Parry is a well-known digital marketing dude. He has worked with countless brands and media outlets to help them optimise their online results, and is one of the world’s leading experts on email marketing (which he blogs about here sometimes.) He started his career coding middleware for CRM software, then sent out millions of emails for global brands, before running the strategy department for an ESP. He holds a BBA (1st) in Marketing & Statistics and can probably beat you in an Excel-off. On weekends, he helps wayward youths see the error of their ways through the magic of interpretive dance.

Neil holds a PhD in Computer Science and was granted a prestigious innovation award. He has written over a dozen academic publications, a book on data mining, and holds several patents. Phrasee’s market-leading learning engine is the culmination of his experience and passion for machine learning. When not working, Neil is likely in a country you couldn’t find on a map, alongside his wife and sons.
