Neil – Founder &
CEO

Neil spent 20 years in commercial and online marketing for some of the best known brands globally.

In 2017 he left this world and founded RedKnows .

Today he focuses on growing the RedKnows brand and developing the business for the ever growing world class team (at least that’s what they all tell him to call them!)

Outside of work Neil is a petrolhead and general car bore, a huge Leeds United fan and coach of an under 8’s Sunday league football team, (all of whom are better at kicking the ball than he is), and a coffee snob. Since turning 40 nearly two years ago he’s also taken a more active interest in ale, and is in the process of buying a flat cap and whippet to complete the look.

He has one wife (“The current Mrs R”), two children, and a dog called Deefer. The latter is the only one who ever seems pleased to see him.

Heather – Head of
Delivery

Heather has worked in Marketing for nearly 6 years, starting out working with the Arts, Charities and Third Sector. Despite being (painfully) process driven, Heather is a creative at heart. Having trained professionally as a dancer, with her early career years being spent producing live art around the UK, including touring to Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2018, she has a flare for brand, design and all things Marketing.

As the Head of Delivery for RedKnows, Heather oversees every live client project and well as leads on delivery. Whether it’s a nitty gritty SEO restructure and strategy or a stunning rebrand, Heather and her team are with you every step of the way.

In her spare time Heather is dancing, CrossFitting, kayaking and generally just not sitting still. She is also the Chair of the Board for Autin Dance Theatre, a brilliant Independent Dance company based in Birmingham.

Heather is a people’s person and can’t wait to meet you! (Think Springer Spaniel Project Manager who’s just drank a pint of coffee).

Kate – Delivery and Design Manager

Kate has seen the recruitment industry from all angles. Firstly as a hands on recruiter within the construction and property sector, turned in-house recruitment marketer, turned graphic designer. With what once seemed like a random and unique set of career choices, actually created the perfect concoction for her to find her rightful place at RedKnows.

As the resident Delivery and Design Manager she splits her time between helping our incredible clients realise their marketing goals and fulfilling design briefs from the team, which includes anything from branding to video editing.

Outside of the RedKnows bubble Kate can be found in the gym, at a dance class or hanging upside down as part of her aerial fitness training to prepare for her back-up plan of running away and joining the circus if recruitment marketing doesn’t work out.
