About Kulea

Based at the birthplace of computing in Bletchley Park, team Kulea is made up of a dedicated following of developers, designers and marketers who have known, built and loved marketing automation solutions for nigh on a decade.
The Kulea team

Our sister company, S-Digital, pioneered MA technology in the UK, working with some of the world's largest organizations to improve their marketing efficiencies and drive sales. We've taken the lessons learnt from these experiences to create Kulea.ma; a tool that's every bit as powerful as our enterprise offering, but designed for SME businesses that have neither the resources, nor the million pound budgets of their larger competitors.

With user experience at it's very heart, kulea.ma is fast, powerful, and packed full of great features, yet remains so simple, even your Nan could use it!

Meet the team

A great product only happens with a great team behind it, and we're proud to have some of the UK's best and brightest talent on board.

Andrew Nicholson MSc

CMO

Our marketing man, fundraiser, UX geek and all round dog's body, Andrew is a hugely experienced digital marketing professional who not only runs his own consultancy, but is responsible for carving out an entirely new marketing sector – digital psychology (just Google it).  

Andrew's not done too badly in the old award stakes, having won the accolade of B2B Marketer of the year back in 2011, as well as a number of marketing accolades, including Best B2B Internal Marketing Campaign, Best Use of Email, Best Integrated Marketing Campaign and Best Marketing Campaign on a Budget.  

Andrew’s experience in product development, user experience, and customer psychology are essential components for ensuring that Kulea.ma is as usable as it is powerful.

Give this man a fish, and he'll eat for a day, give him a laptop, Photoshop and a power supply, and he'll knock you out a gorgeous fully responsive website in a week.

Pete Waller

Pete Waller

Solution architect

Pete bridges the gap between Kulea's brains and beauty - with a deep understanding of the technology behind the scenes, and an eye for front-end design and user experience.  We've given him the role of solution architect, as frankly, anything else just feels like lip service to his broad-ranging skill set.

Customer support

If you want something doing quickly, give it to Andrew, if you want it done right, give it to Vicky.  So says our office law (it's also a local council by-law - promise), and Vicky's meticulous eye for detail and practical approach to problem-solving means she's an irreplaceable asset for our team and our customers alike.

She'll be your helping hand, your shoulder to cry on, and a light in the dark.

Ollie is our university intern, and spends his days writing our gripping blog articles and ensuring our social media posts are up to date and relevant.  We're desperately hoping Ollie is the exception to the rule about never giving your Facebook account to the intern, and he's trying to prove us right every day.  Good lad!
