Dan Telling

Dan – Managing Director

Dan originally came up with the ethos for Bench in response to seeing so many companies confused and concerned about the rapid advance in technology, the growth of data from big to small, constantly evolving customer views and expectations, and many more.

He launched Bench to answer those challenges and support clients through their transformation journey.

Over the past 25 years he has gained experience of providing solutions to a variety of technical and business challenges across a wide variety of sectors. He has helped to shape and provide solutions for clients ranging from Fiat, Kwikfit, Volvo, GSK, JLR, Sainsbury’s, John Lewis, Unibet, ESI Media, Johnston Press, Ryanair and many more.

He has worked in partnership with many large technology vendors including IBM, Adobe, SAS, Pitney Bowes, and Microsoft.
Dan specialises in providing practical data and technology solutions as an answer to complex marketing and business challenges to help organisations transform and drive value.

When it comes to favourite holiday destinations, Dan is always happiest when skiing or messing about in the water, and he would never sit still on the beach… sandcastles all the way! In his free time, he watches most sports – as a 3rd generation Bristol City supporter, Dan didn’t have a choice. On a Sunday, he hangs out with his kids, and watches his son play football when there is a match on.
