We are nothing without our people and it’s been a pleasure to celebrate with colleagues as they’ve been promoted in recent weeks, while we have also been glad to welcome Poppy Eccles to the fold – as an Account Executive within our stakeholder and political engagement team.

Poppy joins us following her graduation with a first-class degree in Politics and International Relations in Summer 2022, having spent several months working in Special Educational Needs in the education sector and completed an internship at Ofgem. She has already become a great support to the team and to clients alike.

Charlie Gilmartin has been made a Senior Account Manager in the team, in recognition of his exceptional client servicing as a key part of our stakeholder and political engagement team and having brought the firm new business from Boklok in recent months.

Kate Bullock, who joined our team via our internship programme in early 2022, has been made Senior Account Executive. She has proved to be a bright and insightful team player and has got her teeth into a range of clients – across retail and asset management in particular, and as an able digital communications practitioner.

Finally, back at the start of the summer, Matt Detzler was promoted to Account Director in recognition of his career progress and in particular his support to our Head of Political and Stakeholder Engagement, Gabriel Abulafia, with a series of presentations to clients and contacts about the changing picture of the make-up and trajectory of local councils. This presentation series has been well received by contacts from across the real estate spectrum – please contact Matt or Gabriel to enquire about whether it could benefit your business.

Kate Bourne, Managing Director of Redwood, is proud of the team: “Communications centres on people skills and we are proud of the great people we have on our team – Poppy has shown herself to be another great fit for Redwood and the clients we support.

“It’s a genuine pleasure to see the progress of colleagues from month to month and year on year. The promotions we have shared here are a clear indication of hard work, creativity and innovation and on behalf of all the team I congratulate Charlie, Kate and Matt on their achievements.”
