MEET EXCELLENT. VOICEOVER ARTISTS. AGENTS. CREATIVE CLIENTS.

Our history

Excellent was founded by two brothers - Jon who was already a Radio/TV Presenter and voice over - having established a successful commercial career after working as an announcer for Channel 4 TV - and his brother Pete, who had just graduated from York University. Initially created because they recognised that the industry was now working 24/7 and there was the requirement to choose a voice outside normal working hours, using a digital process, instead of waiting for clueless couriers to deliver a batch of cassette tapes. We have always tried to use technology to speed up the efficiency and ease with which clients can cast a voice and that has always been to our benefit, with other agencies copying our processes soon afterwards. We like to lead from the front - after all we have a name to live up to!
