The Cartwright Team


We are very proud to be one of PR Week’s top agencies in the UK, with CC HQ based out of the Midlands. What began with roots in journalism for national publications, has evolved into a full spectrum of services for some of the biggest brands in the UK across a range of sectors.

Our team is a big family of Cartwrighters, each with bags of personality and a unique contribution to bring to the table.

  • Liz Cartwright. Managing director.

    Ex-journalist and ex-editor, Liz founded Cartwright Comms 15 years ago. Tom Hardy lover. A proud ‘yellowbelly’, Liz  captains the Cartwright ship to secure the very best results for our clients. Board member of ProCon Nottinghamshire & committee member for numerous charities.

  • Annie  Brafield.  Head of property and construction.

    One of Cartwright’s property and construction gurus loves raising the profile of industry leaders and maximising hot topics for thought-leadership.  A networking queen who is very at home with a porn star martini.

  •  Rose Hayes. Account director.

    Experienced & hard-working. Multi-tasker extraordinaire, digital guru and building products queen, Rose is also Cartwright’s mental health first-aider, third-sector supporter and down-right amazing operator.

  • Anastasia Smith. Senior account executive.

    Our consumer queen who regularly shows her inner sass and dogged determination with a media sell-in – landing results that amaze clients, going above and beyond their expectations.

  • Helen Ansell.  PR and marketing manager.

    Branding genius and self-confessed shopaholic. If she’s not fine-tuning stellar strategies for our clients, you can find  her  looking for the latest eateries to try , dreaming of sunnier climes or ordering a Pret.

  • Charlotte Dove. Account manager.

    The epitome of organised with an enviable collection of pastel-hued stationery. She exudes sophistication and style, and can often be spotted charming her contacts at networking events across the Midlands. 

  • Rachel Cullis Dorsett. Consultant

    Cartwright’s number one food and drink guru who can often be found at a networking event, a dinosaur adventure park or Tough Mary’s Bakehouse.

  • Tom Snee. Senior content specialist.

    Former journalist and content creation captain. Tom’s combination of excellent PR and video skills make him a real all-rounder, and he’s not too bad at sport either.

  • Manuela Holmes. Office manager.

    Super organised and a total machine with a financial plan. She’s the mistress of invoicing and paying the bills – and overseer of timesheets and  expenses claims. Perhaps most importantly she buys all the booze for our Friday afternoon wine time.

  • Jemma Page. Account manager.

    If you Google the word ‘organised’, you will see a picture of Jemma – probably in a Taylor Swift t-shirt. Whether it’s a media strategy, press release or social schedule, this former journalist has probably proofed the final version before you have even briefed her.

  • Holly Hill. Senior account manager.

    An out and out PR professional. Holly’s client management and people skills are second to none and she is by far the most supportive person you could have the pleasure to work with – when she’s not spending too much money on makeup.

  • Tom Home. Account executive.

    An avid rugby fan, writer, and self-proclaimed craft beer aficionado. Tom is always first to bring new ideas to the table and his determination means he consistently lands top quality coverage for our clients.

  • Charlotte Spencer. Account manager.

    A meticulous organiser, queen of all things process-led and fashionista of the Cartwright office, Charlotte is an ace at securing match points both on and off the tennis court.

  • Danielle Hall. Senior account executive.

    Former TV presenter and broadcast journalist. As well as being a copy-producing extraordinaire, she is a whizz both behind and in front of the camera. In her spare time, she can be found on stage singing, dancing and acting – all at the same time.

  • Nancy Collins-Burgess. Senior account executive.

    A super organised digital marketing and PR pro who regularly charms journalists and clients with a friendly face and professional manner. You will usually find her with a large ASOS parcel on her desk and planning for her next holiday.

  • Isobel Shipley. Junior account executive.

    Fresh-faced and full of beans, our latest addition to the team will tackle anything from social media to sell-ins. When she’s not hard at work drafting content for clients, she can be found planning her next party.

  • Katie Nelson. Account manager. 

    Our favourite Mancunian, Katie is like a dog with a bone when it comes to getting national coverage. A woman who could have invented Trello, she’s so organised. She’s a PR  supremo – and a gin fanatic.

  • Rebecca Langton. Placemaking.

    Rebecca is our placemaking supremo – efficient, tenacious and a world-wide explorer.

  • Ben Spray. Digital Consultant.
