Meet the GingerMay management team.
Victoria Usher : Managing Director
As Managing Director and Founder of GingerMay, Victoria is the strategic driving force behind the business.
With a natural passion for PR and an intuitive understanding of communications, Victoria is an exceptionally approachable individual who is as happy writing a challenging white paper as she is rolling up her sleeves to pitch a press release.
Since establishing GingerMay in 2010, Victoria has developed a bespoke, personal, and untraditional approach to PR that provides clients with a meticulously detailed level of service.
From a background forged in politics – Victoria was a political researcher for two MPs at the Palace of Westminster – her career took a rather unconventional route from data analyst to global marketer to PR specialist. The skills Victoria developed, it transpired, were key to creating a flourishing challenger technology PR firm during the worst recession in living memory. She now shares her experiences and insight with developing entrepreneurs as a mentor in the Mayor’s International Business Programme for London & Partners.
An ex-dance instructor, Victoria hung up her heels in favour of the equally adrenaline-fuelled but less glam pastime of cross-country horse riding.
Kirsty Langan : Associate Director
Kirsty is a talented communicator with extensive technology, media, and advertising know-how.
She has worked in consumer and business-to-business PR for almost 20 years, providing valuable strategy guidance. With a network of high-level relationships across the gaming, TV, advertising, content production and technology industries, Kirsty provides in-depth insight on any area required by her clients.
Kirsty is a health fanatic and can be found pounding the pavements of London on an urban run, before winding down with the latest art-house releases at her local cinema.
Matthew Usher : Operations and Business Director
As Director of Operations and Business, Matthew is known as ‘The Fixer’ at GingerMay.
With a background in client facing roles for over twenty years, Matthew applies his versatile mind and skillset to a wide range of roles including head of IT, finance, SEO, and website development to help support the PR team. As GingerMay expands globally, Matthew spearheads the research and on-the-ground logistics as the company branches out to other markets.
Outside of work, Matthew is a competitive age-group athlete and frequently travels globally with Team GingerMay competing in IronMan and multi-sport races.
Karolina Throssell : Senior Account Director
As a former journalist, Karolina is a skilled writer with a unique perspective of the media landscape. Her accurate understanding of what publications require makes her highly successful at selling-in article ideas, stories, and releases.
Ever the networker, Karolina has a range of influential contacts that range from the FT, Marketing and The Register, to specialist publications. She is passionate about PR’s ability to transform brands and deploys her insight, and creativity, to produce game-changing coverage for her clients.
In her spare time Karolina likes nothing more than losing herself in reading the latest thriller or catching up with friends over cocktails.
Caroline Burgess-Pike: Account Director
Caroline’s background in journalism means she understands exactly what the press look for in a story. Her confident persona and excellent technical writing and communication skills make her a go-to contact for the media.
Caroline has worked with a range of clients across the B2B and B2C sectors. She has scooped stories with all the major press – from The Economist to Channel 4 News, and BBC’s The One Show to The Guardian – and strives to ensure our clients are regarded as illustrious thought leaders at the top of their industry. She won’t settle for anything less!
In her spare time Caroline is a volunteer charity campaigner. When she’s not trying to save the world, you’ll most likely find her at a music festival or walking her two rescue dogs.
Amy Lawrence : Account Director
Amy is a highly skilled PR expert with a keen eye for detail and an exceptionally well-organised approach to directing accounts.
With more than 10 years’ PR and marketing experience across a range of sectors including local government, foodservice, and technology, she brings a wealth of insights to the team and her clients, and is passionate about delivering quality at every level.
A self-confessed Instagram-addict, Amy loves nothing more than exploring the great outdoors with camera in hand, and seeking out her next adventure at home or abroad.
