You’ll find our creatives, Team Red, working across two locations; the leafy Leicestershire village of Buckminster and our buzzing city centre location in Nottingham

It’s here the synergy starts. Personal chemistry, razor-edge thinking, award-winning work. Dedicated teams handpicked to deliver the right results every time.

Three things you should know about us:

Our clients love us – we have a 97% client retention rate

We’re 100% dedicated to targeted metrics-based, measurable marketing

We’ve been delivering marketing support to our clients since 2009

the team


Passionate about performance

We’re an accomplished array of marketing folk; some of us are, it has to be said, a little geeky, some of us are ever so slightly OCD (well who doesn’t like things lining up!) and the rest of us have a little perfectionist streak to contend with.

Our team quirks are what add the diversity, the energy, the enthusiasm and the spark to each project we undertake. Together we gel to produce Team Red; a first-class team of dedicated strategists, planners, project managers, sales consultants, event organisers, designers, copywriters, developers and SEO specialists.

Ok, so we’ve admitted that we’re all a bit anoraky about our own areas of marketing, but there’s one passion we all share, and that’s…

Ketchup Marketing!

Michelle Ketchup Marketing


Michelle is our MD and Leading Strategist. Before Ketchup, Michelle was a high-flying Marketing Director and a Senior Project Manager, so building successful brands in highly competitive sectors is in her DNA. A one hour (free) consultation with Michelle and you’ll find your business vision is sharpened.

John - Ketchup Marketing


John is our Technical Director so he’s the tech wizard behind our digital capability. Most importantly, John can explain confoundedly complex technology in an easily understandable way. Rare gift. John, Michelle and Gary all met at IBM in 2000 and have worked together in different guises ever since. A dedicated team.

Paul - Ketchup Marketing


Paul brings a wealth of sales and operational leadership experience from inbound and outbound call centres to Business Development and Account Management teams with brands ranging from Vodafone to Rant & Rave. He has seen the inside of the odd scrum or two. If you have a pipeline problem, pass the ball to him – he’s full of talent.



As Head of Design, Lucy likes nothing better than solving creative and technical issues relating to client websites. Lucy’s interest stretches from branding to customer UX and apps and she’s worked across many high profile brands including the RSPCA, Boots and Honda. When Lucy is not at her screen (which is not often), she takes inspiration from the outdoors and loves travelling – and completing jigsaw puzzles!

Ellie - Ketchup Marketing


Ellie is our Brand Manager here at Ketchup. She started out after graduating from university with a degree in Fashion Marketing. Since then Ellie has had over six years’ experience honing her marketing skills, ready for working with Ketchup’s clients. When Ellie hasn’t got her head in client work, you can usually find her on a tennis court or dancing in a crowd of people at a gig!

Tom M

Tom M

Head of Search, Tom, brings along a wealth of SEO experience, including a spell working as a Digital Marketing Manager in Shanghai. Tom has worked across many business sectors and specialises in technical and on-page SEO. He’s used to working on large projects, creating strategy and vision that delivers results. When he’s not working, Tom likes to read business philosophy books and cook.



With over a decade of Marketing Management experience under her belt, Sam has worked with a plethora of clients across the health and beauty, FMCG, retail and B2B industries and perfected the process of developing a business through top-tier social strategies and digital marketing campaigns. Not only is she a marketing powerhouse, Sam also loves to unwind with countryside walks with her family, zumba and dining out with friends (especially if there’s a cheese board involved).



Our Creative Content Manager Olivia brings a wealth of marketing and content management experience from her previous work with brands such as UNiDAYS, Center Parcs and CARE Fertility. Olivia is a dab-hand at designing and implementing user-generated content strategies that champion thoughtful, imaginative copy at the forefront, with her experience spanning across video, web, social media and print collateral. Whether it’s singing as part of her church’s Gospel Choir or carefully crafting a brand’s identity, Olivia never misses a beat- and hits every single note.

Gary - Ketchup Marketing


Ketchup brander extraordinaire! Intensely focused. Most at ease when ‘creating’ at his computer. Gary is responsible for our web and print design excellence. His track record includes working for Huggies, Swinton Insurance, IBM, Matalan, JD Williams and much of the work in our portfolio.

Tom L

Kitty, our Graphic Designer, adores creating bold and unique designs for our clients. She’s extremely arty and when she’s not painting, drawing, or making art, you are likely to find her out in the countryside with her dogs.


A lover of all things linguistic with a BA Honours in English, Emily has gained a variety of experience through working in the Arts sector and writing everything from snappy social media posts to voiceover scripts and regional press releases. When she isn’t writing (or reading her extensive book collection) our resident copywriter can be found pursuing her passion for fitness and wellbeing by training for half marathons, hiking through the Peaks and winding down on a yoga mat.



Bringing a refreshing touch of creativity to her role as Account Executive, Ella loves to incorporate the expressiveness of her favourite hobbies into her work to think outside of the box and offer a fresh perspective for creating exciting campaigns. Ella started her career as an Archaeologist before moving to Marketing & Events and has worked for some key local heritage sites such as Wollaton Park and Belvoir Castle. Her love for local heritage is matched only by her passion for crocheting and cooking her favourite crispy chilli tofu!



With over 5 years of experience working in web development at companies such as Kuki and Xanda in London, Bikash loves nothing more than seeing a beautiful, functional website come to finality. Understanding how the web works beyond the user experience is what really makes Bikash tick, and outside of the office he’s an avid football fan who’s always looking for the next adventure, including a career break to travel around Nepal before arriving at Ketchup.



As Ketchup’s Digital Marketing Apprentice, Ole, joins the team with bags of talent. He is looking forward to using his creativity to help our clients get the best ROI on their digital marketing projects. In addition to scripting, editing, filming, and photography skills picked up whilst studying for a degree in Media Studies, cat-lover Ole adores horror films, journaling and writing poetry.

Jon - Ketchup Marketing


Our Technical Copywriter, Jon, knows how to turn complex subject matter into compelling content. He specialises in writing clear, concise copy for clients like IBM, Microsoft, Honeywell and Edinburgh University’s School of Astronomy. When he’s not immersed in a copy project, Jon enjoys nothing more than cycling around the remote Scottish Highlands. He also has a huge record collection.
