Janelle Drummond

Account Director

Original South Londoner and self-proclaimed PR pro. Former Champagne expert with a qualification in wine. Addicted to house renovating, The Office and totally pointless celebrity gossip.


Katie Tazzyman

Account Director

First-ever female Girl Scout in Kent with suitably super-charged organisational skills. A gin-lover from Margate, makes perfect pancakes and bangs out a dancefloor butterfly better than Beyoncé.


Peter Hutton

Senior Account Manager

Yorkshire-bred, music lover, office playlister, culture addict, deft designer and client manager extraordinaire. Once called ‘perverted’ by Grace Jones because he is British. Loves a dirty martini, hates nuts.


Tim Harfield

Account Manager

Six-foot-four-inch PR powerhouse from Macclesfield with magnificent hair. Former model who was quite literally very big in Japan. Loves music and footy. His happy place is the hairdressers. 

Gabriella Hooper.png

Gabriella Hooper

Senior Account Executive

Aka the Australian duchess of sunshine and salt, serial chips and salsa stealer, and not-so-subtle journalist stalker. May be found in the latest and greatest bars, most likely requesting for the poor DJ to play disco for hours.

Joe Howells

Account Executive

Journalism graduate, youngest fox. So young he once admitted to not ‘getting’ the Stone Roses, a dangerous confession around here. Manages a distillery experience & fantasy football team with equal commitment.

Pete E_website 3.jpg

Pete Edmonston

Account Executive

Former dolphin-whisperer in Egypt. Lover of obscure music, record collector and DJ, runs club nights just for fun. Renowned for good vibes and big smile on his face all the time.


Sherry Fowler


Hardcore gin queen, accounts guru, book-balancer, expense-approver, invoice issuer and chaser. Don't mess. BB the office dog usually under her desk or never far from her side.
