Barketing Department


Meet Romeo! He started at Buckingham Futures in 2017 as a Trainee Barketer and has worked his way up to Head of Barketing. At the office, you can usually find him sitting next to anyone who is eating, curled up in a corner, or making himself at home on an office chair. He is pretty hopeless when it comes to his turn to make the coffee, but he makes up for it by being a good reason for his human colleagues to get some fresh air and when he needs to 'nip out'. Outside of work, Romeo is a big fan of barking, digging, swimming and chewing his favourite toys.
