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. Head of PR.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Claire Catlow - PR Consultant

    Fresh from a highly successful journalism career, Claire has the skills to get under the skin of clients and tell the stories that matter. Drag her away from crafting content and you’ll probably find her on a riverside dog walk.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Charlotte Dove. Senior 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. 

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Isobel Shipley. Account executive.

    Fresh-faced and full of beans, Izzy 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.

  • Victoria Greenhall. Marketing Assistant

    With a keen eye for detail and passion for everything marketing, Victoria is a social media whizz. When she’s not hard at work developing new marketing plans, she can be found dining out with friends or binging the latest Netflix series.

  • Olivia Hilliard, Account executive

    A ray of sunshine, Olivia prides herself on her creative and innovative ideas, paired with stand-out content creation. When she’s not buried in creative brainstorms with her eccentric array of stationary; she’s usually exploring the water on her paddleboard or finding a new hiking spot.

  • Peter Mumford. PR Intern.

    The man of a thousand edits, Pete is a video demon and more than handy when it comes to the written word. An avid runner, he’d be the first pick at a Cartwright Sports Day.

  • Manisha Sodera. Account executive.

    A content whizz who can tackle anything from press releases to a social media post. She is the queen of organisation; a day doesn’t go by where she hasn’t ticked everything off her to-do list.

  • Emily Dallison. Junior account executive.

    A charming and witty content creator with a passion for people, writing and current events. She oozes confidence which makes her sell-ins a breeze. When she’s not busy drafting killer content, she can be found online shopping; possibly to add to her outrageous pyjama collection.
