Hi, I’m Paul Hannagen, the founder of Gastronomic Agency. I have been involved in the food and drinks industry for 15 years, as a chef, wine professional and the founder of numerous startups. Taking my knowledge and passion for building small businesses and applying it to our clients seemed like a natural fit, and something I am super passionate about! I love helping small businesses find the digital strategy that works for them and helping them grow.
Food likes: Steak, cooked properly, and BBQ, I love cooking outdoors!
Food dislikes: Smoked Haddock, the smell turns my stomach!
As CCO of the company, I like to remain behind the scenes. By background I’m a lawyer with 10 years of experience in various in-house positions, from large global groups to startups.
Food likes: I have a problematically real sweet tooth!
Food dislikes: Fatty foods that leave a layer inside your mouth.
Hi, I’m Katie! I’m in charge of some things here and there at GA, including blog content, SEO and social media.
I started several business projects during uni with my creative background. After uni, I used the funds that I gained to open up my current business selling embroidered bags which got pretty popular surprisingly. Thanks to this, I realised that I have a great passion for building businesses and making customers happy. I like to make a real difference wherever I go, and it’s easy when I love the business!
Food likes: Soup, pies, curry fishball.
Food dislikes: I’ve never tried it, but I find the concept of meatloaf a bit weird.
I’m Gastronomic Agency’s main copywriter, working on blog content, ads, website copy and email marketing. Before GA, I was a writer/researcher for a sustainable e-commerce company. And before that, my background was in design and crafts. I love switching up my tone of voice for the huge spectrum of businesses that come through our doors – the variety is what makes this job fun. Plus, I’m obsessed with food.
Food likes: Spam. If you’re not yet enlightened, try fried spam slices with kimchi, eggs and rice.
Food dislikes: Okra. Apparently you’re supposed to just embrace the sliminess?
