Head of Operations, lifeline for deadlines and project-manager of project-managers across four continents. impervious to stress, professional tea drinker and a more than decent giver of high-fives.
Wesley ter Haar is the Founding Monk of MediaMonks. He co-founded the company in 2001 to wage war on mediocre digital production, working tirelessly to grow MediaMonks into a creative production powerhouse with global reach and recognition. As of 2018, MediaMonks employs 750 Monks spread across 11 offices around the world.
Working from MediaMonks’ LA office, Wesley acts as MediaMonks’ COO, making him a self-described ‘lifeline for deadlines’ and ‘Project Manager of Project Managers’. Next to MediaMonks, Wesley sits on the boards of SoDA and S4 Capital, alongside Sir Martin Sorrell.

MediaMonks works with and for advertising agencies to craft amazing digital work for global brands. We have over a decade of digital experience, offices in Amsterdam, London, New York, Singapore and Los Angeles and 250 Motivated Monks versed in a wide range of digital disciplines.
Our in-house production team is experienced in pretty much anything you could possibly throw at a digital campaign. This includes game & mobile development and MediaMonks Film, our industry standard film production house.
Our work has been awarded by, and recognized at the FWA, Cannes Lions, BIMA, the Webbies, the Lovies and many others. And while it’s not something we like to brag about, it is the most tangible testament to the love, dedication and eye for detail we bring to our projects.
