Meet the team

We share a passion for the ocean and a belief in the power of creative communication.

The Ocean Agency was founded by a team of ex-advertisers who thought they could put their skills to better use.  In the last few years we've brought together some of the world's leading communicators, scientists, innovators and creatives to all work together on our exciting projects. 



Richard Vevers Tate is the founder and CEO of The Ocean Agency in the US and Australia. Drawing on over a decade of experience at top London advertising agencies, Richard’s work is a blend of cutting-edge technology, unconventional partnerships, and savvy communications. Richard’s success in revealing the impact of climate change on coral reefs is the subject of a Netflix Original Documentary, Chasing Coral


What guides us

The Ocean Agency is driven by our mission. It guides every decision we make and every action we take. We are a small (but highly motivated and mighty) team that finds innovative solutions to make the impossible, possible – doing whatever it takes.
