Managing Director

Vanessa has over twenty years global communications experience in B2C and B2B arenas and has worked for some trail-blazing organisations before establishing Footprint Communications in 2005.  With a background in publishing, she has held senior communications roles at Wella, part of the Procter & Gamble group of companies, as well as the Virgin Cosmetics Company. Prior to this, her work at The Body Shop involved the production of the first ever all-encompassing Ethical Audit report which helped to change the face of sustainable business practice in the UK.  These ethics remain a part of Footprint Communications’ values today.
