‐Associate Partner, PR & Marketing
Katy joins SPEY as an Associate Partner with over 20 years of experience in PR. Her role will be overseeing the creative strategy and direction for every PR client.
Katy started her communications career in London undertaking a graduate training programme with LEWIS, a global IT communications agency working with both consumer and business clients. Missing Scotland and family, Katy returned to Edinburgh where she led the Edinburgh office at Firefly Communications before moving in-house as Global PR Manager for The Famous Grouse at Edrington. Over 10 years, Katy worked on a range of high-profile campaigns including overseeing the first visit to Scotland of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge following their wedding. A particular highlight was leading the brand’s first PR-led marketing campaign and winning the UK Marketing Society’s Gold Award for Best International Marketing campaign, the first time it had been won by a Scottish brand.
In recent years Katy has held various roles working with food and drink brands including Edinburgh Gin, Ogilvy Vodka, Holyrood Distillery, Gaucho, The Real Food Cafe, and many more.
When Katy is not running around after her two daughters she enjoys playing her violin, which she has done since she was eight years old.
