FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE TALENT MANAGERS AND STAFF BEHIND THE OP MEDIA ROSTER

LIAM CHIVERS

MANAGING DIRECTOR

One of the first entrepreneurs to truly recognise the commercial power of digital creators, Liam Chivers founded OP after a successful decade as Sales Director at Bertelsmann and a chance encounter with (a then relatively unknown) Ali-A at a gaming expo.

Over the years, Liam has become a well known face and go-to within the influencer industry thanks in no small part to the huge amount of brand campaigns he has led on and the effort he has put in to educate brands on the influencers that OP represent and how to optimise their collaborations with them.
