Simon studied at Liverpool University gaining a postgraduate certificate in Advanced Computer Science and joined Email Hippo in 2014 where he soon established himself as the dashboard expert and problem solver. He looks after IT security and systems, and oversees the production team.
When he’s not working you’ll probably find Simon on his computer at home gaming with the international community.
Job: Co-Founder & CMO
Lisa started her career in a London PR agency before working in internal communications.
She set up a communications consultancy business in 1995 and over the years worked with many different sectors. Her previous experience laid the foundation for her role at Email Hippo that covers marketing communications and business administration.
When she's not working at Email Hippo, Lisa is kept busy looking after her family.
Job: Marketing Lead
Jo listens to Johnny Cash at full volume and has been a marketer for 30 years with a special interest in software. She’s worked around Europe and in different industries at senior marketing levels. Her experience helps Email Hippo reach customers and recognise opportunities in different channels.
Outside of work she's usually in a garden, walking her dog on a beach, or building garden structures from salvage...one bit at a time.
Job: Customer Lead
Stuart is an account manager with years of experience at listening to customers and learning how to understand their needs. An enquiring mind - that's what Stuart has. That's why he's perfect at making the connection between relating to customers and influencing the software. He loves technology and often out-geeks the Email Hippo geeks!
Outside of work he hangs out with Bertie, the corgi-dog who is our security officer.
Adam’s best kept secret is that he studied accountancy but rather than pursue a career in numbers he became interested in empowering people to be more productive through software. He spent 20 years working in electronics distribution, supply chain management, sales and enterprise resource planning. Adam's knowledge of business systems and software, combined with his management skills, keeps the team on its toes and always looking forward.
You’ll find Adam on the move when he’s not in the office – travelling, having off road adventures, mountain biking, swimming and surfing.
Job: Accounts Lead
What Debra doesn’t know about bookkeeping isn’t worth knowing! She has many years of experience under her belt in all aspects of the job and particularly likes playing detective when things don’t quite add up as they should. She’s a stickler for detail and getting things done correctly, and on time. Debra joined Email Hippo in January 2018 having just returned from living in Spain for 10 years with her husband. When she isn't making Email Hippo add up, her two dogs, husband and grandchildren account for most of her time.
Job: Development Team Lead
Graduating from Plymouth University with a BSc in Computing, Sophie has years of .Net experience as a team leader for one of the world’s top five marketing and advertising agencies. Sophie leads the development team and brings client-side knowledge and an extraordinary insight into Harry Potter.
She’d love to cause havoc with an invisibility cloak and if she had a spell of her own it would be Ingenioso-progressio!
