Founder & Managing Director
Chris Wilson is Kariba’s founder and MD and has been in the publishing sector since the year dot. A former journalist and designer of the Harrogate Advertiser and numerous print-based magazines, Chris was an early ambassador of, what was then called, the ‘world wide web’ and created the very first website for Harrogate Borough Council back in the mid 90s.
Since then Kariba has grown to become one of North Yorkshire’s most reputable digital agencies and nothing makes Chris prouder than to see both clients and the Kariba team prosper and flourish through even the darkest of times.
In a previous life Chris was a semi-pro drummer with some of Harrogate’s most well known bands (Jabberwocky, MFOR, Dr Thirsty and The Nightjars). Now that he’s stopped drumming – and has his weekends back – he likes nothing more than to explore the Yorkshire Dales in his campervan with his best friend, Bilbo the labrador.
