bit of paper she’s collected is an Honours Degree in Commerce.

While awards are nice, as a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants and Chair of the Institute’s Business Advisory Committee her focus is on maximizing your R.O.I.

And because life wasn’t quite busy enough running her own business and looking after two teen sons and a very large groodle, she is also a member of UWA’s Ambassadorial Council and sits on several boards.

Nicknamed ‘Google’ at school (for her large eyes but it should have been for her even larger brain), it is any wonder that Cat has become a digital dynamo?

Cat has led the scoping, planning and executing of major digital strategies for some of Australia’s most respected brands including Telethon Kids Institute, TAFE Queensland, Lifeline Australia and Perth Energy. She’s also worked for global players like Microsoft in Asia Pac and a tech start up out of New York.

Cat also loves helping little guys leverage the same techniques to achieve the same results too.

While she prides herself on delivering projects that feel simple and effortless from the user’s experience, the reality is it takes a carefully considered content strategy, disciplined UX definition, up-to-the minute tech optimisation - and an endless supply of lollies and Gummi Worms.

In her pre-Lenox life Cat worked in-house as the marketing and digital strategist for a national legal firm and publishing company, so she appreciates what it’s like to sit on your side of the table. From paid and organic search project management through to a complete digital transformation, her ‘google’ eyes ensure you don’t miss a trick.

Dd’s been in the digital strategy game for over a year now, seamlessly transitioning into the team with her stabilising influence and unparalleled listening skills. Her dedication to large volumes of long, sporadic naps is exceeded only by her commitment to trespassing into our neighbouring office.

As head of security, Dd manages all online virus and bug protection programs for our clients, in addition to safeguarding the Lenox Hill workspace with her naturally authoritative presence.

Technically, Sarah has over twelve years of experience in all things web development. According to Marc Anthony* logic however, by turning her passion into her profession she’s never worked a day in her life.

A true digital native, Sarah spent her teens building websites for fun. By the time uni rolled around, the childhood ambition of Marine Biology was out and a Bachelor of Communications at ECU, with a double major in Interactive Media and Film & Video, was in.

Like any born web developer, she’s fluent in all things anime as well as (but of course not limited to!) HTML/CSS, JavaScript, Magento, WordPress, Shopify and responsive web development.

Sarah is proud to be a kick-ass web developer in a field usually dominated by her hoodie-wearing online gaming brethren. A strong problem solver, she loves creating feature-rich solutions with an emphasis on usability and performance.

Which talent would Sarah most like to have? Hacker, of course.

Alex's superpowers are understanding complex systems, remaining levelheaded in a panic and identifying which elements he actually has control over. Which kind of makes him Lenox Hill's Yoda - although he identifies more with Nikola Tesla.

Either way, he's our digiguru who is as comfortable on the tools as he is in planning and management roles. And what a toolbox it is! His skills include programming, data manipulation, DevOps provisioning and processes, system integrations, software and system architecture, app development, data visualization and risk assessment. Now you know how he developed that superpower for understanding systems with many dimensions and moving parts.

Alex has the answers, without any of the ego. His approach is to listen, listen, listen so he can form a clear understanding of the project, your business and team. That level head will assess when to spend and when to save, so you achieve the most pragmatic solution.

Yoda’s mantra of, "Always pass on what you have learned" is pure Alex. He views challenges as an opportunity for a business to learn, adapt and move on as efficiently as possible. May the force of Alex be with you.

Paul is fluent in nine languages including English and Polish. The others are C#, GLSL, JavaScript, Perl, PHP and SQL. Half Polish, half Filipino and 100% Australian, Paul was raised on coding.

He wrote his first programs in DOS at age 11 and was well and truly hooked. In the intervening years he has immersed himself in every new program and technology as it has come along. (Don’t let that baby face fool you – he has decades of experience.)

You name it Paul knows it. He is a full-stack developer experienced in Front-end Development, Database Management, Infrastructure, .NET Solutions, PHP Solutions and Protocols. A true all-rounder and white hat, Paul believes in using his powers for good and is a keen contributor to the open source movement.

When he’s not shaping our clients’ digital worlds, he’s building his own and is a passionate indie game developer.

Ok, so Lauren’s dream of becoming a back-up dancer for Justin Timberlake didn’t quite pan out. However, the discipline that went into years of tap and ballet lessons, the talent for working closely with others to create something amazing and the ability to listen intently before acting, haven’t gone to waste.

Since graduating from Curtin Uni with a Bachelor of Journalism in 2014, Lauren has performed her magic in government and across the construction, travel and automotive industries.

She has overseen the website review for a local government. She has managed to get local businesses and the community singing from the same songbook on a major Perth road project. She has developed strategic marketing plans for one of WA’s largest car dealership networks, increasing their R.O.I on marketing spend. She even managed to squeeze in a Master of Communication Management at Murdoch University, in 2017.

Since joining Lenox Hill she’s actively worked on a large variety of clients in the disability services sector, a tech start up, a global software company and a large retail client. Now this senorita is tapping into all her skills and experience to bring sexyback to customer experience. Not a bad thing!

What do you get if you cross a cruciverbalist (a.k.a. a cryptic crossword addict) with a Compliance, Fraud and Anti-Money Laundering expert? The answer is our very smart Alex - a champion problem solver with the ability to think three steps ahead.

Alex honed her business strategy skills in the UK, where she held Senior Management roles for a number of banks and financial service providers, including the esteemed Lloyds TSB.

In Australia, she moved from trying to thwart baddies to delivering the goodies for Bankwest. As head of credit cards, personal loans and insurance, she held Executive Management responsibility for product development, management and marketing, pricing and customer experience. She’s done loads in the area of marketing automation and in delivering new products and experiences to key audiences.

Not wanting to be a banker all her life, she worked in Aged Care, before bringing her 20 years of Senior Management experience to digital.

Alex knows what makes people tick, spend, save and push the boundaries – extremely useful in a Digital and Business Strategist.
