MEET THE TEAM
Sarah, Conker’s founder, has transformed the company from a 2007 start-up to an integrated marketing agency with scores of successful campaigns to its name.
Creative, resourceful and a natural born wordsmith, Sarah started her career in international marketing for a global B2B organisation, then served her time agency-side before taking the plunge & setting up Conker.
Sarah is a proud Mum of two little Conkers-in-training, who have been known to spark some stellar campaign ideas themselves. When she’s not out and about on client and Conker missions, Sarah’s idea of bliss is family time…ideally spent soaking up the sun or shooting down the ski slopes.
Martin joined team Conker in 2015, bringing a varied skill set, together with client-side board level experience, to the mix. In his element when surrounded by stats & spreadsheets or working on marketing analytics and measurement, Martin spearheads Conker’s business consultancy services and he’s a creative powerhouse too!
Martin’s our sports & outdoors meister. You’ll catch him at the weekend on the tennis court, mountain biking on tricky terrain, taking the kids to Taekwondo or at Valley Parade supporting his beloved Bradford City. Who better to ensure that you’re getting the most from your marketing budget than a Yorkshireman with an MBA?
Where do we start with Sue? Maybe her stellar track record in PR & marketing for household name super brands, SMEs and start- ups alike. Or, how our clients reap the rewards of her creativity, her unrelenting persistence & encyclopaedic recall of media contacts and columns! Sue readily admits she’s slightly obsessive about keeping one step ahead of media moves & marketing innovation!
When Sue realised that she couldn’t carve a meaningful career in pub quizzes or Scrabble tournaments, PR was a natural calling. Away from the office Sue’s a proud Mum to a teenage son who shares her love of nerdy words and The Northern Lake District.
Every agency should have a Hannah, a home-grown Conker talent who is an accomplished marketing professional with meticulous organisational skills, a prodigious work rate and a genuine flair for a wide range of digital and traditional marketing disciplines. Quietly determined to deliver only the very best for her clients, Hannah is immensely proud of her Welsh roots (especially during the Six Nations).
Our Celtic colleague is Conker’s very own globetrotter, with a six months’ stint in Tanzania under her belt. Away from the office Hannah makes a lemon drizzle to beat all others and also rocks up at her local climbing club most weeks.
Emily is our social supremo and content creator whose chameleon-like copy is pure poetry, written in whatever style suits our clients & their businesses! Returning to the North following a tour of duty in international marketing & sales at a major London children’s publisher, Emily crafts copy as naturally as breathing. Emily’s flair for the visual shines through in her ability to create the perfect design brief and her singularly stylish outfits (read serious shopping habit!).
Away from the office Emily hits the gym or city centre bars & restaurants with equal enthusiasm! She also speaks fluent French – just another of her many talents.
