PJ Ellis


PJ is one of our Directors.

Having read Law at the University of Birmingham, and then practising as a solicitor for 7 years, PJ has now been in the digital world for over 6 years. He was the founder of social media agency, Blake7, which merged with Lightbox in the summer of 2018.

An advocate of all things Brum (and for his sins a Birmingham City FC fan), PJ also co-founded the charity LoveBrum in 2014, which shines a light on the “hidden gem” projects of our wonderful city. He mentors entrepreneurs, has helped raise over £1m worth of funding for start-up businesses, is a Director of the Birmingham Law Society and sits on the advisory board of BPS Leaders, TedX and the English Schools Football Association.

He recently received a Points of Light award from the Prime Minister, which recognises outstanding UK volunteers in their community.

His passions away from Birmingham and Digital are his family, football and ibiza. Oh, and maybe the odd KFC here and there.

I know "awesome" when I see it and the people at Lightbox are just that. Not only brilliant creatives, marketeers and technicians, the people are also lovely, awesome, human beings.
