Gemma Orton

Gemma Orton

Managing Director

Gemma believes that her greatest skill is organisation and planning – something which she also enjoys to teach. When not in ‘work mode’, Gemma’s ideal day is spent with her husband, Dave, and her two young children, Freddie and Harry. She also has a passion for giving time to support our next generation of young adults in a charitable capacity. Gem’s favourite things are food (well, most foods!) and drink. She is particularly partial to a good wine or gin. Her dislike is what Gem would call ‘mood hoovers’ (aka grumpy negative people). Gem’s taste in music has grown into an eclectic one, but most of her days are currently spent listening to the Paw Patrol or Peppa Pig theme tunes! Best quote? “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” – Robert F. Kennedy.

David Orton

Operations Director

Dave is best known for being our handyman at Mocha, drinking lots of coffee and whistling a tune. He has two degrees, a BSc in Physiotherapy University of Hertforshire and an MSc Sports Injuries Manchester Metropolitian University, this hard work at university has led him into some fantastic career paths, including being a physiotherapist for the NHS, Watford Football Club and currently Leicester Tigers, where he has spent the last 10 seasons working with the first team and he has also consulted for Red Bull. Outside of work Dave likes to spend time with the family and dog, exercise and spend time in Cornwall, which is where he was born and bred, so you’ll always find him in a pair of flip flops! His favourite artist is at the moment is Sam Fender and Dermot Kennedy but will happily list to all music. As much as he likes spending time with people, Dave dislikes negative people! His quote to live by is “Work hard, play harder”.

Alex Stone

Marketing Director

Alex’s greatest skill is having a mind of completely random facts – she’s great when it comes to pub quizzes. Her knowledge isn’t just random when it comes to marketing though, she previously worked in high-level marketing roles and Gemma says she is the most incredible marketing strategist she’s ever met, so really knows her stuff! When away from work, Alex loves to spend time with her family. One fun fact about Alex is that she has taken off in a plane 1200 more times than she has landed in one (good luck working that one out!) If you want to get on her good side then she likes listening to Bon Jovi and eating chocolate, as much as she dislikes the calories that come with it! A quote Alex lives by is “When you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression”. 

Alex Kowalczuk

Head of Business Development

Alex would say that relationship building is her best skill, which is a good job, being Head of Business Development! Alex says she has a degree in life, and a quote she lives by is “she believed she could and she did”. Her favourite thing to do outside of work is travelling to different countries – and has even zip-wired through the jungle in Thailand! Alex dislikes Marmite, ironing and Monty Python, but absolutely loves cocktails, cats and cheese… oh, and listening to Sir Tom Jones!

Bethany Shakesby

Marketing Executive

Beth’s writing and organisation are her best skills! With a degree in English from The University of Leicester and marketing experience at the Wickes head office, Beth decided marketing was the career she wanted to pursue – she even starred in a Wickes TV advert! If she’s not watching Game of Thrones or sipping Pornstar Martinis, you’ll find her spending time with her family, friends and Poppy the dog. She dislikes slow internet connection and weak coffee, but can be cheered up by listening to her favourite artist, Ariana Grande. A quote that Beth lives by is “Your attitude determines your direction”. 

Katy Burton

Katy Burton

Marketing Executive

Katy’s best skill is being highly communicative, and is known as the talkative one in the office! She previously worked in Influencer Marketing and studied Event Management & Business at Sheffield Hallam University. Katy has a love of Prosecco, Disney and skiing, and has even lived in Florida and the French Alps. Outside of work you will find her going on city breaks or going to festivals, and probably listening to her favourite artist, Drake. Her dislikes consist of Eminem and 80’s pop. One quote that Katy relates to the most is “She needs to sort out her priorities”. 

Georgia Banton

Content Creator

Being creative with words is Georgia’s best skill. Her love of words came from studying Journalism at Sheffield Hallam University. Her previous role was working as an Account Executive, but she soon realised content was for her! When she’s not at work you’ll find her at a gig, festival or booking another holiday! Her favourite band is The Courteeners and she has seen them around 20 times! Alongside this, Georgia’s favourite things consist of food, Red Stripe, shopping and going to the pub with friends. Her biggest dislikes include the song Mr Brightside and a rubbish cup of tea. Georgia’s quote to live by is “I’m here for a good time, not a long time”. 

Gail Bradley

Graphic Designer

Graphic design and artwork are skills that Gail is best known for. After gaining a HNC in Graphic Design, Gail hasn’t looked back and has worked in this role ever since! Her biggest dislike, aside from peanut butter, is a bad design. If she’s not listening to her favourite artists, Take That, Tom Walker and Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, you’ll find her walking Benjie the dog or spending time with her family. Gail loves a good cup of tea, sunshine and her garden, and her favourite quote is “Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart”. 

Jack Toogood

Office Manager

Jack’s best skill is juggling multiple tasks – with previously being a depot manager at a power tool company, it was a crucial skill to have. When he’s not at work you will find him walking Billy the dog or chilling out with his friends. Jack enjoys watching football and is a big fan of Derby County. His biggest dislike is cheese, except for when it’s on pizza – strange we know! When listening to music, his favourite artists are J. Cole and Post Malone, and his favourite quote is: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.”
