Sascha co-founded Canvas with Antony is 2013. Over the previous 15 years Sascha led a number of start-up companies, from online restaurant guides back in the days of 56k dial-up, to combating climate change by greening offices. With a background in organisational change and people development, Sascha brings a wealth of experience in team development, sales, management and strategy; creating company cultures that foster creativity and innovation during rapid change. Sascha is dedicated to yoga practice, and if he isn’t in London, he’s probably in Bali "conducting important research".
Antony runs our sister company The Collective – the UK’s largest film location agency – and co-founded Canvas with Sascha in 2013 after being inundated with requests to hold private events in our film locations. Antony started out as a Location Runner and then Location Assistant, and over the last 13 years has uncovered some of the most prestigious and in-demand spaces in the film and photography industries. He has a passion for architecture and design, as well as a slightly suspicious curiosity for what lurks behind London’s closed doors.
Chris is our Sales Account Manager and drives the acquisition of exciting new venues onto the platform. Before Canvas he worked at Horizon Teachers as a Senior Recruitment Consultant. Chris enjoys watching football, particularly when West Ham win (although this can be a rare sighting) and is a dedicated rock & metal fan who is going to Download festival for the third year on the trot. Chris famously jumped off a waterfall in St Lucia in 2005 but has failed to do so since.
Zoe is our Customer Support assistant and she helps with all the day-to-day questions from our users, helps get new users set up on the platform and oversees our billings system. Before Canvas, Zoe worked at as a Groups Reservations Coordinator, with IHG Hotels. In her spare time Zoe enjoys going for nature walks with her Frenchie, Boo, and her 2 year old. An interesting fact about Zoe is she has no sense of direction, and gets lost on an almost daily basis.
