Sophie Comas

Founder

I am a freelance marketing consultant with significant travel and leisure marketing experience within blue chip organisations. More recently since setting up Rimu Marketing I have worked with a number of different small businesses across broad range of industries, from a travel agent, an IT company, a boutique hotel, interior designers, beautician, lifestyle coaches, even a canine massage therapist. Every business is different. In my experience the fundamental element to a successful marketing campaign is that the business owner is committed, engaged and part of the journey.

On a personal note, I have a passion for all sports including horse riding, running, tennis and netball. I love creative design, travelling and working with children. I am also a volunteer as a school governor at a local first school.

I am a current Chartered Marketer (MCIM) and member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing with a postgraduate diploma.

Introducing Ginette

Ginette East

Graphic Designer

Having been in the graphic design industry for over 20 years I have gained a vast experience working with many different industries; bringing an innovative approach to all of my graphic projects and producing consistently high quality designs for businesses large or small, new or established. I always work hard to realise my clients’ vision by creating thoughtful and strategically developed design solutions and am now delighted to be working alongside the team at Rimu Marketing.  When I am not at my desk and manage to find some time to relax, I enjoy being in the garden with my chickens.

Kittie Walker

Web Development, User Experience and SEO Specialist

After almost two decades in the banking sector as a turnaround specialist in the retail, hospitality, care and property sectors, I left to form Indigo Girl and then Avidmode. Since then, 12 years and counting, I’ve helped clients to grow their businesses online. My expertise is in developing customer-focused strategies enabling clients to reach, engage and convert their ideal audiences into raving fans and customers. I achieve this through a variety of disciplines including research, website information architecture, search engine optimisation, conversion rate optimisation and search engine marketing. Being a data nerd – a requirement of the job – some might consider my pastimes a little boring, but I’m never happier than when I am immersed in learning opportunities, experiencing new cultures and exploring how things work.

Marketing Assistant - Sarah Walton Davey

Sarah Walton-Davey

Marketing Assistant

After working as a Project Manager for over 12 years on some well-known FMCG brands, I took the leap into freelance work.  I now work with some fantastic small businesses who are looking for additional support to realise their growth ambitions.  I love getting into the detail and finding out what makes a business tick, so that the support I provide is tailored to both their and their customers' needs. I'm really excited to be part of the team at Rimu Marketing.  Outside of work, I am kept busy with two daughters and an ever-growing menagerie of pets. I love spending my down-time pottering in the garden and am also a volunteer at a local girl guiding Rainbows unit.
Polly Reed

Polly Reed

Marketing Assistant

After a number of years working in events, I decided to make the move to become a freelancer to fit in with family life. Now two children later, I am still supporting small businesses by helping them find an extra hour in the day so they can focus on the parts of their business that they enjoy the most. When I’m not working with Sophie and the brilliant Rimu Marketing team, I can be found running after my two boys and attempting to find some time to do yoga!
Introducing Jane Kelly Marketing Support

Jane Kelly

Marketing Assistant

Starting my career some 20 years ago I have worked across different areas of media and marketing.  From publishing, advertising and design; to market research, branding and packaging.  I am very excited to now be working alongside some fantastically talented individuals at Rimu Marketing. As a team bringing many different skills ‘to the table’ we continue to provide an excellent service to like minded small business owners.  Once work is done I enjoy spending time with my family, chasing after them on their bikes whilst I pretend to look like I’m having a casual run to keep fit! If not, you’ll find me at Wimbledon, Ascot, Henley or Arsenal Football Ground!
