Partner, Consumer & Creative
With more than twenty-years communications experience, I have a breadth of practice that enables me to lead our team of savvy consumer and creative specialists to deliver smart, impactful work for our clients. Equally comfortable running strategic media relations projects, brand launches or purpose-led campaigns. I love the art of storytelling – bringing talent and collaborators together through my networks, to find solutions to our clients’ needs that drive business results and engage consumers. Outside Pead, I’m the co-owner of awarding-winning wine and mezcal bar La Fuente with my husband.
Partner, Consumer & Sponsorships
I’m a solution focussed consultant and love finding innovative and creative ways of solving communications challenges in partnership with my clients. My team will tell you I’m a bit like a Jack Russell on the hunt – determined to turn any challenge into an opportunity. Collaboration is built into my working style, which is something I’ve learnt from working with diverse clients across a range of industries from technology to fashion. I’m hands-on and use my skills in integrated communications, campaign development and execution, issues management and media relations to deliver results.
Partner, Corporate & Digital
I lead a phenomenal team of corporate communications, digital and social specialists that deliver activity with credibility and impact. I have a deep love of agency PR, and like nothing more than getting my head around complex problems to deliver business results for clients My core skills lie in corporate communications, with a strong background in issues and stakeholder engagement. I’ve worked across a broad range of sectors, but particularly in financial services, publicly listed, technology, healthcare and primary industries.
I’m privileged to lead an exceptional corporate team full of intelligent, strategic, caring professionals. I’m passionate about creating communications strategies that provoke action and achieve business goals. I’m not interested in ticking boxes if they don’t generate results. I’m always calm under pressure, I deeply value relationships and I’m at my best when solving complex communications challenges. I have experience in nearly every sector, but I have a particular love for work in technology, sustainability, health and all things business. I am a loving husband to Megan and father to Max, Leo and Flo.
I’m in charge of the till at Pead. I make sure we are fiscally sound and ensure Pead is well-positioned with expert financial guidance to succeed in the ever-changing PR/comms industry. While the wider team will impress with their PR skills and great networks, I can spot a number out of place at twenty paces. Everything relating to accounts, invoicing, payments, budgeting and forecasting is my empire. The team fear my budgeting check-ups and my no surprises policy. I enjoy meeting clients online via emails or video for finance related matters. I’m happiest when everyone pays their invoice on time.

I am proud of our work and our formidable team of partners and senior practitioners, and I enjoy the freedom to dip in and out of accounts and to help grow our fresh new talent. I prefer to do this over lunch. In fact, some of my best work has been done over lunch. I believe I have perfected the art of the PR lunch.
