Our Leadership Team

Tamara Littleton

I was goalkeeper for England University hockey and it's heavily influenced my management style.

The way people communicate on social media still fascinates me as much as it did in the early days. I love that we're still able to pioneer with our clients and I love the fast pace of change.

Blaise Grimes-Viort
Chief Services Officer

I performed, aged 7, in A Winter's Tale at the Barbican in London.

I love the sense that I am part of a global family of community practitioners, all focussed on best practice social media work. Nothing feels better than working alongside some of the brightest minds in the industry!

Emma Harris
Chief Marketing Officer

I have a very bad reputation when it comes to partying - someone people consider to be dangerous to be out with on a school night!

Background in FMCG, Former Sales & Marketing director for Eurostar, Trustee of The Marketing Academy. I only joined the team for a 6 month contract but when the time came to leave I just couldn’t do it! Never have I worked with a company who matched my own values so well; with such a genuine people culture, a passion for doing the right thing by their clients and desire to lead the industry to better things.

Treena Hales
Chief Operating Officer

I was born a redhead but I can't prove it because all the photos are in B&W.

I'm always blown away by the dedication, knowledge and skills of the people I work with. Those times when we have to come together to achieve what seems impossible "No really, this time I mean it, it is impossible." Then you nail it. Wow!

Ashley Cooksley
Chief Commercial Officer

When I was a baby, my ex-CIA grandfather would take me swimming with sharks and barracudas.

It's incredibly motivating to feel constantly challenged, and surrounded by people who teach me something new daily. Also, there aren't many other places where you can say that you work with Global Fortune 500 companies on a daily basis.

Wendy Christie
Chief People Officer

Reigning Dyce Primary School Highway Code Champion

It's not just about the amazing people who already work here - it's finding that untapped potential, and getting to know people who want to join the team. There's nothing quite like the buzz of interviewing someone who you know can bring something new and special to the agency.

Rachel Boothroyd
Chief Legal Officer

I once got lost in the Congo and had to live on pineapples for a week.

I am full of respect for the people I work with. Meeting them in person is a treat. Having spent 18 years in the City working in a predominantly male environment, I particularly appreciate working with some amazing women. And fantastically talented men who respect women and treat them as equals.

A sample of our gang…

Tanya Van Esser
Account Director

I love all styles of dancing and I cannot resist moving to a rhythm.

I get to work closely with our amazing clients and get to lead a fantastic team of driven Account & Project Managers who will stop at nothing to deliver excellence.

Suvi Manneh
Senior Social Producer

Enjoys ice swimming in winter.

I love the fact that we’re a truly global company with people in every continent. Not a day goes by that I don’t communicate with colleagues from one end of the world to another. I’m also immensely proud of the range of languages we speak!

Lisa Barnett
Strategy & Innovations Director

I've run the London Marathon twice - not very fast but I have the medals to prove I did it!

I work with some of the best and most inspiring people in the industry. We have a great management team in services, as well as the most creative content team!

Sherry Wilcox
Strategy & Innovations Director

I was the 30th employee hired at The Social Element – 9 years ago.

As Confucius said, “Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Without a doubt, the people that I work with help make this a job I love doing!

Natalie Marsan
Account Director

I'm related to the King of Western Swing, Bob Wills.

While our clients are pretty awesome, the people behind The Social Element really are the best part. There is a very real sense of support and kindness amongst team members and managers. The people at The Social Element really do stand behind the values that unite us.

Sari Kiisikinen
Senior Social Producer

I have a language degree in Hindi which has become useful in many everyday life situations.

The best days are the ones when I have found a way to help a team member in solving a problem, understanding a complex task or learning a new skill. I also love the feeling that we are at the forefront of new developments on social media, and other platforms on the Internet, which is really exciting.

Richard Simcott
Languages Director

I now speak five languages in the house with my wife and daughter (and many more outside that!).

I really enjoy that we are a truly worldwide organisation, working together and living on different continents. It gives us great insights into local situations, where our clients do business and I see it as a huge strength.

Vilmondes Queiroz
IT Manager

Although I'm Brazilian, I don't support a football team and I don't know how to samba =]

I love that The Social Element has no geographical limits for its employees as long as you've got a nice and secure internet connection of course. So, since I love exploring the world, The Social Element has been the perfect company for me to work at.

Jennifer Puckett
Senior Social Producer

My husband and I met at a swing dance conference 18 years ago.

I am so fortunate to work with intelligent and talented colleagues from places such as Finland, Canada, UK, Africa, Australia, Spain, Germany, Panama, all across the United States, and many more. How incredible to be changing the face of business with the best of the best, all across the globe!

Annabelle Blackburn
Sales Manager

I own over 150 activist t-shirts that I've collected from various volunteering gigs since university.

I love the fact that I get to work with a fast paced, tight knit team. Being spread all over the globe, I can have amazing conversations with people on three separate continents, all while finding new ways to be the best agency we can be for our clients.

Sandi White
Social Production Director

I used to be in sales for the agricultural industry and sold insemination products to dairy farmers!

There are numerous things I love about working at The Social Element. My favourites are working with amazing people, particularly my teams, as well as supporting the development of staff and their career progression.

Amir Ordabayev

I spend most of my free time maintaining and learning languages, but back in my school days my favourite subject was math. Even now, it helps me to see the new sentences as formulas.

I love the flexibility that the company provides and encourages. I am very grateful for the opportunity to work from home and to take the time off whenever I need.

“The quality of work is remarkable and the people managing our accounts are phenomenal to say the least. They are very professional and have always exceeded requirements: they truly go the ‘extra mile’ for us at any given time”.
