Greg Bechly

Managing Director (Owner)

Not many people know that it was Greg who called the first ever meeting to create the agency that became March One.

Greg had a ‘Jerry Maguire Moment’ after tossing and turning one night, worried about his job, where he was heading and what kind of world he was creating. He invited Russell and Ben to an impromptu meeting after work the next day…and March One was born.

Greg’s next epiphany came after seeing how much time and treasure so many causes spent on acquiring new donors, only to lose them soon after. Now his mission is to help clients transform donors into true believers, creating relationships for life.

That’s the kind of human Greg is. He rolls up his sleeves and gets involved. Quickly appraising a situation, identifying what needs need attention, and bringing people together to focus on how to solve the problem.

Greg’s excited by the range of clients we get to work with each day and that each of you also share his passion for helping people.

And where would you find Greg when he’s not working?

“I’m either in the workshop crafting my wooden dinghies or on the harbour sailing them.”

Ben Coverdale / Creative Director (Owner)

Ben Coverdale

Creative Director (Owner)

It was New Years Day 2000 when Ben made the big decision to chuck in his job as an electrician and follow his childhood dream to study and work in creativity. It only took 14 years, six agencies, three relocations, two degrees (Bus Mkg & Ecc), and his last dollar. But today he is a proud Owner and Creative Director of a fundraising agency on the rise…and he couldn’t be happier.

Ben is known within the industry for his knack for finding the story in every brief and telling it in a compelling way. He follows his creative process religiously, using it to simplify and emotify every communication in ways that turn donors into true believers.

As a Creative Director, Ben is honoured to use his ideas to help people. He respects that solid ideas can only be found in hard yards and works that much harder to reach the right idea for each and every brief you give him.

And where would you find Ben when he’s not working?

“You’ll probably find me in or beside the ocean on the world’s most incredible playground, the Central Coast.”

Russell Moverley / Creative Director (Owner)

Russell Moverley

Creative Director (Owner)

After working in advertising around Australia and in Europe, Russell found himself in a Sydney agency with Ben and Greg. Unbeknownst to him, this was the team that would purpose his skills towards a higher cause, i.e. helping people.

Russell has a knack for visual and physical creation. If you need to bring an idea to life he’ll build it, but in the way it works best.

It can be beautiful or what Russ calls beautifully ugly. It doesn’t matter. As long as the idea is communicated and the results are good, he’s happy.

This passion for and knowledge of design means he can translate complex ideas into campaigns people like. He uses aesthetics and is keenly aware of the biological effect they have on people’s behaviour.

Unlike most Creative Directors who dream of making the next big campaign and selling the next big widget, Russell hopes his ideas and designs can help to make the world a better place.

And where would you find Russell when he’s not working?

“You will find me appreciating life — designing and drawing, making furniture, doing the gardening, or enjoying food and wine with friends and family.”
