Owner of Direct Digital
With over 40 years invaluable experience in the marketing and advertising arena, Direct Digital owner Angela Darnell is a mighty force to be reckoned with.
One of two original founders, Angela always envisioned success in her future but admits, “never to this level”. Direct Digital currently operates in countries worldwide, with consistent, proven records of success within a competitive and challenging market.
Entering the business world at the tender age of 17, Angela has progressed ever since with countless business successes in her wake, never letting the typically male-dominated area deter her business achievements. Not unusual for Ang to work from 7am till 1am the next morning when developing businesses, dedicating all her time into making it a success, a pioneering businesswomen indeed.
Noticeable for her loud and incredibly infectious laugh, Ang has recently taken a back seat in the day-to-day running of the company allowing the ever capable CEO Adrian Reed to continue to ensure Direct Digital remains the number one digital communications network, whilst remaining a critical decision maker.
Appreciates people who are organized, willing to learn, able to act on advice given and to be vocal with their ideas encouraging the creative, collaborative and encouraging culture Direct Digital is known for. “I have always ensured that people feel relaxed, they can work hard and have fun too”.
Believes her perfectionism, hard work, loyalty and a keen understanding of others has contributed to her incredible success but admits that you always have to take chances in life and “it doesn’t hurt to be at the right place at the right time!”.
Ang enjoys keeping fit, taking walks and Pilates, as well as a little indulgence; eating, drinking and jet setting namely, Ang defines success herself as having a “happy life full of experiences” and vows to do that every single day.
