Agency Hackers has listed Chris Chilton, Orchard’s Managing Director – Finance and Operations, in its Operations Index Top 50 list for 2024. The list celebrates operations leaders in independent agencies having a positive impact on their business.   

Agency Hackers is a membership community which unites creative agencies, sharing knowledge among credible businesses. Entries were judged by Ryan McNamara, Head of Operations at Rise at Seven, a top creative agency known for supporting brands such as Xbox and B&Q. 

Chris made the list from over 350 entries from agencies in the UK and Crown Dependencies, and was singled out for his steadfast ingenuity, rising above complex challenges and for modernising Orchard through strategic tech investments. The judge also remarked on how Chris readied the agency for remote operations, spearheading impressive growth while exhibiting unrivalled finance and operations leadership.  

Brooke Kenyon, Orchard’s Managing Director – Strategy and Agency Growth, said:

“We were beyond excited to have received news of Chris’s listing at a time when Orchard is making big strides in our brand growth and development across the Channel Islands. Being singled out for our operations as an agency also demonstrates the sophistication of our business model and how we constantly look to evolve to best serve our clients now and in the future.   

“We are very proud of Chris’s achievement and grateful for all that he does to drive our business towards even greater success.”
