Meet the team

Founded on passion and drive

Every start-up has a story and BGFG is no different. It usually starts over a coffee and a follow-up email and before you know it minds have come together in a brand-new creative office space with new people joining our team all the time. Let’s meet the guys who had that coffee.

Will Blears

CSO / Co-Founder

Will is an online entrepreneur, avid gamer and tech head having spent most of his teens building online businesses, building and upgrading PCs, and playing lots and lots of Counter Strike. The combination has led him to where he is today, building a thriving media publishing business in an industry that he loves.

These days Will focuses on the strategic element of BGFG. We think it’s his love for RTS games that helps him foresee future opportunities that BGFG can build on. As well as this, he is currently grinding away on Amazon’s latest release New World. 

Will has more than 15 years of experience in the digital space. Having previously built and exited seven-figure businesses he is extremely excited to see how far the team can take BGFG.

Andrew Kirkcaldy

CEO / Co-Founder

Andrew has been a passionate gaming and tech head from childhood, tinkering with the ZX Spectrum, Amiga 2000 and one of the original Intel Pentiums to name a few. Before Wi-Fi for network gaming he had to lean out of the top-floor window to pass the parallel cable to the next door neighbour. He spent more time debugging connection issues and reinstalling Windows for the nth time to get a game to work than actually playing… those were the days!

Andrew has over 16 years in brand, digital marketing and e-commerce. He spent his formative years at AO.com running the Brand and Digital Marketing teams. Now he is turning his hand to the digital publishing sector in an area that he is very passionate about. Who said mixing work and pleasure is not a good thing?

Craig Kirkcaldy

COO / Co-Founder

Craig has always been a gamer and tech nerd. From the good old days of the BBC Micro playing Elite, to holding his brother’s legs as he hung out of the third floor window to get them connected next door to play Dune.

Fast forward 30 years and… well it’s the same story. Craig has over 20 years of experience in Project and Operational management. Having worked around the world for more than eight years, he always wanted to come back to the UK and build a company around his passions and, of course, work with his brother… It turns out they’re actually a great team!

BGFG HQ

Take an office tour

We didn’t really like the office spaces we saw when we outgrew our last one – so we built our own. At the end of lockdown we opened up our new premises and then things really started to get exciting.

From games areas to collaborative spaces to the office bar, not to mention free snacks and drinks 24/7 we think we have created an office that isn’t like any other. We have created an office that is simply By Gamers for Gamers. We love it and we think you will too.

Life in Manchester

If you aren’t from here then you’ll probably know about our great music, great nightlife, and world-class football – but that’s just what the Tourist Information Centres will tell you. There’s a reason Manchester has just been named the third best city in the world by Time Out, behind San Francisco and Amsterdam (and we are still trying to get the founders to open offices there too!).

In case you were wondering, London was 13th. New York was 5th.

So from Canal Street to the Arndale Centre, the National Football Museum to the Imperial War Museum North, you need to see Manchester the way the rest of the world sees it – an amazing place to further your career.

City & Countryside

Manchester has the best of both worlds – the bustle and the nightlife, all packaged in a compact city you can walk around, with beautiful countryside within touching distance.

Birthplace of the Hacienda and acid house music and the music scene that followed you can be soaking up the atmosphere in the city centre at midday and be out in the countryside 30 minutes later. With its central location now only two hours away from London it’s even closer to amazing scenery in the Lake District and Peak District if you want to get away from the daily hustle and bustle.

Help with relocaion

If we’ve convinced you that Manchester should be your next home, and you’re the right fit for us, we’ll do our best to make your move to BGFG as smooth as is humanly possible. We’ll help you find your perfect home away from the office and we’ll help with the cost of getting your life and career set-up around you.
