Meet the team

David Wilsher

David set up OWL inc in 2013 after a longer-than-he-would-care-to-admit career Project Managing, Producing and Resourcing some of the best creative ad agencies in London and New York. Backed by this experience and an innate curiosity of people and creativity he set out build a recruitment business with the most important attribute of creative businesses at it's heart - their talent. 


He is keen to point out it is not called OWL because he looks a bit like an owl. 

Neil Mitra


Since coming to London from his native North East Neil has been working in recruitment for over 10 years and was owner of Dylan Recruitment specialising in Client Services and Strategy roles.
