Team

  • Penny

    Chief Executive

    Penny

    Penny is responsible for leading our overall direction and overseeing the delivery of major projects. She’s also instrumental in policy development within the community and lobbying government to put our Quarter firmly on the map. Penny’s got a penchant for chai tea lattes (always) coconut water (sometimes) and kir royal cocktails (occasionally)!

  • Kirsty

    Head of Marketing & Communications

    Kirsty

    Ensuring everyone knows about the vibrant, versatile and quirky Quarter is Kirsty’s forte. From leading our communications to developing unique benefits for our businesses, Kirsty has it covered. Miss LifeandSoul hates to miss out and has to be the first to know what’s going on in the Quarter. She’s not quite succeeded in her request for an office dog…but she’s working on it!

  • Helen

    Senior Manager - Operations

    Helen

    Helen oversees the public realm area of our work including the street management team, security and resilience, sustainable future, greening and transformational capital projects. As our very own Green Queen, Helen is reviewing how she can make the Quarter and her personal life more sustainable, so you’ll find her knitting, sewing or baking on the weekends with her young family.

  • Racheal

    Events & Communications Producer

    Racheal

    Racheal brings over twenty years of events and marketing experience to BakerStreetQ. She is working on project strands including events, pop-ups, retail strategy, area identity and Christmas lights.

    Outside of the office, you will find Racheal enjoying a gig in London, long walks by the sea or a pint in a cosy pub!

  • Eleanor Swan

    Communications Manager

    Eleanor Swan

    Eleanor works on the Quarter’s communications channels, from the website and email updates to day-to-day social media.

    Outside work, she enjoys cooking, live music, exploring London and scrolling through Instagram.

  • Kate

    Smarter Giving Project Manager

    Kate

    Kate’s role is to identify how our members can support charities that are local to the Quarter and assist them with their CSR through our Smarter Giving programme.  Kate’s treat for all her hard work is travelling the world which she tries to fit in, in between juggling all her charity work. And if she doesn’t get that far, a country pub is her compromise.

  • Steph

    Operations Executive

    Steph

    Providing first-class office management support to the team comes naturally to Steph having previously managed multiple offices for a recruitment business. Steph keeps the operational, finance and administrative plates spinning at our HQ and when she’s not holding the team together, she’ll be lifting our spirits with her infectious laugh!

  • Kate

    Executive Assistant

    Kate

    ‘Virtual Kate’ as she’s sometimes known as, works remotely from home in Oxfordshire providing PA support to Penny, organising meetings, overseeing the database and producing board and steering group minutes. She also helps the marketing and communications team with the newsletter, producing the annual reports and takes on ad hoc projects. And when she’s not at her desk in her slippers, she’s out for a run, enjoying the countryside or spending time with her family.

  • Antonia

    Team and Events Assistant

    Antonia

    Antonia’s role is to assist the team with daily tasks, particularly with our training courses and events.

    With a passion for London and all it has to offer, you will find Antonia at a show or gig, exploring new places to eat or going on a long run.

  • Mike

    Security & Resilience

    Mike

    As a former Commander within the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), Mike is well placed to advise members on managing threats and risks. Mike leads the security and resilience area of our work and engages with members to enhance the resilience of the area.

    Outside of work, Mike enjoys travelling, gardening and driving his student sons around when they visit home!

  • Alhoussein

    Street Environment

    Alhoussein

    Alhoussein looks after the Quarter’s Street Environment full time in a public facing capacity. Al not only welcomes and provides support to visitors of the Quarter but plays a vital role in monitoring the street-scape to keep it a great place to visit, work and live. When he’s not working, Al is an Arsenal supporter and likes going to the gym.

     

  • Debbie

    Street Safety Team Manager

    Debbie

    Debbie is responsible for managing our Street Safety Team and enjoys keeping team morale high. Outside work, Debbie enjoys reading anything she can get her hands on, walking holidays in West Wales and spending time with family and friends.
