Introducing the Tide 55 team.

The digital marketing experts on your side.

Whilst the majority of work is carried out by our full time team (below), we additionally have a small and trusted network of local freelancers that we call upon for certain specialist projects (ALWAYS led by us).

Tommy Gentleman

CEO and Founder

Tommy founded Tide 55 from his garage during the 2020 lockdown.

Having spent over 10 years as a fitness professional and coach, he decided to pass the torch on his gym and go all in to follow his passion for digital marketing.

His role day to day is to work on overall marketing strategy, advertising campaigns and the overall direction of the business.

Tommy brings a fresh and unique approach to marketing and believes that all business is “Human to Human”.

Kendall Steventon


Kendall is at the heart of all things Tide 55.

Her array of skills make it rare for a project to run without her input somewhere along the lines! 

She is involved with ad campaigns, email strategy, websites, and works closely with all of our clients and the team to keep all projects running smoothly.

Kendall knows how to dig in and work hard, but she also knows how to have fun along the way!

If only her name was Isla, we’d be a full set…


Darci Black


Darci joined the company in April 2021 and since then has been responsible for literally millions of social graphics and captions, as well as expert blog posts and PR pieces. 

As a true whiz with words, she also helps with developing, editing and optimising website copy, utilising key SEO skills and knowledge!

Darci is a real pro at finding out the key information of a business or industry, learning quickly and then writing valuable content to help connect more customers to our clients. She has a degree in Journalism and a creative streak that produces “on-point” brand content every single day!
