Proudly announcing that one of our members, a full-service marketing agency, Major Tom has today announced its new President and CEO.
Lyn Bryan will be officially taking over as Major Tom’s new Chief Executive Officer which is an evolution of her previous role as Managing Partner. Lyn has been working across the agency in both its current and previous incarnation since she first knocked on their door 13 years ago with design portfolio in-hand.
Working with a diverse roster of talented professionals and big brand businesses and responsible for all aspects of the business, Lyn facilitates Major Tom’s journey towards its big-picture goals. Originally from Northern Ireland, Lyn graduated with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Interactive Design from Northumbria University, England. In one of her first big projects as CEO, Lyn is currently integrating the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) across the agency’s three offices.
Miles Sellyn has also been named as Major Tom’s President. His previous role was Partner and VP of Strategy and Creative. At 28 years old, and with an English Language and Literature degree from the University of British Columbia, he is a visionary who is passionate about Major Tom’s culture and the creation of unique strategies for our partners.

Miles is one of the brightest talents on the agency landscape and was also one of the driving forces behind the agency’s recent merger of 6S Marketing and Drive Digital and their rebrand to “Major Tom.” In his new position Miles will focus on developing and executing innovative digital strategies that transform organizations and drive growth, while keeping his eyes on the horizon of the agency’s future.
Major Tom’s CEO, Lyn Bryan says,
After more than a decade of working at all levels within the organization, I have seen our group grow from five to eighty-six and counting. The merge and rebrand to Major Tom was a natural step and I’m incredibly proud of what we have accomplished. Our focus since day one has been to leverage new tactics and technologies to help our clients succeed in today’s ever-changing marketing landscape, and I look forward to continuing that mission.
Miles Sellyn, after being named President at Major Tom, commented,
It’s never been easier to get your message out to the world, but the true challenge is ensuring that message resonates with the right people. Our focus is to help our partners cut through the noise to find innovative solutions across our various service areas and drive impactful results.
Marrying top-level strategic consultancy and impeccable execution across the full spectrum of marketing services, Major Tom boasts an enviable roster of international clients that includes NYU, MPAA, Cirque du Soleil, NBC, Orkin, KPMG, and Bulletproof.
The organization was started by Founding Partners Chris Breikss and John Blown who will continue to influence the development of the agency moving forward, in their roles as Founding Partners. To that end, Breikss has relocated to Major Tom’s Toronto office as of November 2018 to help support the agency’s rapid expansion across all sectors.
Breikss had previously opened Major Tom’s Office in New York City (located at 33rd and Madison Ave.), and participated in the Canadian Technology Accelerator NYC while living there from 2014-2016.
Chris Breikss also commented,
We opened the Toronto office in 2011 and have grown steadily to 18 full-time staff. Our business is growing rapidly in the East and we felt that having a founder relocate there would help bridge culture and vision across the organization.
John Blown continues to lead and mentor the leadership team as a Founding Partner and is heading up initiatives related to finance, M&A and office space. John also leads our philanthropic and charity related initiatives and is based in our Vancouver office.
The changes to the senior leadership team follow off of the back of the significant expansion Major Tom has experienced since the merge. Major Tom formed after a merger between award-winning agencies 6S Marketing and Drive Digital earlier this year and relocated their Vancouver team to a fully renovated `10,000+ sq. ft. studio in Vancouver’s historic Gastown district.
