I am an Account director at Gather, responsible for the management and delivery of projects.
I started my career in South Africa, working in the corporate communications department at Anglo American, producing their corporate reports and those of their subsidiaries, before leaving to start my own agency. I successfully continued to produce and deliver corporate and marketing collateral for 10 years before returning to the UK in 2009.
Since then, I have worked as an Account director for large corporate reporting agencies in London, before joining Gather. I have managed annual report projects for the London Stock Exchange, U+I, St Modwen, Swiss Re, RSA, ICAP, Essentra and National Express, successfully delivering print and digital reports.
I enjoy ensuring that projects run on an even keel and find that keeping a sense of humour during the busy times helps dissipate some of the tension (most of the time). I also have a curious thrill when I find a typo (prior to print obviously).
