The Problem

Click fraud isn’t defined to any one industry, or any one geographic location. It happens all over the globe, across all industries. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The fraudsters never stop. A recent study by Fortune.com attempting to investigate the scale of the bot-net and click fraud problem identified that less than half of all online paid advertising is ever seen by a human user.

Over the past 10 years the rate of click fraud has increased by an estimated 150%, and estimated annual losses have skyrocketed from around $6 billion to over $16 billion. Even worse: In some of the hardest-hit industries, up to 60% of all clicks are identified as fraudulent or coming from non-human sources.

Our Team

Neil Andrew Managing Director

Neil Andrew

Managing Director

Neil is the customer acquisition manager & managing director at PPC Protect and spends a lot of time advertising our service on Reddit, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

When he’s not managing our PPC ads and speaking to clients, Neil can be found watching Braveheart and drinking Irn Bru. He recently bought 500 cans off Amazon after the company announced they were stopping production of the original. Sometimes he likes to leave full opened cans of Coke and Pepsi around the office to show everyone how much he disapproves.

Although he’s Scottish, Neil doesn’t have a Scottish accent so we hope you’ll have no trouble understanding what he’s saying.

Alex Winston Creative Director

Alexander Winston

UX, Design & Office Manager

Known for his love of fashion (and the colour pink) and colourful hair, Alex can be found showcasing the latest Hollister collection in the office. When he’s not taking advantage of Hollister’s 50% off deals, he runs the business by cracking his whip.

Alex previously ran his own marketing agency before realising the scale of click fraud on his clients. He then used his management skills to create a team of exceptionally skilled individuals to tackle this global problem.

Throughout the day you can find him working hard at his desk while arranging his Pop Vinyl collection and listening to Justin Bieber. We hope he approves of this bio or it might be too late to say sorry!

Segev Hochberg Customer Relations

Segev Hochberg

Customer Relations Director

Segev has a hands on job with our customers dealing with their support queries, running our affiliate program and ensuring the onboarding process is as smooth as possible.

When he’s not answering customers questions, Segev likes to throw some serious shapes at festivals such as Tomorrowland. If you’re a big fan of trance and Armin Van Buuren then Segev will happily spend hours telling you all his favorite tracks.

Segev also likes to spend a lot of time travelling around the world leaning other cultures and eating lots of food. He regularly ends up having his flights delayed or cancelled which probably explains why he spends so much time on FPS games like Call of Duty.

Andrew Swindlehurst System Admin

Andrew Swindlehurst

Data Analyst

Andrew is our Data Analyst here at PPC Protect. He’s currently the tallest person in the office at 6 foot 4, but it’s not like he brags about it or anything.

One of Andrew’s greatest tricks is fitting into a Toyota IQ. If you’ve ever seen Jeremy Clarkson fit into a Reliant Robin, then you should know how impressive it is. He’s also got a masters degree in Physics which means he’s supposed to be intelligent. We’ll let you be the judge of that.

Since Andrew spends most of his time running around the office and managing our systems, he often wears green running shoes to work. As you can imagine, they’re real head turners.

Simon EU Head

Simon Allais

Business Development (EU)

Having run multiple IT companies in Belgium, Simon is head of our business development in Europe and is responsible for helping European clients fight back against click fraud. Being fluent in several languages including English, Dutch, German, French and Flemish, Simon is basically an advanced version of Google translate.

To relax, Simon enjoys cooking mouthwatering steaks and sharing the pictures with us on Slack. Known as his weekly steak ritual, it involves a whole lot of meat, cracking a cold one and his trusty aviators.

Osman Karabulut HR Manager

Osman Karabulut

HR Manager

Osman is our HR manager here at PPC Protect and is responsible for recruitment and making sure everyone is happy. Considering he plays a lot of the support role in League of Legends we think he’s pretty good at keeping people happy.

If you speak Turkish and need help with our service, then Osman is your man. Having lived in the country for several years he pretty much knows the country and language inside out. Eventually he decided to trade the sun and sand for the tropical climate of Manchester, which makes us question his sanity.

When not doing his HR duties or translating conversations, Osman likes to enjoy epic 10 hour sessions of Dungeons and Dragons, playing video games and writing his latest epic novel.

sam carr fraud analyst

Sam Carr

Marketing Manager

Sam heads our marketing department, responsible for ensuring our campaigns reach the right people. He’s responsible for all inbound marketing and content on our site. His other duties include being the office joker, supplying us with the most wholesome of memes and ensuring that the office doesn’t lose its lighthearted and productive tone.

When he’s not doing SEO, Sam can be found utilising his creative talents by writing content for our website, or he might be found consuming his weight in pasties and pies.

Sam spends his free time watching movies and browsing Imgur for cute dog pictures to spam his friends with. He also enjoys unwinding after a long days work by playing a few matches of Overwatch; Which goes to show how patient he is, since most people would find getting yelled at by random strangers counterproductive when trying to relax.

Nicolas Moreau developer

Nicolas Moreau

Developer

Nicolas is one of our clever clog developers here at PPC Protect. If anything ever breaks in the dashboard, then he’s probably to blame. But don’t worry, he’s also good at fixing things!

When not typing thousands of 0’s and 1’s into Notepad and pushing it to Git, Nicolas can be found enjoying a delicious platter of frog’s legs, cheese, and wine (red of course). Also in his spare time he also likes to practice taking mugshot photos of himself. As you can see, he’s become pretty good at it.

Be sure to never speak to Nicolas about football or even mention the words: world, cup. You’ll only end up listening to a (rather boring) story about how he always knew France would win and he never doubted them.

Laurens developer

Laurens Monstrey

Full Stack Developer

Laurens (not to be confused with Lawrence, Lauren or Loren), is our front end developer at PPC Protect and is responsible for maintaining the functionality of the dashboard along with Nicolas. Rumour has it he uses two keyboards to type and has an average WPM of 414, but his productivity is often halted by his cat sitting on his keyboard (allegedly).

When he’s not feeding Spike the cat or rubbing his face over the keyboard, Laurens enjoys playing every video game you can imagine. From PUBG to Fortnite, you’ll often find him flossing and dabbing after every win. We’re not sure if he’s good enough to be a streamer, but when you’re up against 99 ten-year-old kids, we would hope so.
