Our Team

Abby Davies

Senior Receptionist

After graduating with a degree in Photography in the Arts, Abby decided to combine her love for photography and travel by working in Greece and America as a portrait & action photographer.

Abby joined Hope&Glory in January 2020 as Senior Receptionist and is loving being around like-minded people in such a creative and buzzing environment.

Abby always has some sort of craft on the go – whether it be knitting, macramé or doodling in her journal.  When not at reception, you’ll either find her eating copious amounts of chocolate or teaching friends how to fold mini origami birds during her lunch break.

Adam Mack

Strategy & Insight Director

Adam has been Hope&Glory’s consultant strategy director since 2019, having previously led strategy at Freuds and Weber Shandwick for 11 years. He has worked across sectors on clients ranging from UNICEF and Unilever to the Cabinet Office and PepsiCo. He’s proudest of the UNICEF Emergency Lessons work he did educating Europe’s youth on the plight of children in war and disaster zones. His passion for behavioural science led to the Sabre Award-winning “Science of Engagement” project. He is currently supporting our strategic work with the likes of Tourism Australia, Facebook and Guinness. Adam’s baldness pre-dates his fathering of two under-eights but his grey hairs do not.

Adrian Chitty

Partner

Adrian is a founding partner of Hope&Glory and a consumer brand publicist with some eighteen years’ experience. He joined from Good Relations, where he worked for eight years on brands including Honda, Southern Trains, comparethemarket.com, Texaco and Kelloggs. Adrian’s favourite piece of work at Hope&Glory was leading a two year creative campaign to promote EngineeringUK’s Big Bang UK Scientists & Engineers Fair to young teenagers and parents.. Currently his clients include O2, Accor Hotels, Barclays and UNiDAYS. He is a font of random knowledge in the office and can be often found handing out his now legendary mix of sweets and confectionary.

Agatha Hyatt

Account Manager

Aggie joined Hope&Glory in January 2019. Graduating from The University of Hull with a degree in Geography, Aggie decided to swap volcanoes and glaciers for coverage and pitches. Having spent a year with Porter Novelli’s technology team, learning the ropes with clients including Western Digital and Playstation, she was excited for a new challenge. Currently working across Sony, Aqua Sana and Norwegian Cruise Lines, she is keen to immerse herself in the fast pace of the Hope&Glory offices. In her free time, you will find Aggie searching Portobello Market for crystals to add to her collection and convincing her friends astrology is real- which it obviously is!

Alex Royce

Senior Account Director

Alex joined Hope&Glory in 2015, bringing with him a wealth of experience in sports PR and sponsorship. Since then he’s worked across all our sport and fitness accounts, including adidas, Guinness Six Nations, Virgin Active, Red Bull and AMEX’s sponsorship of Wimbledon.

Aside from the world of sport, Alex also works across our extensive drinks portfolio including The Macallan and The Famous Grouse. Outside of work you can find him supporting his beloved Aston Villa and claiming he can smell stone fruits in every whisky he tries.

Alicia Bult

Senior Account Director

Alicia joined Hope&Glory in October 2015 after graduating from Bournemouth University with a degree in public relations. Over three years, she has worked on a range of accounts at Hope&Glory, most notably IKEA, Sainsbury’s, American Express, HTC and EBS (Maker’s Mark and Jim Beam bourbon) – so it’s safe to say that her home interiors are always on trend and you’ll frequently find her sipping on old fashioneds. It is fitting then, that building the nation’s smallest pub for Meantime was one of her favourite past campaigns, closely followed by re-creating Kim Kardashian’s most iconic selfies with The G-C herself (Gemma Collins) to launch HTC’s U12+ smartphone.

Amber Druce

Senior Account Manager

Amber started her Hope&Glory journey in August 2018, having spent just under two years at London-based fashion and lifestyle agency, Emerge, where she worked across the likes of Eyeko, ellesse, and Airtasker. Previous to that, she spent time at BWP Group, where she helped bring to life IKEA’s very first ‘houseboat’ for its 4-week stint sailing along the Thames. She now works on the likes of StubHub, London Coffee Festival, and a number of spirit brands within the Edrington Beam-Suntory portfolio. After working hours, Amber can often be found jewellery making, listening to true crime podcasts, and FaceTiming her family cat.

Amelia Greenwood

Senior Account Director

Amelia joined Hope&Glory in 2014 after graduating from the University of Exeter and spending several months travelling South East Asia. Her work at Hope&Glory has spanned a wide range of clients and sectors, from managing multiple phone launches for HTC, to working with Barclays LifeSkills to create the world’s first Work Experience. More recently, Amelia has secured some killer pieces of coverage for the Airbnb press office and put London’s East Village on the map by promoting their cheese festival with a cheese-carved “Brie-oncé”. Amelia is known around the office for being an animal lover, and can often be found trying to convince her team mates to adopt an office puppy.

Since joining Hope & Glory as an intern in March, Anna has been getting stuck into accounts including Uber Eats, The Royal Mint, Buzz Bingo, Amaro Montenegro and Remember a Charity. When not in the office, you can find Anna in a yoga class, perfecting the art of a headstand.

Anna Terrell

Joint-Managing Director

Anna is Joint-Managing Director at Hope&Glory. A consumer, entertainment and lifestyle PR professional with almost 20 years’ experience, she has worked with world-renowned brands including Nintendo, Nokia, Kenco and Flora. She has been at Hope&Glory since 2016, heading up the agency’s work for Sainsbury’s, The Royal Mint, Etsy and American Airlines. Her favourite piece of work was the multi-awarding winning launch of Sky Arts on Freeview, which saw globally-recognised artist Spencer Tunick create an installation which allowed people to participate in the arts during the Covid-19 pandemic. Anna is often the logical problem solver in the office, which she says is down to having an engineering degree and a North-West upbringing.

Anna van den Berg

Senior Account Executive

Anna started her Hope&Glory journey in July 2021, having spent two years at London-based agency, Freuds, where she worked across the likes of KFC, Evian, Amazon Prime Video and Nike Football.

After a career switch from teaching, Arun spent three years at Dynamo PR before joining Hope&Glory in August 2018.  With a long list of tech clients, his work included everything from launching consumer hardware products to creating experiential events for the likes of Nvidia – turning London’s Tobacco Docks into a 4D VR Mount Everest hike, complete with snow and ice picks. Arun joined Hope&Glory to help grow the tech team and is currently working on clients including LinkedIn, Argos, HTC, American Airlines, Airbnb and DeNA. Outside of the office, you’ll likely find him on a football pitch, lost in the flashing lights of a club, or making small talk with strangers as an excuse to pet their dogs.

Becca Butler

Account Manager

Becca joined us as a graduate from the University of Surrey with a degree in Business Management. Having completed a placement year in-house at HTC VIVE, Becca discovered a love for PR and gadgets, whilst working alongside us on Virtually Real – an exhibition of the world’s first 3D-printed virtual reality sculptures.

Hope&Glory’s resident Imelda Marcos-wannabe, George can often be found shopping for trainers he definitely doesn’t need or have room for…!
