Experienced Leadership

Hotwire's UK Office is led by experienced comms and business consultants with decades of expertise, skilled at unlocking clients’ unrealised possibilities.

I’m Hotwire’s UK MD which means I’m responsible for the London office and our team of over 80 staff. And don’t let the American accent fool you, I’ve spent the last six years in London running the UK arm of Text 100 having originally joined them over in New York. Before that I was client side working for Samsung North America. My passion is working with brands to help them solve business challenges. My experience spans both B2B and consumer and I’ve worked with a large variety of top brands including Coca-Cola, Vodafone, Samsung, MTV, British Airways, IBM, Cisco, CNN and Sony.

My career in the public relations industry began in 2003 when I joined Burson Marsteller as Finance Director in their London office. I have a real passion for developing and supporting commercial relationships and a proven track record in supporting client teams to win and retain business.

Before that, I worked client side in various senior marketing roles, including CMO for two tech start-ups and senior marketing positions across both B2B and B2B organisations and brands (IBM, BBC, Hard Rock Café, Pepsi).
