Meet The Team

For us, the people behind Airbase are more important than any branding we could fabricate.

So here we are, hopefully we don’t scare you off…

Phil Slorick


Our Founder, Phil, has worked in marketing for about 250 million years, since getting a music degree and realising he was never going to make it as a performer. 

Being a geek at heart, he’s been messing with marketing technology in one shape or another for more than 20 years. 

He’s been his own boss properly since 2007 – a decision he describes as both the best and worst he ever made.


  • Trying new things
  • 80s disco
  • (Very) Dirty jokes



  • Pessimism
  • Cheap coffee, cheap beer, cheap people…

Phil’s body is actually made up of 55% coffee, not water like most others.

Sally Walker


As Chief Operations Officer, Sally is the beating heart of day-to-day activities at Airbase. 

While Phil focuses on strategy and planning, Sally makes sure those plans come to life.

She has experience in a broad range of sectors, starting with operations and business development in the construction industry. 

She later worked with The Co-operative Group, Co-operative Financial Services, the National Trust and Edsential before joining Airbase in 2018.

Sally’s from Yorkshire and has a tendency to call a spade a f*cking shovel.

  • Football
  • Gogglebox
  • Aircraft: planes, helicopters… basically anything flying overhead.
  • Lots of things, where should we start…?

Sally can whistle really loudly, usually deafening all that sit near her at football matches.

Ellen Richardson

Marketing Coordinator

Ellen is the Marketing Coodinator for Airbase, leading on marketing activity for the company. 

In short, she helps us, so we can help you. 

If you’ve found us through our website, it’s almost certainly her fault.

She also has a sideline making and selling custom berets in the shape of frogs and toads and stuff.

Her main responsibilities include:

  • Marketing campaign planning
  • Content creation
  • Copywriting
  • Website management
  • Entertaining the office with her lack of filter, pretty much voicing any thought that pops into her head at any given time


  • Animals (especially birds)
  • Writing
  • Cartoons


  • Maths
  • People chewing loudly
  • Wooden ice lolly sticks – she says the texture goes right through her!

Ellen owns 4 birds at home – two budgies and two cockatiels! 

We fear one day she may run away to become a full time crazy bird lady.

Martin Pearson

Senior Martech Consultant

After completing his studies in music production, Martin now works as a Marketing Technology Consultant here at Airbase. 

Given he hails from Rhyl, frankly we’re not surprised he’d do anything he could to stay on this side of the border. 

Anyway, turns out he’s a dab hand at building emails.

You can commonly find him strategizing email sequences, email content and (to put it lightly) grappling with the tech to implement them.


  • Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
  • Football
  • Faith No More (the best band in the world)



  • Oasis (the poor man’s Stone Roses)
  • The English national football team
  • Squids

Martin is a lifelong supporter of Wrexham football club.

Aaron Hinkley

Martech Consultant

Phil thought he was the Official Geek in the office… until Aaron came along, who takes it to a whole other level. 

As a Marketing Technology Consultant, he’s able to put those geeky tendencies to good use. 

Lovingly nicknamed ‘The Website Goblin’, Aaron shines when it comes to tech – often making sure everything we use is set up, optimised and working smoothly.

He also reminds the rest of us we were all young and impressionable once – and, Aaron, we apologise for corrupting you so early in life with our office antics.


  • Making websites
  • Cyber security
  • Playing Garry’s Mod



  • Sprouts
  • Coffee
  • Unclear instructions

Aaron loves sour sweets. He can go through a whole bag in one sitting. His tongue is somehow still intact.

Sound like your kind of people?

If we haven’t scared you off and we sound like the kind of team you want to work with…
