Tom Dyson Technical Director & Managing Director
Tom graduated from Balliol College, Oxford, in 1995, swapping the later philosophy of Wittgenstein for Netscape 2 and a 9600 baud modem. He ran a little agency called Naïve, until he joined forces with Olly in 2000, starting Torchbox with the aim of building beautiful online software for people who make the world a better place.
As Technical Director, Tom is responsible for making sure the things we build are fast and reliable and easy to maintain. He manages the tech team and account directs many of our large technical projects. Along with Olly, Tom tries to make Torchbox a fun and inspiring place to work.
Tom lives with his family in the countryside. He reads novels and gets cross at tennis. He plays in three bands who will probably never make it. He composed the theme tune to Charlie and Lola.
Olly Willans Creative Director & Managing Director
Olly is ultimately responsible for the design, digital strategy, user experience, and information architecture work at Torchbox. Along with Tom, Olly also fulfils the role of MD at Torchbox.
Olly ensures that Torchbox doesn't just meet expectations in our projects, but exceeds them. And, after sixteen years, Olly is just as excited about the Internet's potential as a force for social good as he was in the first dot-com days.
Olly is a married dad of three. He enjoys sports (cycling, skiing, tennis, cricket, squash), and dabbles with am-dram! He is currently rehearsing for a much-anticipated role as the Sheriff of Nottingham, in the Northmoor Village pantomime. To the shame of his son and father-in-law, Olly is only a half-hearted Manchester United supporter.
