Quirk recently sold a controlling interest to global communications giant WPP
Besides finding blissful enjoyment in serious amounts of late nights and hard work, our very own Rob Stokes has also found a way to use his hilarious and gregarious nature to power the turbines of the QuirkStation
. Initially, it began in Rob's bedroom, with only the voices inside his head to keep him company. But the growth of Rob's ideas was inevitable. They crept out of his bedroom into his lounge, and then all the way to a warehouse in Cape Town and then to offices in London and Johannesburg.
While studying a Business Science Degree at UCT
in the 90s, Rob's love for both technology and marketing
merged in his Marketing Honours Thesis which focused on the topic of Email Marketing
. His vision for taking online marketing to the world was the beginning of Quirk eMarketing as we know it today.
Energetic, inspired and dedicated to motivating people and empowering them - especially whilst wearing the famous (or is it infamous) tight white cricket shorts - Rob manages to bring these qualities to both clients and staff. He has filled the Quirk Station with Stars who have created a formidable eMarketing machine
with an international client base
