Wild Card boosts leadership team

L-R: Lauren Peters, Ellie Kitcatt, Aaron Huckett

Independent communications consultancy, Wild Card, has strengthened its business structure for 2024 and beyond with the appointment of a new senior leadership team.

The move supports a new era for the consultancy which specialises in creating compelling narratives for progressive brands across the food & drink, travel & lifestyle and environmental & social sectors.

In a hat-trick of promotions, six-year Wild Card veteran Aaron Huckett has been promoted to director and heads up business development for the consultancy across its three offices in London, Bristol and Cornwall. Huckett also has strategic oversight of the consultancy’s brand activity and oversees all social and digital delivery.

He is supported in the refreshed senior leadership structure by Lauren Peters and Ellie Kitcatt who have both been promoted to the position of associate director with a specific focus across Wild Card’s food & drink and travel & lifestyle clients. Long-standing director, Sophie Langridge, completes the senior leadership team alongside MD Georgie Upton.

Upton said: “We are thrilled to be ending 2023 on a high with these promotions and a raft of new business wins. As we head into what is shaping up to be a very busy 2024, we have boosted our senior leadership team to reflect our focuses, ambitions and client roster – with such a brilliant team of talented people we have been able to appoint from within.

“Through their knowledge, skill set and dedication, Aaron, Lauren and Ellie have already made a huge difference to our offering while supporting wider aspects of the consultancy, from people care to business operations. These promotions are well-deserved and add fresh value for our clients.”
