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)!

  • Racheal

    Interim Head of Marketing and Communications

    Racheal

    Racheal brings her MarComms experience to BakerStreetQ, having worked for over twenty years in marketing. Her interim role will oversee the delivery of key projects over the coming year including area identity, retail strategy, Christmas lights and Sustainable Future.

    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!

  • Kirsty

    Head of Marketing & Communications (Maternity Leave)

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

     

  • Terry

    Street Safety Team Manager

    Terry

    Terry’s responsible for managing our Street Safety Team and is well-versed in a public-facing role having spent ten years with the Met Police. Terry is passionate about making a difference in the Quarter, do say hi if you see him!

  • Svenn

    Street Safety Manager (Evidence & Investigation)

    Svenn

    Svenn is a long-standing member of our Street Team and is responsible for ensuring the evidence and intel gathered by our team gets to the key authorities, including active problem solving with police and council. Svenn loves building computers, gaming, books and watching football (Chelsea if you wondered)!
