Becky Reardon

Managing Director

 

Becky is massively driven by generating powerful brands that have a big impact for organisations. She loves getting to the bottom of why brands exist and the human, emotional side of brands. Having experienced both agency and in-house roles, Becky’s instilled a holistic integrated marketing approach at Embrace. At the weekends you’ll find her renovating her 1760’s house, riding her horse Rupert or on countryside walks with her dog Zac.

Ciarán Reardon

Digital Director

Ciarán brings transparency and clarity to digital strategies and strong user experience. He’s highly driven by maximising ROI for clients. Prior to his role at Embrace, Ciarán worked with some of the largest technology companies – HP, Microsoft and Equinix – overseeing the development of the latest digital assets: animations, iPDFs, eBooks, apps and websites. He’s also responsible for directing project production and processes at Embrace. Not many people know that Ciarán holds a World Record – he took part in the world’s longest rugby match in 2011, (24 hours, 30 minutes and 6 seconds!). He’s also completed the 106km Isle of Wight Challenge.

Grace Williams

Head of Design

 

Grace leads Embrace’s design team and specialises in brand development and graphic and digital design. She also leads Embrace’s internal FUEL initiative that keeps the team on track with the latest design and digital trends. In her spare time, Grace is a keen horse rider having competed at national level in her youth. She keeps fit these days by running around after her little girl, Alana. She also takes part in the annual Pretty Muddy Challenges at Tatton Park to raise money for Cancer Research.

Alice O’Regan

Marketing Account Manager

 

Alice is highly experienced in marketing project management having worked across a variety of industries. She has a keen interest in branding and in particular the development of a brand promise and personality and how this is conveyed across different marketing channels. In her spare time she enjoys baking – her speciality being cheesecakes of any kind! She also enjoys travelling and discovering newplaces and even managed to visit 4 continents in 1 year – only the Americas to go!

Alex Vann

Graphic and Digital Designer

 

Alex is our digital and animation specialist. He also enjoys creating and refreshing brands and is a keen web designer and photographer. Outside of work, Alex spends time on his BMX or mountain bike, taking photos, or sometimes both at the same time! His skill and passion for photography means spending his weekends travelling the country to weddings and music events – his most recent claim to fame is being asked to photograph The Sherlocks when they were on tour playing at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester.

Sophie Stubbs

Graphic and Digital Designer

 

Sophie is a multi-skilled designer with a keen interest in branding and identity, web design and illustration. Along with her degree in Graphic Design and certification in UX, Sophie’s experience within the non-for-profit and legal sectors means she’s an ethically and environmentally aware designer, creating solutions centred around the target audience. Sophie loves experiencing other cultures so when she’s not working you’ll find her snuggled up in-front of a box set planning her next getaway. Her favourite place visited so far has been Indonesia, next on the list – Peru!
