Client Services Director
As Client Services Director, Karen is hugely passionate about delivering top-tier marketing ideas that make an impact. From assisting with the seed of an idea to watching it grow and succeed, Karen is always identifying and seizing opportunities for our clients to add value and achieve more. Simply put – business and marketing is part of Karen’s DNA.
It’s in Karen’s nature to challenge, ask questions and dig deeper into analytics in order to get a true understanding of a clients’ objectives and deliver outstanding results. Karen’s best memories at EDGE are from our many team nights out – even when she was beaten by Kelly at bowling.
HR & Finance Manager
As Finance & HR Manager at EDGE Creative, Liane is responsible for the management of the finance department as well as all aspects of HR. Liane’s skills, experience and qualifications in accounts and finance allow her to juggle multiple roles within the business, many of which sound awfully complicated to the rest of us…
In addition to her role, Liane is also responsible for making sure our EDGE team have everything they need to work comfortably and to the best of their ability. Liane adds a twist to this, incorporating her passion for shopping for all the quirky knick-knacks you’ll find in the office.
Account & Production Manager
As Head of Production & Account Manager, some may say Kelly lives a double life, balancing the noble title of EDGE’s resident “print genius” with her Wonder Woman-esque ability to just get stuff done. Some others, however, may say that she ransacks the EDGE office playlist with dated pop music, but we’ll let that slide.
On top of her aforementioned shapeshifting ability, Kelly knows print inside and out, having extensive print experience stemming all the way from her days as an apprentice. Outside of work, you’ll find Kelly at the gym, spending time with her five children, or relaxing on a much-needed spa day.
Pete has over 25 years of experience in sales and marketing, with skills gained from a number of industries ranging from insurance to engineering. Pete has a talent for building long-term business partnerships, with many of these strong partnerships spanning decades.
Pete works closely with SME’s across a huge range of industries, and also manages our exclusive networking events in collaboration with our clients. When Pete isn’t in the office, he’s supporting Birmingham City Football Club or spoiling his first grandson.
Kyri joined the EDGE team after 3 month’s work experience, where he demonstrated his impressive passion for market research. Kyri’s role as Account Manager means he is able to get involved in many different areas of marketing, which he’s – luckily – a big fan of, demonstrating his extensive skills in email marketing, data reporting and UX.
At EDGE, Kyri enjoys digging deep into website performance and analytics, but also applies his talent across creative projects, such as presenting our networking videos alongside Content Creator Jess. When he’s not enthralling us all in the office with his endless updates about football, Kyri spends his time at the gym, seeing friends and playing guitar.

After joining the team as a digital marketing apprentice, Lydia developed a keen eye for analytics and a passion for achieving results. Lydia’s loves watching projects grow from start to finish, and seeing tangible results from the campaigns she watches over so diligently.
When she’s not tapping away at her desk, challenging Facebook for answers or tweaking every last inch of an ad campaign to perfection, Lydia is learning to play the guitar. Lydia is a big fan of American Football, reading Shakespeare and generally being an all-round clever clogs.
As Studio Manager at EDGE, Mike loves nothing more than sending new websites out into the world. In fact, some of Mike’s fondest EDGE memories are of launching our client’s ecommerce websites, and proudly watching the first customers roll in.
Mike takes his passion for achieving results for clients further, and is driven by continually finding ways to improve every part of the development process. His goal is to make complex technology simple and accessible to all. When he’s not working away in the EDGE Studio, Mike enjoys photography, football, rugby and building very complicated things out of Lego.
Head of Design
Graphic Designer Ryan applies his extensive design skills and eye for creativity to a huge variety of client projects. Ryan is especially passionate about brand development, as well as working on projects that require his talent for illustration – drawing on inspiration from his many creative influences. As a graphic designer at EDGE Creative, Ryan has been able to develop his skills and create interesting and thought-provoking designs that stand out from the crowd.
Outside of being EDGE’s design wizard, Ryan participates in Mixed Martial Arts, and further develops his talent (not that he needs to!) through drawing as a hobby.
Senior Graphic Designer
Social Media Account Manager
Jo first joined the EDGE Creative team as a Digital Marketing Assistant. Several years and hundreds (if not thousands) of bottles of Pepsi Max later, she now makes up part of our office’s “Content Corner” as a Social Media Account Manager, bringing together her social media knowledge combined with her writing skills.
With her impressive level of music knowledge, Jo can regularly name a song and tell you an unnecessary music fact in less than 3 seconds from a song starting. This often takes all the fun out of listening to the radio in the office, but it’s certainly a talent, nonetheless.
Jess’s passion for storytelling, blogs and being an all-round bookworm has meant she’s perfected her killer content writing skills to suit the digital world. Jess likes letting everyone know how much she loves content, and expresses this through typing at a volume to rival that of a pneumatic drill.
Jess loves nothing more than watching her carefully crafted scripture being shared across the digital realm. She’s also a big fan of a good pub quiz, and regularly shares her incorrect answers with the team. Jess is most often seen with a notepad, but if you’re looking for her, you’ll probably find her and her unmistakable cackle at The Old Crown in Digbeth.
